The Cosmetology course is designed to provide students with the theoretical and practical instruction required as a pre-requisite to qualify for licensure examination by the Arkansas State Board of Cosmetology. The primary purpose of the course is to train the student in the basic manipulative skills, safety judgments, proper work habits, desirable attitudes, and appreciation necessary for positions as a Cosmetologist. Students will be trained in hygiene and sanitation (80 clock hours), physiotherapy, hairdressing (1000 clock hours), manicuring (100 clock hours), aesthetics (100 clock hours), salesmanship and shop management (50 clock hours), and shop deportment (50 clock hours).
