Cosmetology Instructor

*This program is not being offered at this time. Are you a passionate stylist who loves teaching others? If so, our Teacher Training program may be the perfect opportunity for you. As an instructor and a professional, you’ll be responsible for shaping the future of the beauty world and guiding emerging artists. Our areas of emphasis include how to teach theory, evaluating student performance and examinations, preparing students to pass the cosmetology state board examination, and much more.


Our Teachers—we call them Learning Leaders—are experienced professionals who guide our students through three levels—CORE, ADAPTIVE, and CREATIVE—while they hone their skills and develop their unique artistic vision. Learning Leaders are the heart of our program, responsible for helping students build a core foundation of knowledge and ultimately master more advanced techniques. They are more than teachers—they are dedicated mentors who work hard to prepare their students for the professional world outside the classroom doors.


One of the most exciting days for our Future Professionals is the day they get to unwrap their very own professional kit. It’s packed with all the essentials—hot styling tools, mannequin heads, scissors and clips, and much more—so you’re ready to succeed in school and launch your dream career.
