Cosmetology – 1500 hours 

Theory and lab-clinic practical hours
All hours taught incorporate textbook, workbooks, videos, demonstrations’,
reinforce by reading, testing and practical practice on the clinic floor with
clients.   In addition guest speakers, demonstrators and vendors are invited to
attend and enhance each component we find that lends itself to a better
understanding and teaching of such subjects. 

You are taught theory classes and clinical floor practice-lab.  All contribute
to you being able to have an academic knowledge, understanding and ability to
demonstrate the art and science of Cosmetology to obtain a state license for
Cosmetology employment.
Each named class is taught from the text then demonstrated and practiced on the
floor to learn techniques and application of what was reviewed in theory.  On
the clinic floor we review “do you recognize type hair, scalp condition of skin,
direction to aim blow dryer etc…”
