Our Curriculum

Professional's Choice combines traditional required subjects with modern, audio-visual programs to ensure that all students are fully prepared upon graduation for the licensing exam and their chosen careers.

We offer two curriculum: Cosmetologist and Instructor. The course formats consist of lecture with discussion, practical experience, observation, and written and practical evaluation.

The Cosmetologist Curriculum

The Instructor Curriculum
Professional's Choice Hair Design Academy is approved to offer two cosmetology instructor programs - 1000 hour program and 500 hour program. The 1000 hour program is designed for those people who are right out of beauty school with no salon experience or those that have been out of the salon for a number of years. The 500 hour program is designed for those people who have currently worked in a salon during the past two years.
