This program is designed to prepare students for professional licensing in the cosmetology field. Students are taught the basic techniques of hair care, chemical relaxing, professional ethics, sanitation, manicuring, facials, salon management, and rules and regulations as designated by the state.

The Arkansas State Health Department Cosmetology Division requires an individual to successfully complete 1500 clock hours in order to qualify for the state cosmetology licensing examination. In addition to admission requirements for this program, a student must submit a copy of their social security number, drivers license, copy of high school transcript or proof of GED, and a $20 money order made payable to the Arkansas Board of Cosmetology for a temporary training permit.
