Get Training from Beauty Industry Experts at Eric Fisher Academy in Wichita!
If you’re thinking about becoming a cosmetologist or hair stylist, you’ve probably looked into a few cosmetology schools in Kansas to help you decide which you want to attend.
It’s a decision you don’t want to take lightly, as wherever you choose will be responsible for helping you to launch your cosmetology career. You’ll want to pick the school that you believe will best set you up for success.
Not only will you need to learn how to cut, style, and color hair; apply makeup; and give manicures and pedicures. You’ll also need to understand the business side of the industry if you want to go far. At Eric Fisher Academy, our Prosper U curriculum helps you achieve your goals – and you won’t find it at any other cosmetology school.
What is Prosper U?
The innovative Prosper U curriculum is easy to learn, engaging, and proven to work when applied in real salons, where our students go on to work after earning their certificate and passing their cosmetology board exams.
The curriculum discusses best business practices linked to retailing, client retention and rebooking, relationship-building, getting referrals, and increasing your average ticket.
While mastering cosmetology techniques is important, the knowledge our students get from the Prosper U curriculum is incredibly important for creating a rewarding beauty career. Here’s why it works!
1. Prosper U builds customer service skills.
Cosmetology is a people-oriented industry. Cosmetologists with good people skills, who provide excellent customer service to their clients, are more likely to succeed than those who aren’t building relationships and keeping their customers happy.
Would you like to go back to see a service provider of any kind if they were rude or cold to you, or didn’t meet your expectations? Most people wouldn’t! And that’s why, in a service-based industry like cosmetology, those customer service skills are so important.
Your clients have choices in where they go to help them feel beautiful. Make sure they prefer your station in your salon.
2. Prosper U teaches budding cosmetologists how to schedule appointments for maximum efficiency and productivity.
There’s an art to scheduling the most clients you can accommodate in a day while still doing your best work. Because different services require longer or shorter amounts of time and effort, there’s actually quite a bit of logistics involved – far more than simply writing down a name in an appointment book.
Prosper U curriculum teaches Eric Fisher Academy students how to properly plan and schedule appointments so they can work with more clients each day, with stunning and beautiful results, while running a profitable business.
3. Prosper U teaches students how to build a salon culture.
Have you ever walked into a business and immediately got a great vibe from it? And have you ever worked somewhere that felt uplifting and positive? Designing a salon culture that keeps both your employees and your customers happy is critical to your success in your cosmetology career.
Build the right culture, and your customers will come back again and again, and your employees will stick around for years. The wrong culture, though, can make it hard to retain clients and stylists.
Prosper U delves into the nitty-gritty of how to build a salon culture and keep it going with your business decisions and actions. This is especially important for cosmetology students hoping to own their own salons one day.
4. Prosper U is a proven method only available at our cosmetology school near you.
Eric Fisher, our founder and world-renowned cosmetologist, designed the Prosper U curriculum himself based on the principles he learned during his career in the U.S., London, and Paris.
His expertise went into formulating these important lessons for cosmetology students, and are only available at Eric Fisher Academy in Wichita, Kansas. We know it works because Eric Fisher has lived it himself – and so have thousands of successful graduates from our cosmetology school.
