The Cosmetology careers program prepares individuals to care for and beautify hair, nails, and skin. Hair techniques taught include giving shampoos, rinses, scalp treatments, styling, setting, cutting, hair coloring and lightening, permanent waving, and relaxing. Skin techniques include facials and make-up applications, while nail techniques include manicures, pedicures, artificial nail techniques, and hand and arm massages. Emphasis is placed on hygiene and sanitation, decontamination, and infection control. Related areas of instruction include bones, muscles, nerves, chemistry, electricity, computer imaging, product knowledge, customer relations, and salon management. Students may further their education and acquire more practical experience by working in a private salon or enrolling in a business management program at the community college level. Fifteen hundred hours of instruction qualifies the student for an operator’s licensing examination in Maryland in the senior year of high school. Students are expected to officially apply for and sit for the State of Maryland Board of Cosmetologists’ license examination prior to graduation.

 Students may earn a minimum of four MSDE Career & Technology (CTE) credits for graduation.
