COSMETOLOGY COURSE OUTLINE
This is an outline of the general manner in which the students spend their time in school. The first two hundred (200) hours of training; which is referred to as Level One, are spent in formulating a basic orientation in cosmetology; which includes a basic introduction to procedure, safety and sanitation in shampooing, draping, conditioning, manicuring, scalp treatments, hand and arm massage, hairstyling, hair coloring, hair cutting, permanent waving and the theory and practical theory associated with these subjects.
Once the first two hundred (200) hours are completed, students are assigned to groups according to their level of training. Groups will be scheduled for theory class, practical class and time in the student salon.
The primary purpose of the Cosmetology program is to train the student in the basic manipulative skills, safety judgments, proper work habits, and desirable attitudes necessary to pass the state required examination and for competency in job entry-level positions in Barber/Cosmetology or related career field.
Upon completion of the course requirements, the determined graduate will be able to:
1. Project a positive attitude and a sense of personal integrity and self-confidence.2. Practice proper grooming and effective communications skills and visual poise.
3. Understand employer‑employee relationships and respect the need to deliver worthy service for value received.
4. Perform the basic manipulative skills including hair styling, shaping, lightening, tinting, chemical reformation, scalp/hair conditioning, facials, manicures, pedicures and nail extensions.5. Apply the theory, technical information and related matter to assure sound judgments, decisions, and procedures.
To ensure continued career success, the graduate will continue to learn new and current information related to techniques, trends, fashions, and methods for career development in Barber/Cosmetology and related fields.
