What specifically does your program include? Aside from hairstyling, are there other areas of focus available?
We offer a program that includes 1,800 clock hours toward achieving an Advanced Cosmetology license. An advanced cosmetology license is a large umbrella license that allows you to practice all forms of cosmetology in Ohio. We focus on teaching not just amazing technical skills, but training you to be an entrepreneur. A successful beauty consultant is more than just artistic; they are business-savvy as well!
Our 1,800 clock hour program covers all elements of cosmetology, as well as a 300 clock hour business portion that focuses on salon management and additional advanced techniques. Our full Advanced Cosmetology Program includes hair cutting, coloring and styling; skin care, facials, waxing, regular make up and a 6-week airbrush make up class (each student receives a Temptu Pro airbrush make up compressor in his or her kit of tools); nail tech courses (manicures, pedicures, nail art, gel lacquer and acrylics); and the business program I mentioned before. This program is designed to be completed in 13.5 months (54 weeks).
We train our students in TIGI cutting and coloring techniques. We use TIGI makeup and Temptu Pro airbrush make up and BioElements for our skincare curriculum. Our graduates go on to work as salon owners, stylists, make-up artists, educators and nail techs.
Do you want to focus on one aspect of cosmetology?

It’s awesome to find a niche specialty where you can show off your best skills. Salon Institute’s Advanced Cosmetology Program gives students a well-rounded education so that you can confidently choose if and how you want to specialize … and then have the option to change direction or specialty later.
