Below is listed the recommended equipment.  If you already have it, or something equal, you can use that.  You may upgrade any of your equipment if you wish.  The cost of the complete kit as suggested is approximately $800.  You may also purchase your equipment each week or month as you need it.

On your first day...

bullet On your first day of class, we will provide you with tools to mark all of your equipment with your name or initials so that if you lay it down somewhere, we know who to return it to. 
bulletYou need to bring some sort of tool box or fishing tackle box to keep all of your equipment organized.  The tool box pictured below is the favorite among students and staff alike as it is on wheels and has plenty of room for added equipment.  It is also very reasonably priced at only $25 at Wal-mart!  

Dress Code

bulletYou will need a scrub type nylon smock top to wear to school every day.  If you have some, you can wear them but it must be made of nylon, not cotton (hair sticks to cotton and takes a long time to dry when you get wet!) 
bulletYou can wear black pants, shorts or skirts (no shorter than 1" above the knee) made of denim or nylon.  These are good fabrics because hair does not stick to them.  Sometimes you can find the nylon pants at Wal-Mart with the jogging type pants for as little as $10-$12.
bulletWear closed toed shoes with no heels.  Your shoes need to be comfortable and have non-skid soles like tennis shoes or crocs.

Equipment Needed:

This is the type of tool box most of the students like.  You can purchase this (Stanley brand) at Home Depot or Wal-Mart  or K-Mart for around $25.  It has a handle and is on wheels for easy transport if needed.  It has lots of room and divided compartments for your blades, scissors and other tools.
