Cosmetology allows students to potentially be a licensed cosmetologist by the time they graduate high school. This opportunity propels students into the workforce or allows them to work during college at something they love. All of this after learning professional hair cutting and styling, facial and nail treatments, make-up techniques and more during their time in the program. During the senior year, Apollo cosmetology students begin patron service in their very own salon on campus and are prepared to take the state test in March! This hands-on experience enables students to practice as a cosmetologist after high school, work as a make-up artist or even one day own or manage their own salon.
