High School Cosmetology Classes Offer Quick Certification

Cosmetology classes are typically taken over a period of at least 2-years at a technical school, academy, or college.

Some high school students are putting in the work early, however; school districts offering 2-year dual enrollment programs allow juniors and seniors to prep for certification right out of high school.

Dual enrollment classes are traditionally linked to the foundational courses that students must take when they first enter into a four-year college program; mathematics, English, and science courses are the most common dual enrollment classes at high schools. These types of classes, usually taken during junior and senior years of high school, are more challenging and contain elements of their college counterparts; allowing students to earn both high school and college credits simultaneously.

Some of the students attending Marshall High School in Texas are getting a sweet deal when it comes to college credits like these because their cosmetology classes are earning them college credits, too. The school has made it possible for their students to fulfill the basic certification requirements for hair technicians in the state by the time they graduate with their high school diplomas.

The students spend two years in cosmetology classes. The first year is 100 hours studying the world of cosmetology – just like they would in college. Their second year, which must include real-world salon work and practical application of what they have learned, is possible thanks to the brand-new “Maverick Salon” that opened up for business just last month.

Their hours in the salon will allow them to complete the rest of their classes with a supervisory instructor helping them hone their skills as they work with real clients. At the end of the cosmetology class program, and upon their high school graduation, the students can take the state certification test as a hair stylist or transfer their credits into a college program where they will learn more on topics for estheticians and cosmetologists.
