Natural Hairstyling is the main New York State certification students are prepared for. Students also study nails, hair, skin, and their related care. Students are grounded in theory before practicing procedures in a lab setting, using mannequins and live models for manipulative skill practice.
Particular attention is paid to learning to manicure, pedicure, install and maintain artificial nails, and apply concepts associated with bacteriology, sanitation, nail disorders, anatomy and physiology, and safety.
Students must also take Business and Finance courses to build entrepreneurship and management skills. Our Partnership with Bank of America supports the financial literacy of our students. NYS Certification enables them to open their own business or work in a beauty salon.
