There are exciting new career opportunities for cosmetologists, and the outlook for a career in hair design and cosmetology remains fantastic! Skincare, spa treatments, and nail care are some of the hottest specialty areas in salons today. Students in the Cosmetology program gain skills in complete hair care, including styles, cuts, color, and chemical texture services; facial/skin care; and nail care. Cosmetology students are provided hands-on experiences as well as theory training and, upon completion of requirements, students are qualified to take the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology Exam at the end of their senior year. Once licensed, students may participate in early placement.
