Generally, the professional in the beauty field must be in good physical health for he/she will be working in direct contact with patrons. In most aspects of the beauty culture field there is a great deal of standing, walking, pushing, bending and stretching, and sometimes for long periods of time. A person must consider his/her physical limitations in terms of making a career choice that involves extensive training. We promote the acceptance of students with physical limitations or disabilities if these students believe they can fulfill training demands.
