We know an education in the cosmetology industry is important to you. That’s why we focus on making your education rigorous, but fun. It’s important that our students learn the art of hair design, safety, sanitation, and how to develop careers in cosmetology. We offer academic, lab, and hands-on training in hair design, esthetics, nail technology, and barbering in fun and hip environments in key areas of Portland, Oregon.
You can learn some of the latest techniques on the latest equipment and you can be proud of where you are getting your education for a career in the beauty industry. Best of all, your hands-on education will take place in one of our beautiful student-staffed Portland hair salons.
All courses (except Cadet) each contain the required units of 100 hours of Career Development and 150 hours of Safety and Sanitation. If you have already completed one or more of the courses and want to return to complete another subject, you must complete at least the following hours, plus have an evaluation of your prior hours to credit to the career Developments And Safety & Sanitation requirements:
