Cosmetology School Curriculum

What does the curriculum include at The Hair Design School?

Beauty school curriculums will vary by state and then again by the specific school. These variances are due to state requirements for program completion and school resources. There are some common programs in beauty schools, such as a comprehensive cosmetology curriculum, but the outline and delivery may differ. Additional programs such as nail care, barbering, makeup artistry, and esthetics, along with the credit hours needed to graduate are other differences defined by state law. It’s important to contact your state licensing board for curriculum requirements for your state before you enroll in any beauty school.

At The Hair Design Schools, you can choose from one or more of these in-depth programs:

The Hair Design School curriculum includes classroom training featuring modern technology for a visual learning experience, hands-on practice in a real salon setting, product knowledge and sales training.
