Instructor: Lindsay Wood

Students study hair, skin and nails and their related care.  Students are grounded in theory as they prepare to practice procedures in a clinical lab setting or classroom, using manikins for manipulative skill practice.  The first-year course emphasizes personal safety, professionalism, sanitation and disinfection of equipment and facilities.  Students develop skills in shampooing and conditioning hair, as well as styling and cutting hair.  They are introduced to chemical texture services and develop skills in manicure and pedicure procedures.  In the second year, students are provided an advanced study of the experiences received during the first year with further emphasis on development, perfection and speed of various hairstyling application skills.  Students are expected to perform services for clients in the cosmetology lab under the supervision of the instructor as well as other assigned tasks.
