The Cosmetology program is a 2 year class that culminates in industry certification by the Virginia Board of Cosmetology. Students learn both the theory and practical skills necessary to obtain their cosmetology license at the end of their second year.
The program introduces the history and opportunities that the cosmetology industry provides as well as life skills, professional image, cosmetology sciences, hair care, nail care, skin care and the business aspect of managing or becoming a salon owner.
In a salon setting, students practice professionalism and skilled techniques on manikins, fellow classmates, school personnel, and the general public.
