Cosmetology is the career for you.

We take pride in the fact that we have trained many, many successful salon owners,

1500 Hour Cosmetology Program Objectives

Our Cosmetology Course is designed to teach and allow each individual the opportunity
to practice the art of hair styling on all types of hair. By the end of the cosmetology course,
each student will have received 1500 hours of state board approved training. They will
learn how to give a professional shampoo, learn the art of hair shaping and cutting. The cosmetology license is a general beauty license that will allow the licensee to work as a
beautician, manicurist, esthetician or stylist. The student will be able to give a professional manicure and facial. They will also know how to mix hair colorings to achieve the desired
shade and apply solution in a professional manner in order to receive optimum results. The student will learn to color hair, perm or relax hair and learn state board cutting techniques.

A graduate of this course will be able to take the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology
examination. There are three components to the cosmetology education, theory (book
work and lecture), practical (practicing on each other or mannequins, and clinical (working
on actual customers). Students begin as junior cosmetology students. They can achieve
senior status by testing out of the junior program after they earn approximately 300 hours.
All full time students will have theory class in the mornings. The junior students then work
on their skills in the junior practical room. Senior students will work in the clinic, in the senior practice room, or study in the study hall. Junior and Senior students will have ½ hour for
lunch as assigned by the instructor. Senior students may stay until 5:00 p.m. Students
are given tests after completion of the chapter. Part time students have theory once
during the weekday evening hours. Part time junior students work on practicals during
the week and on Saturdays. Part time senior students have theory during the week
along with both clinical and practical time. Saturdays will be spent improving their skills
in the student clinic.

Tests are primarily multiple choice to correspond with the State Board of Cosmetology test,
but will also include essay and fill in. We use the Milady Standard Cosmetology Textbook,
Milady Standard Practical Workbook, Milady Standard Theory Workbook and Milady Standard
Exam Review along with corresponding lesson plans and support materials. Theory is taught through a combination of lecture, handouts, videos, workbooks and reading. Practical is taught through demonstration, lecture and hands on practice.

1800 Hour Cosmetology & Manager Program Objectives

This course will fully train you as a cosmetologist with much more. This combination
course is designed to teach the full cosmetology course plus and allow each student the opportunity to learn how to handle the responsibilities of running a salon efficiently and
effectively. The student will learn everything from the cosmetology course plus salon
management. The additional 300 hours will consist of 100 theory hours with 200 clinical hours.Management students will continue in the theory class and work on clients.

They will learn how to solve problems in the salon including diagnosing problems with
hair, scalp, nails and skin, and recommending remedies. The student will learn how to
schedule appointments, take inventory, hire and train personnel, maintain a bank account, bookkeeping and how to run a salon floor. Students will practice advanced salon techniques
in coloring, cutting, styling, perm waving, and gain further knowledge in all areas of cosmetology.
A graduate of this course will be able to take the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology examination
in Cosmetology and Management.

Because a cosmetology manager can work in a salon without supervision, this course
gives the student a priority in the job market and a chance for greater income. In addition
to renting a chair, table or room in an existing salon, you must hold a management license.
A student that is enrolled in this course will complete the cosmetology program and begin management theory toward the end of their cosmetology program. At the conclusion of the
theory portion they will be assigned to the clinic floor to help manage the clinic. The student
will be given written tests after the completion of the chapter throughout the management
portion of the class.

Tests are primarily multiple choice to correspond with the State Board of Cosmetology test,
but will also include essay and fill in. We use the Milady Standard Cosmetology Textbook, Milady Standard Practical Workbook, Milady Standard Theory Workbook, Milady Standard Exam Review, and in the management portion Milady’s Successful Salon Management and Milady’s Successful Salon Management Workbook along with corresponding lesson plans and support materials.
