Cosmetology

The Cosmetology program is offered exclusively at our Margate campus, and covers the basic knowledge and skills required to become an entry-level Cosmetologist and prepares students to sit for appropriate licensure exams. Students complete coursework in all facets of hairstyling including color, cut and chemical services. The program also provides courses in skin care and nail technology.

To enhance the educational and hands-on experience, our students use professional products from OPI, Rhonda Allison, Ofra and CHI. As a CHI partner school, our students receive unique instruction from CHI Professionals.

Students receive hands-on salon experience in our Student Salon and Spa, which serves the surrounding community with services at discounted rates, and helps ensure graduates are prepared to work in a real world environment upon graduation and licensure.
