Our Cosmetology course covers 1,725 hours of training, taking approximately one year to complete with good attendance on a full-time schedule. It consists primarily of hair care and design, but also includes skin care, makeup, natural nail manicuring and pedicuring procedures. Students will begin their training on mannequins during the freshman phase (first eight weeks) of the course, and progress to practical training on live models. The bulk of practical experience is acquired on models and patrons who come regularly to the Academy to receive services.

Students will be required to attend a full-time Monday-Thursday schedule. Call for more details! (509) 624-3244
