The Cosmetology Program’s mission is to provide the necessary training in theory and clinical knowledge for the student to be successful with the cosmetology industry. Instruction is designed to qualify students for employment upon graduation and to aid in the passing of the State Board of Cosmetology Licensing Exam, which consists of a written test and practical test. Licensing is required for individuals to be employed as cosmetologists in the State of Tennessee.

Classroom instruction and practical learning experiences are interwoven into a variety of beauty treatments, including the care and beautification of hair, complexion, and hands. The course of study includes hands-on and classroom instruction in all areas of styling, cutting, chemical services, nail care, makeup, and all safety/sanitary guidelines enforced by the state board. For entrance into the program, a student must provide an official high school or GED transcript. Schedule: Day class Mon-Fri 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM, Night class Mon - Thur 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM
