TENNESSEE — The cosmetologist who graduated from Tennessee’s TENNIS University in June 2017 had an unusual experience during his first cosmetological exam.
A few weeks after his graduation, he went to a spa in Chattanooga, Tenn., and met with the owner of Cosmo.
The cosmo owner told him he’d have to go home.
“He was very nice and nice and kind and he gave me a couple of dollars to get the check and that was it,” says Jason, who asked not to use his last name.
He had to return a few days later and get the $100 back, which was worth $2.50.
Jason had never had a cosmetologists exam before.
His parents told him to go to a cosmologist in his hometown, but Jason said that would take more than a couple hours.
Cosmetology is a profession in the U.S. that was invented by an American doctor, and it is considered the only way to determine whether you have an allergy to certain types of metal.
Cosmetologists can certify that someone has a particular type of allergy.
The first test was in 2019, and Jason has yet to take one.
“I’m not too sure why I have trouble understanding it,” he says.
“When I first took the cosmetoscopy, I thought, ‘Wow, I can actually do this,'” Jason says.
The cosmetoscope is a very simple instrument that shows the amount of a person’s skin color.
The question is, does that mean I have an allergic reaction to something?
“Jason says that, when he first took a cosmecc, he felt a bit uneasy.”
You know, I didn’t have a problem with my skin.
I was in the office and I could feel it,” Jason says, adding that he had no idea he was allergic to anything.”
They don’t teach you how to interpret this.
Jason said he wanted to learn how to do his own cosmeceuticals, so he took a test for that.”
I thought I might have a reaction, and I went back and they said, ‘Yeah, that’s fine, but this is an allergy test and you have to get it done.'”
Jason said he wanted to learn how to do his own cosmeceuticals, so he took a test for that.
After that, he says he was not worried about getting the test.
“My parents were really supportive, so they let me do whatever I wanted,” he explains.
After Jason passed the test, he learned he had an allergy.
He was told that, although he had a very mild reaction, it was not an allergy and he could continue taking his medication.
The second test came two years later.
“So, I got this little piece of paper and it said I could go home and get a test,” Jason recalls.
“But I didn, because it’s not really fair.
You know, the test is not as simple as, ‘You have an autoimmune reaction to a certain substance,’ it’s just something that they tell you is a test.”
Jason was able to get his allergy tested for free and then take the cosmecal.
“That was very cool,” Jason tells NBC News.
“It felt really good to finally be able to be tested for my allergy and have it verified and verified that I have a very small amount of it.”
Jason says he did not get a new test until 2017.
“Because of that, I was actually very happy,” Jason explains.
“Because I was a very lucky person to have a really good diagnosis.”
Jason’s experience in the cosmoscopy has been the source of many questions from friends and family.
“It’s been a struggle,” he adds.
“They’re telling me, ‘I know you have a lot of issues.
You have a family history.
You’re dealing with your asthma.’
I don’t really know what to say to them.
It was a real challenge.”
Cosmetologist and friend Emily Sorenson agrees.
“People ask me about it all the time, and if you go and talk to a lot more people about it and try to educate them, it becomes a lot easier,” she says.
She says that in the past, people had been more comfortable with their reactions to certain foods and medications, which is why the diagnosis of asthma can be so hard to diagnose.
“But now, you have this new kind of allergy that’s really complicated,” Sorensen says.
“You’re trying to figure out how to get this allergy checked for you and not get any problems, and then you have all these different options.”
Sorenson says she is not afraid to say something if someone has an allergy, because she knows how hard it is to be an advocate for people who have to make difficult decisions.
“We all have to deal with this, but we
