Xenon Academy’s Cosmetology Program can empower you to help your clients express themselves while you build the beauty career of your dreams.
Course of Study
If you have a passion for beauty and making others feel amazing, then cosmetology could be a great way to express your creativity! In our 1800-hour cosmetology course, you can gain an in-depth understanding of the cosmetology industry through our program’s five distinct phases. At Xenon Academy, you can experience the professional salon industry first-hand through interactions with industry speakers, salon experts and career fairs.
With so many different career options available in the cosmetology world, it all depends on you and what aspect of beauty you’re most passionate about. If learning cosmetology has been your dream, we don’t want anything holding you back! Our cosmetology course offers scheduling options to help you fit in your passion when it works best for you. Our program also allows students to earn hours in an externship program that gives you first hand experience in a salon or spa while still in training.
The cosmetology training at Xenon Academy begins with the fundamentals and works upward to help you gain skills that can be necessary for a future career in beauty! Our students begin by learning in a classroom setting to prepare them to practice what they’ve learned on guests in our student salon and spa under the supervision of licensed professionals. Here are a few of the things students can generally expect to learn during their time in our cosmetology course:
- Hair Sculpture
- Creative Color Placement
- Texture Services
- Hair Design
- Skin Care Techniques
- Makeup & Lashes
- Guest Service Training
- Salon and Social Media Marketing
- Income Strategies
Each of these topics together, in addition with many more, are designed to help our graduates become well-rounded professionals that are ready to go out and build successful careers!
At Xenon Academy, we understand that enrolling in beauty school can be an investment in yourself. That’s why we offer a variety of financial aid options to students who qualify. From both unsubsidized and subsidized loans to Pell grants, we want to provide a way for our students to study what they love with us. If you want to learn more about our financial aid options, then contact us to find out how you can get started with the financial aid process.
The Business Side of Beauty
Our cosmetology course can provide the ideal balance of education and experience, giving you the opportunity to refine your skills. Not only can you gain experience with managing clients in our student salon, but you can also receive instruction on the business side of being a beauty professional. For some cosmetologists it makes managing happy clients easier, and for others it can give them the foundation they need to open a salon, or spa of their own! Our program includes weekly business classes that are designed to prepare you to build your business and even increase your income potential.
