Our cosmetology course combines theory with extensive hands on experience to provide you with a complete understanding of beauty and wellness. The program includes hair cutting, color, texture services, nail care, makeup application, business development, retail knowledge and the concept of gaining and retaining clients. Upon completion, students move on to intensive real-world training to hone their skills.
The 1500-hour Cosmetology course is a program of 57 weeks that has instructor-led classroom and clinical training as well as practical hands-on application. Training encompasses three types of learning: theoretical knowledge, the foundation of the students' education; practical experience, the application of knowledge; and professional business building skills, vital for the student's success. Each phase of the student's education emphasizes a different combination of learning approaches. The Cosmetology program is comprised of hair and scalp treatments, hair care rinses, hair shaping, hair arranging, chemical waving and relaxing, hair coloring, facials, skin care, hair removal, manicuring/pedicuring, professional business-building skills in management and career development, and employability skills.
The last phase of the program will concentrate on Precision Trends in haircutting, hairstyling, and advanced hair coloring and re-texturizing. During this phase of training the student will be accompanied by licensed educators within a salon environment. Students will learn the latest styles and techniques in haircutting, hair styling and hair coloring.
The objectives of this program are to prepare the students for the state licensing examination in cosmetology and provide the training that will prepare them to enter into the field of cosmetology as a cosmetologist, retail sales specialist, salon manager, or salon owner. Students will learn technical, personal, and business skills, with a focus on Aveda techniques and products.
