What will you learn?
You’ll learn as much as you want to about cosmetology. You can get the basics and get to work, or you can learn enough to be able to own your own salon. You’ll learn everything you need to have fun while you work as a barber, hairdresser, skincare specialist or nail tech.
I originally started because I love doing nails but now I really like all the areas of Cosmetology that Kirtland offers. It’s fun – it’s really not like going to school at all. You get to do something you love all day long.
The instructors stop and explain what I can do to make sure I’m doing the best I can. They really want to make sure that we’re doing what’s best for us. They make sure we’re prepared.
I work two jobs, have a family and come to school full-time but I know it will be worth it in the end.
Earn your Cosmetology certificate or degree at our brand new Kirtland Academy of Cosmetology!
We think you should just get started. You can earn your fast-track Cosmetology Certificate in just about one year! You’ll be working in a brand new, state-of-the-art, high end salon at our new Cosmetology lab in Grayling. New labs, equipment, training methods and the best instructors will have you crafting and building crazy good skills in no time.
We’re all about helping students take the path that makes the most sense and all of your classes and training can be used toward your your certificate of completion (CC) associate degree (AAS) if you decide to go for it later.
If you’d love to work in a salon, you can be certified within months. If you want to own your own salon, we offer an Associate in Applied Science Cosmetology degree that will prepare you with all the business skills and knowledge to be a savvy salon manager or owner.
If you want to become an esthetician, this is an add-on Special Certificate, but we DO offer it. It’s 16 contact hours and 10 credits. This level of training allows you to explore opportunities in spa salons, plastic surgeon and dermatology offices.
We’ll make sure you’re ready and eligible to take every exam every step of the way. The first one is a theory and practical exam. The one after that is the exam to apply for your state license. Our cosmetology state licensing exam pass rate is 100%, so come and do this with us!
Even if you already have a job or recently finished high school, you can do this! Don’t let the naysayers stop you from achieving your dreams. Cosmetologists are in demand — and let’s face it, the need for experienced cosmetologists with all the newest skills and tricks guarantees your phone will always be ringing. Let us make you a great stylist, skin tech or nail tech and watch your future unfold!
This program is for you if you:
- want to add to your natural strengths and abilities
- are interested in learning specific techniques and all the newest styles
- like the idea of creating beauty all day long and making people happy while doing it
- might consider owning a salon
- think it’s time to invest in your future!
Create the future of your dreams
Once you earn your certificate, you’ll be qualified to fill a position at a salon. You seriously will have learned everything you need to work all day at something you probably consider to be more like play!
You will be comfortable with the latest tools and techniques. We can’t wait for you to start showing everybody what you can create!
This amazing certificate will allow you to make more money, be more independent, and create a future that’s all your own.
But here’s the thing: You can’t legally work in cosmetology without learning everything you need to know so you can pass the certification test.
You won’t be able to run a salon without more education, so we’ll help you earn your associate degree as soon as you’re ready.
Dare yourself to take this exciting step!
You’ll be ready to find a job and keep it for as long as you want — or be ready to open and manage your own, successful salon!
Are you ready to make your dreams come true? We’re ready for you! Together, we can do this!
