According to the Massachusetts Department of Labor, job opportunities for hairdressers and cosmetologists in the commonwealth are expected to increase by almost 25 percent between 2012 and 2022. This is great news if you wish to become a cosmetologist in Massachusetts. If you are at least 17 years old and have, at minimum, a 10th grade education, you may pursue a cosmetology license in Massachusetts.

The Cosmetology program provides students with the opportunity to become licensed cosmetologists. This involves training in current theory and extensive practical training. Instruction includes all phases of cosmetic care including shampooing techniques, hair shaping, hair coloring, permanent waving, roller sets, relaxers, facials, scalp treatments, manicuring, and make up.

In our active, on-site cosmetology laboratory, the students gain skills in the use of sanitation, products, equipment, and safety practices through demonstration, example, and supervision. Students also learn about sciences related to the field as well as develop business practices necessary to work in, manage, and own a salon. Upon successful course completion, which includes the required 1,000 instructional cosmetology hours, students are qualified to take the State Cosmetology Board examination for licensing.
