Are you interested in fashion and style? Do you enjoy working with people, helping them feel and look good? Cosmetology is a great career for those who want a fast-paced, energetic occupation that allows them to be creative each and every day and be at the forefront of the latest trends in hair, skin and nail care.

One of the greatest benefits of studying Cosmetology at the Career Center is that upon completion of the course, which includes 1500 hours of required training and passing a pre-state exam with 75% or higher, you are ready to take the State of Michigan Board of Cosmetology Exam. After passing, you will be a licensed Cosmetologist in the state of Michigan. Once you achieve 350 hours in the course you’re eligible to work with clients at Extreme Image, the school’s on-site salon. All work is supervised by instructors.

This two-year course is open to juniors and is located at the Capital Area Career Center in Mason, MI
