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.
