The 1,500-hour cosmetology program prepares students to become licensed cosmetologists who can perform advanced techniques. By guiding them through the program's three levels (Core, Adaptive, and Creative), instructors help students build skills and confidence.

The esthetics program takes 600 hours, and you'll learn skincare innovations, ingredient and product technology, professional techniques, and business skills for a skincare therapist career.

At 1,200 hours, the barbering program focuses on the full barber experience, from teaching students how to do a classic taper or fade to relaxing shaves.
