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 are 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 conduct will promote your success.

Hair design decisions are based on the consideration of the facial proportions, consultations with the client, and the students’ understanding of style compositions. Hair styling design follows the same basic artistic concepts as any other form or art, only it is applied to hair. The three principal elements are form, texture, and color. In creating and completing a design, none of these elements should be ignored.

A particular hairstyle for a certain individual may become the person’s most descriptive characteristic, marking the personality and proclaiming the individual’s identity. This chapter will cover three important parts of hair styling: the styling of wet hair, the styling of short hair, and the styling of long hair.

The students at the end of this chapter will be capable of defining color and its laws, as well as be able to identify the natural level, tones, and intensity of the hair. Additional considerations will be given to texture, diameter, and porosity of the hair due to the fact that these will influence the absorption of the color and the timing of the procedure.
