Turn some heads! Are you always getting compliments on your own style and fashion sense? Why not turn what you love into a career?
A student who successfully completes 1500 clock hours of work in TCD’s state-licensed School of Cosmetology and passes the practical exam will be awarded a certificate from TCD and qualify to take the Illinois State License Exam.
What will my classes be like?
Step behind a stylist’s chair in the Technology Center of DuPage “Salon 301,” and develop your skills in cuts, colors, perms, nail technology, esthetics, and make-up application. Through practice and instructor demonstrations, you will learn professional-level techniques.
There is a serious side to all this glamour! You will be amazed to learn how chemistry, anatomy, and geometry are used every day by cosmetology professionals.
Apply your skills through TCD’s full-service salon, industry internships, or community projects (theatrical productions, fashion shows, and community service events).
It is possible to earn up to 46 hours of college credit through this program. After graduation, use that great head start to obtain an associate’s degree, adding even greater value to your state license.
