The Cosmetology program is perfect for creative, artistic people who enjoy working with people. Students start with basic skills in the classroom, then advance to perfecting their skills by working with real clients in Techniques Salon & Spa on the Fond du Lac Campus; a full-service salon and spa where students provide hair, skin and nail services.

What You'll Learn

Whether it’s a trendy color service, a beautifying facial, or spa manicures and pedicures, Cosmetology students are trained with all necessary skills to provide high quality salon services. Students learn the latest techniques, hear from industry artists and attend local beauty shows.

Students are prepared to take the Wisconsin NIC Cosmetology Licensing Exam and upon graduation begin working as a cosmetologist.

Students in the Cosmetology program must have stamina to stand for long periods of time. Class attendance is crucial to student success.

Program start dates are scheduled for August and January each academic year. Classes run Monday through Friday.

Students must be accepted into the program prior to enrolling in the courses. All fees must be paid prior to program start. Class size is limited to the first 20 paid students. Early enrollment is encouraged. Students are strongly encouraged to get on the waiting list, if necessary. As class space becomes available, wait-list students are offered the spots.
