Cosmetologist

A cosmetologist is someone who specializes in hair, nail and skin care. You will provide beauty services, such as shampooing and conditioning, cutting, coloring, perming and styling hair. Additionally, you will braid, press, curl and relax hair, design hairstyles, and provide nail and skin services. 

Health Sciences

You will learn the skills necessary for establishing and maintaining a clientele; sanitation practices and requirements; and knowledge of state laws and business management skills specific to cosmetologists. You also learn to work with all types of hair, as well as nails, waxing, and facials, as well as how to provide the best customer service.

After you complete your Basic class, you move to the clinic setting. The school has a salon open to the public. In the clinic setting, you will provide various services under instructor supervision.

Successful completion of your hours, with a score of 80% or higher, makes you eligible to apply for graduation to receive your certificate of competency, but does not guarantee you a License in any state.
