Cosmetology

Description

The Cosmetology profession has endless opportunities. The MVCTC Cosmetology program teaches the basics of the profession. This is a program mandated by the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology. The goal of the lab is to prepare students for the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology Exam, which is taken at the end of their senior year. After passing this exam, students will receive their Cosmetology license to work in this career.

The Cosmetology program will give students knowledge in hair styling, braiding, scalp treatments, manicuring, pedicuring, permanent waving, chemical hair services, hair coloring, and facial treatments. In the state-of-the-art Cosmetology lab, students learn beauty salon management skills and work in a real salon environment. Cosmetology students also are given the opportunity to learn the theory behind several of the salon processes by taking program-related academic classes in science. Students complete other various creative projects and participate in competitions.

After receiving their Cosmetology license, students have the ability to work in salons, day spas, nail salons, cruise ships, become salon owners and make-up artists. All academic classes and Cosmetology classes must be passed before taking the exam.
