The Cosmetology AAS program prepares students for job entry skills, customer communication, and shop procedures. Instruction includes professional ethics, bacteriology, shampoo and rinses, color theory, hair coloring techniques, permanent waving, hairstyling, hair cutting, manicures, pedicures, facials, makeup, OSHA regulations, sanitation, safety and Colorado laws. Clinical practice involves working on the public under supervision and parallels, as close as possible, actual shop procedures in order to prepare students for working in the field.
