Our Cosmetology program consists of 1500 hours of instruction that is more than just state board preparedness. This exciting program assures that aspiring cosmetologists gain proficiency in the following areas:
Hair Care – including: Coloring, Cutting, Chemical Texturing (e.g. permanent waving)
Nail Care – including: manicures and pedicures
Skin Care – including: facial and skin care trends, traditional methods, and product usage
Hands-on training is an integral part of the Cosmetology curriculum, and students will work alongside, and even on their fellow classmates in school clinics. The GCI team offers guidance and training every step of the way, prompting students to discover their inner creativity, their passion, and their love for the field via collaborative trainings.
Once a reasonable level of proficiency is achieved, students will also be offered the chance to utilize their skills through GCI’s extensive salon services, catering to real-world clients in the process. During this senior phase of the program, a student has the opportunity to begin developing their own ‘book’ of clients forging a relationship beyond graduation and licensing.
Ultimately, a cosmetology license creates many possible and sustainable career opportunities. GCI is proud to set the bar high for its students, paving their pathway to success!
