The complete Cosmetology and Hairstyling Course consists of 1200 clock hours as prescribed by the New Jersey State Board of Cosmetology & Hairstyling. The educational objective of the complete cosmetology curriculum is to provide the student with sufficient training to pass the State Board Exam, become properly licensed and perform duties required under such license to secure employment at an entry level. A cosmetologist/hairstylist license allows an individual to practice all phases of cosmetology.
During the first 600 hours students are defined as an underclassmen (Freshman and Juniors). During this interval your work will consist of lectures, demonstrations, practicing on mannequins and written/practical examinations.

The remaining 600 hours will consist of class projects, additional lectures, salon management and honing your skills in the Senior Clinic. The Senior Clinic patrons pay a reduced fee for services performed by students. As a Senior student you will perform services on clients building your self-esteem and knowledge.
