Cosmetology Apprenticeship Program

In December 2018, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Board of Cosmetology and Barbering approved a 1000 Hour Cosmetology Paid Apprenticeship Program.  The Program contains the same curriculum as the Cosmetology program, the difference is you are in school for a minimum of 600 hours and working in an approved Apprentice Salon for 400 hours instead of being in the school’s student clinic. The curriculum is as follows:

Subjects for Cosmetology Program
Manicure Hair Straightening and Permanent Waving
Finger Waving
Skin Care/Make-up/Facial Grooming
Wig Instruction and Scalp Treatment
Coloring – Dyes and Bleaching
Oral, Written, and Practical Tests: Sterilization, Hygiene, and Anatomy
Ethics, Salesmanship, Courtesy, and Conduct
Instruction and Lecture on Sanitation
Marcelling and all Iron Curls
