This 77-week Diploma program prepares students with the knowledge and skills necessary to work either as professional estheticians in today’s high-demand wellness industry where they gain leading-edge skills in nail care, hair removal, skin care, and body treatments, or as hair stylists, where the training emphasizes a strong theory and practical component in cutting, styling, permanent waving, chemical hair relaxing, and coloring and lightening hair.

Hairdressing students also gain knowledge and skills in hair addition service as well as salon operations. Students demonstrate and practice these techniques in our fully functional salon, developing individualized styling options, prescribing products, and performing safe and hygienic practices on clients.
