Program Overview

The Cosmetology program prepares students to work in the cosmetology/beauty service industry. Students who are interested in becoming a licensed cosmetologist upon graduation must be enrolled in the program for three years. The Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology requires that students complete ninth grade before enrolling into the program. It is a state mandate that students accumulate 1250 hours to qualify as a candidate for examination and licensure with the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology.  Instruction includes but is not limited to basic skills needed in the care of hair, skin, and nails. Emphasis is placed on cutting, permanent waving, coloring, and styling of hair. Students also develop skills in manicuring, artificial nail application, nail art, make-up application and specialized skin care. Good communication skills are stressed, which are necessary to work with the public.
