コスメトロジーライセンス
A stylists’ license in the United States is called a “cosmetology” license.
This includes many types of beauty care such as hair care, makeup, and nail care.

The cosmetology qualifying examination is carried out by each state of the United States and is divided into an academic section and a practical skill section, just like the Japanese license.
A person who passes both sections and receives a license is called a “cosmetologist.”

Testimonial from a graduate who participated in the New York stylist program
This diary was written by Ryuta, who studied abroad for one year in the New York stylist program.
Visa application Visa application
I was planning on studying abroad immediately after graduating high school. However, collecting the necessary documents took more time than I thought. I ended up getting the visa around the end of May.
My first day in New York My first day in New York
Departure in Japan.
My flight from Japan was delayed for four hours. The airline that I used flew to Newark, New Jersey. An acquaintance picked me up from the airport, and we headed to our shared apartment. I emailed my friends and family in Japan.
My second day My second day
My instructor gave me lots of useful and necessary information. It felt like the beginning of my life in New York.
My fifth day My fifth day
The orientation started at 9:15 a.m. I managed even though my English wasn’t great. The teacher was used to having Japanese students in her class.
My sixth day My sixth day
Classes started.  There was a teacher who could speak Japanese, and he supported me in various ways.  I felt better as I began to understand things that I hadn’t understood before.
After two weeks After two weeks
I had only studied English in Japan before, so I wasn’t sure how things would turn out. I quickly realized that communication and taking the initiative to speak up was very important. They say, “practice makes perfect.” I had an international class with students from seven countries.
After nine months After nine months
I received a diploma after completing nine months in the class without missing even one day. You can receive this diploma if you pass the final exam. I was recognized as one of the top students in my class.
After graduation After graduation
After I graduated, I went back to Japan temporarily. Then, I returned to the United States to obtain the New York cosmetology license. I took the academic portion of the exam in Japanese.
