Our Cosmetology Schools Top Priorities
Students must successfully graduate from an accredited training program. Education includes coursework and practical training under the supervision of licensed instructors. Each state requires a minimum number of hours of training, which usually takes about nine months of full-time studies to complete. Students then must pass an exam administered by the training program in order to prepare for the state board’s licensing exam.
Each state’s Board of Cosmetology requires submitting an application and passing practical and written exams to obtain a license to practice professionally. Some states require different exams to be licensed as a barber, hair dresser, manicurist, pedicurist or skin care specialist. Licenses also must be renewed after a specific time frame.
After completion of a state-approved educational program and obtaining a license, a variety of careers are available. The need for barbers, hair dressers, manicurists, pedicurists and skin care specialists are expected to increase by more than 15 percent between 2010 and 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
