A Cut Above the Rest!

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!


While studying cosmetology at GCI, students will actively engage with the most up-to-date technology available. Most of our curricula run on Pivot Point’s LAB platform, permitting students to complete theory assignments, program tasks, and benchmark tests with confidence and efficiency.

  • What I loved most was the hands-on learning: learning in a professional salon atmosphere that I received during my tenure. The education department equipped me for a successful future, and also encouraged me to always reach out for guidance as needed once I was in the field.

    I graduated in June and was licensed as of July and I can say this is one of the best experiences so far. In school I took my career serious and knew I wanted to waste no time on getting started so I took extra courses while I was in school and literally had my own suite 3 months before I finished school. Fast forward to today I’m currently at Trends Style Studio where I specialize in body waxing, skincare and body sculpting. I’m always taking extra courses to enhance my knowledge and add to my services. Thank you again Gci, this year I’m planning on opening my own location in Murfreesboro, Tn
