Cosmetology

Find success in style. The Cosmetology students participate in real-world experiences by owning and operating the Hi-Point Salon on Ohio Hi-Point’s campus and hosting several Cut-A-Thons throughout the year.

Students learn about hair styling; manicures and pedicures; trends in the fashion, make-up and hair industry; and discover opportunities in the beauty field from the local salon to the big-time Hollywood stylist all in our on-site salon. Students also have the opportunity to attend a variety of conferences and study trips.

Students may earn their Ohio Board of Cosmetology license and obtain a tanning license that they can put to use while pursuing further education or career opportunities. Students in this program take part in the Ohio Hi-Point SkillsUSA Chapter.
