ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Cosmetology is a promising field for people who want to go into business for themselves.  It is also a creative field where the work takes place in pleasant surroundings and in close contact with people.  At Minuteman, cosmetology students earn 1000 hours of instruction necessary to qualify to take the state licensing examination for employment as a cosmetologist in the state of Massachusetts.  Students majoring in cosmetology must have controlled finger dexterity and the ability to do precise work.  Good human relations skills are also very important.  Students will receive their OSHA 10-hour certification (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and a CPR, AED, and First Aid Certification.
