Cosmetology

You're creative. You like people. Being on the cutting edge is your idea of fun. And, you think you might like to be your own boss someday. Welcome to the beauty and fashion industry.

The Cosmetology program will prepare you to work as a cosmetologist, hairstylists, and manicurist. You'll gain the skills to provide beauty services such as shampooing, cutting, coloring, styling, manicures, and pedicures in our on-site salon. This program will also prepare you to pass the state-licensing exam given by the Colorado Barber/Cosmetology Board.
