OCC Cosmetology Program Now Enrolling Students for Fall Semester

Cosmetology PhotoOlney Central College’s Cosmetology Program is registering students for fall semester classes.

Students enrolled in Cosmetology participate in both classroom and clinical experiences. The program covers all facets of the industry, including hair shaping, skin care, makeup, permanent waving, shampooing, scalp treatments, hair styling and chemical hair relaxing. Pedicures, manicures, massage and shop management also are covered.

Instructor Linda Miller said the field continues to grow, creating numerous opportunities for graduates.

“The beauty industry has surged now for several years with no end in sight,” she added. “It’s a career that provides a flexible work schedule and an earning potential based on how much you want to work.”

Completion of the program qualifies students to take a state examination for registration as a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Illinois. Qualified students, who begin the program in August, will be able to complete their certificates in Summer 2019.
