About Cosmetology (C.C.)
The mission of the Cosmetology Career Certificate (C.C.) program is to provide excellent and meaningful education to all cosmetology students. The Cosmetology program has cosmetology instructors who believe in a team approach that is flexible and understanding of the individual needs which enables each student to reach their full potential and the achievement of success. A theoretical and practical hands-on approach is given to all aspects of cosmetology including, but not limited to, hair design, chemical relaxing, permanent waving, hair coloring, skin care and nail care. This will not only prepare the cosmetology student for the state licensure examination but will also prepare them for successful entry into the workforce.
Cosmetology students provide client services as part of the program curriculum. All services are completed by the students under the supervision of an instructor who is also a licensed cosmetologist. Appointments can be scheduled by calling (904) 766-5566.
