The cosmetologist’s role in society is growing. Opportunities in the field expand every year as professional beauty care has become a must for the person who wants to be well groomed. Interesting work, financial security, and personal satisfaction can be found in a career as a cosmetologist. Students learn to cut and style hair, and give permanent waves and tints. They become experts in the treatment of scalp and skin care. They learn to give manicures, shape eyebrows, and provide individual make-up analysis. They become proficient in the field of wig styling and the use of hair pieces.
All states require cosmetologists to be licensed by law. After satisfactory completion of 1200 credit unit hours of training, the students are eligible to take the Alabama State Board examination. Day classes meet Monday through Thursday, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., for 3 semesters. Night classes meet Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., for 6 semesters.
COSMETOLOGY INSTRUCTOR TRAINING
Success in teaching depends upon many factors. One of them, which greatly influences success or failure, is the teacher’s relation with students. Cosmetology teachers not only must be highly trained and skilled in the practice of beauty culture, but must be able to develop and maintain good relations with students.
The Cosmetology Student Instructor Program provides an understanding of the different methods of teaching, procedures used in making lesson plans, and designing visual aids to be used in practice teaching. Must have managing cosmetology license and five years of in-field experience.
