About the Program:

A student in the Cosmetology program will be introduced to the skills surrounding careers in the beauty industry. Purchase of a cosmetology kit is required. Competence in hair care, hair cutting, skin care, and nail care are obtained through learning techniques and practice on mannequins. Advanced practice on classmates and then clients will take place in the school’s salon. All hours earned during daily class, evening class, and summer school are applied to the 1250 hours of instruction needed for the PA State Board of Cosmetology State Board Certification test. State licensing can be pursued once the required number of hours is in place.
