About Our Programs

Our Barber, Cosmetologist (hair / skin / nail care), Esthetician (skin care), and Manicurist (nail care) certificate programs meet California State Board of Barbering & Cosmetology requirements for licensure and are designed to give students a foundation in the beauty industry. Our crossover certificate programs are designed to help working beauty professionals qualify for an additional license.

New cohorts for certificate programs start five times per year for daytime and evening classes.

Unless otherwise noted, textbooks, course supplies, and required uniform tops are included in the course fees for each level. Students are required to provide their own black pants or skirts and black closed-toed shoes that meet the salon's dress code.

With the exception of Related Science Health & Safety, all of our programs are conducted IN-PERSON ONLY.

How to Enroll


Before students can start any of the core classes, they must complete Related Science Health & Safety. This prerequisite is a week-long, self-paced ONLINE course conducted via Google Classroom that runs the week before core class sessions begin. 

To enroll, you simply register for the Level 1 class of your choosing (Barber, Cosmetologist, Esthetician, or Manicurist). The $55 fee for the Related Science Health & Safety prerequisite is included in Level 1 core class tuition.

The fee structure for Level 1 core classes is as follows: 

If you do not complete Related Science Health & Safety, you will not move on to Level 1.



Once you have successfully completed Related Science Health & Safety, you will begin training in your chosen field of study (Barber, Cosmetologist, Esthetician, Manicurist). Each program varies in hour requirements.
