Hands-on training begins day one. You will learn how to properly use your tools and the fundamentals of cutting, color, texture, styling, skin and nails needed for real-world success. You will practice on mannequins under the close, personal attention of our instructors guiding you every step of the way.

Classroom education is the foundation of your in-depth knowledge of the cosmetology industry. Although the classroom is not where you will spend the majority of your time, it works side-by-side with the practical education to introduce the fundamentals of cosmetology and prepare you for state exam.

  • Professionalism
  • Infection Control: Principles and Practices
  • Properties of the Hair, Skin, and Nails
  • Basics of Coloring and Texturing

The salon floor gives you practice in a real salon environment under the supervision of our instructors. Throughout the program, you will perform a variety of services on clients, learn salon functionality, and develop a professional customer service presence. The salon floor allows you to expand your skills, learn more creative techniques, develop speed, and gain the experience needed to step directly into a real salon when you graduate.

Throughout your time in this program, you’ll learn, develop, and hone the technical skills needed to be successful in your career as a cosmetologist, while gaining the knowledge needed to pass the state exam. During this journey you will develop relationships, build a portfolio and make connections to start your cosmetology career and build your future in the field.
