Louisiana author, hair stylist, and owner of The Cut House Salon, Melissa Goudeau, released her first book, So You Wanna Be A Hairstylist…That’s Cute. This book provides real-life advice for those thinking about going to cosmetology school.

From the book: “So, you think you want to be a hairstylist? You've got an itch, you've got questions, you're wondering if this is just some sort of childhood dream. I get it. But doesn't everyone question themselves going into a career path?  Just because you've worked on some friends' homecoming updos and did your little sister's makeup a few times does not make you a cosmetologist.

 

But it does mean you're creative, and that's a start. Now take the next step. Cosmetology is about succeeding in these three categories: hunger, hustle, and brand. You’ve got questions about a career in cosmetology and this book has the answers. It will give you the good parts, the bad parts, and all the honesty you’ll need to make the decision to step into the hair world—you’ve got this.” 

 

— Melissa Godeau, Author, So You Wanna Be A Hairstylist…That’s Cute 

After being asked for advice on going to cosmetology school from many clients, Melissa Godeau searched for resources about the beauty industry. When she realized the absence of these resources, she began writing. She hopes this book will help aid those who are thinking about a career in beauty.
