If you love to work with people and enjoy a fast paced environment where you can be creative every day, Cosmetology might be for you! Whether you want a career in Cosmetology or a stepping stone to another career field, this is a great program.

One of the greatest benefits of studying Cosmetology at the Wilson Talent Center (WTC) is that upon completion of the program, you are ready to take the State of Michigan Board of Cosmetology Licensing exam. After passing, you will be a licensed cosmetologist in the State of Michigan, without spending $20,000+ to do this after high school.

You will be exposed to all areas of cosmetology, including haircutting, hair coloring, manicuring, pedicuring, facials and much more. Once you achieve 350 hours of instruction, you are qualified to work on clients in Extreme Image, the school's on-site salon.

This two-year program (half a day both your junior and senior years of high school) also requires extended hours and includes school on Saturday's. Students must be able to provide their own transportation due to the extended hours and cannot rely on home school busing.
