Hair Design Program
1,200 clock hours

Are you all about hair? You love the feel of it, the way you can mold it and shape it to create your vision, an outword expression of your inner creativity. You’re the one friends come to for a new style or color, to try the latest Pinterest hair trend … but you could care less about any other aspect of the industry? The 1,200 clock hour Hair Design Program could be the fit for you!

The Hair Designer course of study consists of 1,200 clock hours (approximately 35 weeks) of instruction covering all phases of cosmetology except nails and skin — no manicures, no pedicures, no facials, no waxing, and no make up. The course is designed to prepare students to pass the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology “Hair Design” licensing examination and to help the student obtain the knowledge and skills needed to begin a career in the hair fashion industry.
