Program Description

There are legal rules and regulations in place for the practice of cosmetology (code of ethics). Ethics is described as the philosophical study of moral values, rules, and principles depicting what is right and wrong concerning proper conduct in business. Proper etiquette will ensure that your clients, coworkers and superiors will come to appreciate you and will treat you the same way. Proper professional ethics will promote your success.
Students will learn what sanitation means, and to significantly reduce the number of pathogens found on a surface. Barbering tools and other surfaces are sanitized by washing with detergents followed by the application of chemical disinfectants. Antiseptics applied on the skin are another form of sanitation.
The student will learn how to discuss the art of hair cutting, and the importance of the client consultation, identify the sections of the head as applied to hair cutting, discuss the principles of facial shape and profiles, list and define the fundamental terms used in hair cutting and demonstrate an understanding of the following: finger and shear cut, shear-over-comb cut, clipper cut, and razor cut.
This course addresses the art of arranging the hair in an appropriate style following a haircut or shampoo. Today many haircuts require minimal hair style techniques due to the quality of the cuts and the availability of effective styling aids such as: gel, mousses, and freeze sprays. Some haircuts require more styling attention, such as blow-drying, curling iron work, or finger waving. It is important for the barber to be proficient in such techniques.
Excellence in shampoo services requires the barber-stylist to give individual attention to each client’s needs. In addition to selecting the shampoo best suited to the condition of the scalp and hair, the effectiveness of the shampoo will depend on the way the shampoo is applied, the way the scalp is massaged, and the way the shampoo is rinsed from the hair, and more.
The professional barber-stylist works with chemicals and performs services that change the hair chemically and physically. An understanding of the health and safety standards of the chemical used will help protect both and is essential for an intelligent understanding of the various products and cosmetics used in the barber-stylist shop.
The students will learn the objective of shaving, the fundamentals of shaving, how to demonstrate the ability to handle the razor in four standard cutting positions and strokes, identify the fourteen shaving areas of the face, and the safety and sanitation procedures and precautions.
The objective in this chapter is for the students to learn how to explain and demonstrate the theory and the fundamental procedures associated with a chemical permanent, and the creation of a curl. This is a chapter where the chemical aspects are translated into the student’s ability to create a perm or to straighten the hair for a client. This technique produces great chemical changes in the hair that will offer new options for haircuts and styles for the client. The students will be able to identify the different types of perms, the chemical contents of each, and the methods of application, as well as different methods of hair curling, positions and patterns for perms, rinses, the different categories of curls and their advantages, and the general elements necessary for the job.
The students will be able to discuss reasons why men purchase hair pieces, identify the types of hair used in the manufacture of hair pieces, demonstrate correct cleaning methods for hair pieces, discuss alternative hair replacement methods, and other aspects of hair pieces.
Hair coloring is the science and art of changing the color of the hair. Hair bleaching is the partial or total removal of natural pigment of artificial color from the hair. Skill in both hair coloring and bleaching requires thorough practice, determination and study.
The purpose of scalp and hair treatment is to preserve the health and appearance of the hair and scalp. The treatments also help to prevent and combat scalp disorders such as dandruff, hair loss, dryness and oiliness.
This program is designed in accordance with the regulations and requirements of the State of Florida to obtain the license of “Facial Specialist or Esthetic Technician.” In this program, the students will learn to define the composition, function, types of skin, the difference between skin disorders and skin diseases, and the steps to follow during a facial treatment, including massage, makeup application and hair removal.
The students will learn to establish and describe the different types of property, structure, function and requirements necessary to run a successful business. Also, they will learn the requirements for license renovation, the penalties for different infractions, the security and health requirements of a beauty salon, and in general, all the laws and rules established by the State of Florida for a cosmetology business.
