Class Overview

Students who are interested in pursuing the cosmetology profession will access curriculum through e-books, textbooks, lectures, guest speakers, career related field trips, research and projects.  This program uses both classroom experience and hands-on training in a salon-like setting and off-site field experience.   Students will study professionalism; leadership and ethics; sanitation; sterilization and hygiene; anatomy; laws, rules, and regulations; shampooing and related chemistry; waxing; permanent waving, hair straightening and related chemistry; finger waving, pin curls, roller formation, blow-waving, and related chemistry; manicuring and related chemistry; basic aestheticism, facials, makeup and related chemistry; tinting, bleaching, rinsing, and reconditioning and haircutting. Year II students will be more involved with scheduling appointments and performing services on clients both in the school setting and out in the community.  Upon completion of the program, students may use some of the accumulated hours towards the 1500 hours required for the cosmetology licensing examination depending upon their academic standing in the program and the post-secondary school of their choice.
