The Cosmetology program is a three-year commitment for students pursuing the 1,500 hours of instruction required by the state of Michigan to earn a cosmetology license. Students must enroll in the program as juniors and complete an application process to continue into their second and third years. Tuition is required to complete the third year. While in high school, students will concentrate on theory and practice hands-on skills utilizing mannequins and each other. After high school, students continue theory and practical work as well as operate A Touch of Class Salon where they experience real-life salon situations. After completion of State requirements, students may apply to take the Michigan Cosmetology State Board Examination, and upon passing the assessment, will be licensed Cosmetologists.
