Cosmetology Program Overview
(includes lash extensions!)
During COVID-19 restrictions for higher education, students begin their education online before transitioning to on-campus training.
Our program is 1600 hours, which should take about 13 months to complete. We break it up into four modules, the first one being 18 weeks, which allows plenty of practice time on mannequin heads to build confidence before transitioning to our clinic salon floor to work on guests.
Although the emphasis is on hair, students also learn basic nail and facial services. We also include lash extension certification training so that our graduates can increase their earning potential once they become licensed.
Our curriculum covers these topics and much more!
- Cutting (short and long hair cuts)
- Styling (thermal, braiding, special occasion)
- Coloring (foiling, balayage, bleach/tone, permanent)
