    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
    Cosmetology involves the science of improving beauty through the care and treatment of skin, hair, and nails. Students in the Cosmetology Program learn all aspects of hair, nail, and skin care. In addition to technical skills, students learn hands-on by participating in clinical experiences. During clinical, students practice their skills in our on-site beauty salon where they schedule appointments with clients, sanitize equipment, perform services and keep accurate records.

    PROFILE OF SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS
    Many in this field are artistically inclined, possess positive attitudes and strive to keep up with current hairstyle trends. Students must be willing to learn chemistry and anatomy as it relates to the cosmetology field. Other characteristics of successful cosmetologists may include manual dexterity, eye-hand coordination, color perception and the ability to accept constructive criticism. Physical demands include standing or sitting for an extended period of time and exposure to chemicals (with proper ventilation). At a minimum it is recommended that students follow an academic schedule that consists of college prep courses in English, math, science and humanities
