Summer/Fall 2019 Offerings
At our beauty school in San Diego, we offer five courses at present – barbering, cosmetology, esthetician, manicuring and massage therapy. To learn more about each read below. To download our school catalog, click here.
The term cosmetology refers to the professional practice of beautifying the face, hair and skin. A cosmetologist differs from an esthetician in that cosmetologists can perform beauty procedures pertaining to the hair, skin and nails. Estheticians, on the other hand, work on the skincare aspect only.
Our cosmetology program is 1600 hours long, making it our longest available course. After finishing the course, you will be familiar with most beauty procedures. The course covers subjects such as hair styling, coloring, cutting, health and safety considerations, anatomy, sanitation and safety, various facials, eyebrow beautification, nail treatments, and salon management – among others.
The tuition cost is $11,250 and books and supplies cost $675. To learn more you can download our school catalog. The course curriculum can be found on page 12.
This course has a total length of 1500 hours, and it will teach you how to cut, color and shave hair. You will learn various hair cutting techniques and styles, and the best way to do them. It’s one of our longer programs because it’ll also cover the basics of owning a business – like pricing, business management, etc. If you’re new to the beauty industry, learning the basics is essential.
The course curriculum includes hair styling (hair analysis, shampooing, curling etc.), permanent waving and chemical straightening, hair coloring and bleaching, hair cutting, shaving (preparation, assessing skin, shaving, aftershave application, massaging), professionalism, laws, health considerations, anatomy, and sanitation.
The tuition cost is $6,000 and books and supplies cost $650. To learn more you can download our school catalog. The course curriculum for barbering can be found on page 22.
Estheticians are in high demand today. The profession is an important one as estheticians work in the skincare area, and can specialize in skin treatments and hair removal methods that others (makeup artists, cosmetologists, etc.) are not permitted to practice. The course is a very interesting one, and will train you on how to perform procedures in a professional manner. It does not include business basics.
The esthetician course is 600 hours long and will cover subjects such as preparation, facials, eyebrows, laws and regulations, health and safety, sanitation, anatomy and physiology, makeup, and some others. Since you will be learning how to perform advanced hair removal and skincare treatments, the focus will be heavily on health and safety and other regulations to ensure you are in compliance with U.S. laws.
The tuition cost is $3,200 and books and supplies cost $575. To learn more you can download our school catalog. The course curriculum can be found on page 15.
Manicures and nail art are always in demand because nails play an important role in the beauty industry. Furthermore, nail trends change rather faster than others, so the industry is a very dynamic one. If you’re interested in becoming a nail artist or manicurist, our manicuring course is perfect for you.
This short course will, over the course of 400 hours, teach you how to perform manicures and pedicures, use nail extensions and acrylics, repair nails and create nail designs. Some other important subjects covered in the course include professionalism, laws and regulations, health and safety considerations (safe uses of chemicals, diseases), disinfection and sanitation, bacteriology, anatomy and physiology.
The tuition cost is $1,800 and books and supplies cost $350. To learn more you can download our school catalog. The course curriculum can be found on page 17.
