Specific areas of training include hair design, hair care, nail technology, skin care/facials, hair coloring, chemical reformation, and salon development. Instruction also includes supervised field trips and demonstrations by professional cosmetologists. The Cosmetology Operator program is a full-time program with limited enrollment; students must attend class from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
