COSMETOLOGY OPERATOR COURSE- 1500 CLOCK HOURS—The Cosmetology course utilizes the most comprehensive, up-to-date principles of teaching cosmetology. It offers a step-by-step, practical development of the subject matter to help lay the foundation for a better understanding of the nature of hair and skin as protein substances and the products used in professional beauty culture work. The cosmetology course of study is designed to prepare students for the state licensing examination and employment. The knowledge and skills will help prepare our graduating students to keep pace with the new techniques which are developed and to prepare the student for work as a hair designer, salon manager, hair colorist, salon owner, product demonstrator, etc. The jobs are endless in this fast, pace growing industry!
MANICURIST COURSE- 600 CLOCK HOURS—The manicuring business is more popular today than it has ever been. Many states have a separate license for Manicurists. Manicuring became a “big business” with the introduction of new products and services to strengthen and beautify the fingernails and, in some cases, the toenails. Nail wrapping and the application of artificial nails have been added to the service offered in beauty salons and also in some barber salons.
ESTHETICIAN COURSE- 750 CLOCK HOURS—In recent years there has been a growing demand for skin care and makeup services. Some of these services require a cosmetology license, while others require a specialized training certification. Knowledge of cosmetology and specializing study of beauty culture, is essential for a career specializing in aesthetics. The Facial Course, while dealing with many of the same scientific subjects, concentrates on the health care and attractiveness of the skin and on the artistic use of cosmetics.
INSTRUCTOR COURSE- 750 CLOCK HOURS—We believe that it takes more than good students and an advanced curriculum to produce an effective, progressive cosmetology school. It also requires well informed, highly skilled educators in the field of cosmetology. The key to achieving this goal is providing teachers with the proper educational support. The fundamental role of an educator is to create an environment for effective teaching and learning. An effective cosmetology educator engages students in learning experiences that are up-to-date, accurate, and based on professional procedures used in the field of cosmetology. The challenge of cosmetology teaching is to creatively adapt both to changing techniques in the field and to the diversity of learning needs in the classroom.
SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONING COURSE*- 150 HOURS—Shampooing cleanses the scalp and hair of dust, hair spray, sebum (oil), and other residue. How often the hair is shampooed depends on the hairstyle and its appearance. It also depends on how much oil is secreted from the client’s scalp on to the hair. While many clients will have their hair shampooed daily, others will wait a few days or perhaps even a week. Because shampooing is a vital preliminary step for many services, it is performed frequently in the school or salon. Clients enjoy this service because effective shampooing manipulations relax the body and are good for the hair and scalp. *OFFERED IN UCAS MCALLEN, HARLINGEN AND LA JOYA CAMPUSES; NOT OFFERED IN SAN ANTONIO NACO PERRIN & JAMAR CAMPUSES.
