The first half of your Cosmetology program is spent in the Junior classrooms. Your work will consist of lectures, demonstrations, practicing on mannequin heads and classmates, testing your knowledge on all the course subjects with written and practical examinations.
Our class sizes allow each student to receive individual attention from our teachers who will challenge you creatively and technically.
After completion of 600 hours, passing the written and practical midterm evaluations, recommendation of your instructor and providing a physician’s certificate, you will advance to the Senior floor with a Student Permit issued by the New Jersey State Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling.
In the second half of your program you will get even more hands-on in our Student Salon. While performing clinic services on public, you will build your self-esteem and knowledge to succeed in your future career, sharpen your skills through additional lectures, advanced demonstrations and salon management.
Our program is designed to give you the tool and confidence for entry level salon or spa positions.
