Cosmetology (1500 hours of classroom and clinic workshop)

Our goal is to prepare YOU for a rewarding career in the art and science of cosmetology!

Star Beauty School LLC uses Milady textbooks and teaching methods to fully prepare all of our students to excel in the cosmetology field.

Programs are given in a continuing cycle so a prospective student can enroll at any time.

Program Outline
Course Description and Goals

The program is a 1500-hour program for Virginia, consisting of training in such topics as haircutting, styling, permanent waving, highlights, coloring, and scalp treatments. The program also provides guidance in job opportunities, seeking and obtaining employment and laws and regulations governing salon operation. Instruction is designed to prepare future cosmetologists for the state licensing examination and employment upon graduation.

It is further designed to help students develop desirable work habits, attitude and awareness of their professional responsibilities. Safety practices, ethics, as well as business and legal aspects of salon operations also form an integral part of the student’s training.
All our graduates have opportunities to be professional cosmetologists, salon managers, salon owners, and instructors.

Course Format
Course outlines and daily lesson plans ensure that all subjects are taught in correct sequence with a proper balance devoted to theory, practical, and clinical instruction. Lectures, demonstration, slides, films, mannequin and live model practice will be used to present information.

Students will begin their training in the basic level and are promoted from there to intermediate and senior levels. The basic segment consists of theory and practical instruction, as well as supervised mannequin practice. Evaluations are given approximately every eight weeks. Students satisfactorily completing the basic segment are promoted to the intermediate segment and are permitted to serve clinical patrons under instructors’ supervision. During the intermediate segment, approximately 60% of the student’s time is spent in theory and practical classes, while the additional time is spent in supervised clinical practice.

Satisfactory completion of the intermediate segment allows promotion to the senior level. In this segment, students attend regularly scheduled morning theory classes and are individually scheduled for senior classes as well as live model practice. As student hours accumulate, more time is spent in supervised live model practice in the clinic, developing the communication and technical skills needed for success. Although the clinic is not a traditional classroom setting, it is a classroom and each customer is an individual class.

Course Progression
Students begin their training in the basic level and are promoted from there. The basic segment consists of theory and practical instruction, including supervised mannequin practice. Evaluations are given approximately every eight weeks. Students satisfactorily completing the basic segment are promoted to the intermediate segment and are permitted to serve clinical patrons under instructors supervision.

At the senior level, students accumulate more time in supervised live model practice in the clinic developing the communication and technical skills needed for success. Although the clinic is not a traditional classroom setting, students learn much from each encounter with a new client.

A full-time student takes 9 months to complete the course. A part time student may take as much as a year or more. Students must maintain an 80% attendance rate to complete the program and a grade average of 75% or better.

The required 1500 hours of training is divided into these categories:

  • 940 hours of practical application
  • 560 hundred hours of classroom theory
