Students learn the necessary skills to succeed in the cosmetology profession. They receive instruction in the composition and care of hair, nails and skin. Cosmetology theory and practical work are provided for each student during this two-year program. Field trips, industry presentations, community service projects, and a student–run salon are key elements of the program.
