The Cosmetology program offers students the opportunity to gain proficiency in hair cutting, coloring, permanent waving, chemical relaxing, manicuring, pedicuring, facials, and related procedures. Upon completion of 1000 hours, students will be prepared to take the California State Board of Cosmetology Examination to become licensed. Competencies are assessed regularly in compliance with the California State Board of Cosmetology criteria. Students completing the program may expect to enter the industry as a hair stylist, designer, color, and perm technician, salon owner and operator, esthetician, skin care specialist, or manicure technician.

To receive program certification, students must complete all classes within a 2-year time frame. To receive a career technical diploma, students must also provide a high school diploma or high school equivalency.
