Upon completion of the cosmetology program, students are prepared to become, and succeed as licensed cosmetologists.

Portfolio Building

Portfolios are a crucial part to getting started in the industry. When interviewing, employers will review portfolios to gather knowledge about a candidate’s skills, talents, accomplisments, and reputation as a future professional.

To prepare students with this important tool, portfolio building is incorporated into all levels of coursework. Seniors will complete a well-crafted portfolio with photos, certificates, and other materials that will support their future success as a cosmetologist.
