The Cosmetology course at SUN Tech includes theoretical studies and the application of all aspects of hair, skin and nail care.  You will be trained in the theoretical areas of anatomy/physiology, decontamination, safety and management.  Eighty percent of all course activities are hands-on applications including the operation of a clinic/salon area where you will work on clients just as you would in a licensed salon.  The topics and skills covered include hairstyling, hair cutting, hair coloring and lightening, permanent waving, hair straightening, braiding, skin care, massage, makeup, hair removal, nail care, artificial nails, nail art, ethnic hair care, male hair cutting and styling and product knowledge.

In order to acquire the 1250 hours of supervised instruction required for the PA State Board of Cosmetology licensing examination, you will attend a 300 hour summer program at SUN Tech prior to your senior year at SUN Tech.
