This course is for students who wish to pursue a career in the field of Cosmetology. Cosmetology consists of haircutting, hair coloring, shampooing, styling, arranging hair, manicures, pedicures, hair removal, scalp treatments, chemical texture services (perms and relaxers), disinfection procedures and many other services. Students are required to have a specific amount of hours in each of the subjects required by the MO State Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners. This program is offered to secondary and post-secondary students through an interview process. Students are required to have a student license issued by the MO State Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners prior to the beginning of school. This process takes at least 2 weeks after paperwork is submitted to the Cosmetology instructor and then to the Board office.

A school kit is required for each student and includes all of the tools and books needed for the course. The cost of the kit is $700.00 and will be broken down in to several payments. A payment of $250.00 will be due before the first day of class your Junior year, a $250.00 payment due before your Senior year and the balance of $200.00 will be due before your graduation date. Hours will be the same as the rest of HCC depending on whether you are a morning or afternoon student and students will attend class Monday-Friday.

Once a student has acquired 160 hours they will be allowed to work on actual clients in the salon. The Cosmetology school is open to the public and clients come to the school to have students perform services on them.

Once students’ requirements have been fulfilled, students will be required to take a written State Board exam and a practical State Board exam. Once both exams have been taken and passed, the student will be issued a CA Cosmetology License.
