DESCRIPTION

Theory and practical experiences prepare students for the Maryland State Board of Cosmetology practical and written examinations needed to become a licensed cosmetologist.  A college level textbook and four experienced cosmetologists along with a fully equipped salon allow students to earn the 1500 hours needed to sit for the exam.  Senior students work with clients anywhere from one to four hours and are able to perform all the services one would find at a real salon.   This is as close to a real experience that students can get before they are licensed.
