4 year college vs. trade/technical school?

Do you think there is more pressure to go to a 4 year college or university as opposed to a trade/technical school? My friend's daughter is a senior in high school and wants to go to cosmetology school. Her parents, however, think she would benefit more from a 4 year school. Plus they told her it would "look better" for her to go to a 4 year school. Thoughts?

If she's set on Cosmetology, then a trade school would be fine. However, if she wants to be a famous designer or dresser, then getting a four-year degree in fashion or something would be much more preferable. I'd say go to college, in case she changes her mind along the way.
