Cosmetology Program

Hands-on experience is the key element to the success of the SCCTC Human Services program. Our students learn about their chosen profession first hand in exciting, real life work environments. From dealing with clients, to managing basic accounting, to perfecting styling skills and techniques, this broad based curriculum gives our graduates the experience they need to get off to a strong start.

Are you creative? Do you like to work with people? You may want to consider the opportunities the Cosmetology Program has for you. By providing the public with a well groomed appearance, you help everyone put their best foot forward.

Students develop skills through hands-on practice as well as textbook instruction that is required by the National Skills Standards. At the end of their senior year, students will take the Ohio State Board ofCosmetology Exam to receive their license.

After Graduation
Successful Cosmetology students find employment right out of high school. As many of our former students have found, diversified employment opportunities are available.


The following facts are from the National Accrediting Council of Cosmetology Arts & Science (NACCAS):

  •  The average income for a salon professional in Ohio and in America today is $30,000 to $50,000 per year. The exciting news is that salon earning power keeps improving.
  •  Today, the growing salon industry offers a dramatically unique zero unemployment factor, needing many more new salon professionals than we can supply. The salon industry remains the job seeker’s market!
