Cosmetology is a two-year program for students who enjoy working with people, being creative and artistic and who have the desire to learn a life-long professional career. The field offers many exciting career opportunities such as nail technician, hair stylist, make-up artist, hair color specialist and esthetician. 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 the program.  

Field trips, industry presentations, community service projects; in addition to a student–run salon, are key elements of the program
