Vocational
Cosmetology

Cosmetology is the field of beauty treatment, and includes hair, nail, and skin care, cosmetics and electrology services.

Students of cosmetology will gain education and training at a cosmetology or vocational school, which can lead to an Associate's degree. Typical schooling takes nine months to a year to complete, and every state in the U.S. requires a cosmetologist to be licensed. Requirements for licensure can include a high school diploma or GED, a minimum age, graduation from a licensed school and then passing an exam.

Students will take courses related to their field, such as hair cutting and shaping, skin care or manicures/pedicures. In general students will be required to take classes on their state laws for cosmetology, sanitation and sterilization, AIDS awareness and salon management.

Cosmetologists can have rewarding and interesting careers. Graduates can work in a hair salon or barber shop, or be employed at a day spa, hotel or resort. In addition to shampooing, cutting and coloring hair, cosmetologists may give manicures or pedicures, facials, head and neck massages, or skin care treatments.
