The 1000-hour cosmetology course is a program that is about 27 weeks for full time and about 44 weeks for part-time that incorporates instructor-led classrooms and clinical training with 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, skincare, hair removal, manicuring, pedicuring, professional business building skills in management, career development, and employability skills.

The objective of this program is to prepare the students for the state licensing examination in cosmetology and provide the training that will prepare them to enter 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 techniques and products.
