Professional Products

Paul Mitchell products are used when teaching in the classrooms and the clinic; however we believe that the students should be exposed to many professional products found in different salons, so the Center brings in outside educators to teach special classes about their different professional product lines.

The course is 1500 clock hours. Our school is in session for 25 hours a week so it would take 15 to 16 months to complete according to your attendance. Our hours are designed to accommodate students with children and for those who need to work while in school. In addition, the school is closed on weekends and all major holidays.

How much can I earn?

The most recent NACCAS Job Demand Survey reveals that cosmetologists have dramatically increased their job earning power today. There is low unemployment due to a national shortage of licensed salon professionals.
