The Cosmetology Program offers a variety of choices for people seeking entry-level jobs as well as currently employed individuals who wish to enhance their skills.
Knowledge of the theories of hair, skin, and nail care is coupled with practice of the various techniques used in salons.
Clinical work experience is performed on the public and students in an actual beauty salon atmosphere. Graduates also serve a six-month apprenticeship before taking the state board exam.
After successful completion of the prescribed hours of instruction and the six-month apprenticeship, program graduates are eligible to take the examination administered by the Kentucky Board of Hairdressers and Cosmetology to become licensed cosmetologists.
There are no special admission requirements for the program.
This program can be completed in two years.
