Hair Stylist

Program Tabs

Program Overview

As a Hair Stylist, you will provide many of the same services as a Cosmetologist, with the exception of providing nail and skin services.

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 the industry. You also learn to work with all types of hair 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 Hair Stylist License in any state. 

This program is not currently financial aid eligible.

Requirements

To be a practicing hairstylist, you have to pass the Arizona State Board of Cosmetology exam to receive an Arizona Hair Stylist License. The state board exam consists of a written test and hands on demonstrations.

The Board of Cosmetology may deny your application if you do not meet its citizenship and/or high school education requirements. Visit its website for details. 

 

Careers

Some prospective jobs in cosmetology are at day spas, resorts, salons and cruise ships. You also may take advantage of career services to gain skills in interviewing, resume writing, looking for a job and other career guidance. Through these services you will be better prepared to complete successful interviews and attain employment.
