Bachelor Programs in Cosmetology Studies

A bachelor’s degree is an entry level of undergraduate study. In many cases, students choose a subject to study such as science or English. A bachelor’s may also be received in a hands-on field, allowing a student to immediately start working.

What is a Bachelor in Cosmetology? Students learn details of cosmetology such as skin, nail and hair care and makeup application. They become experts in styling and maintaining hair and in giving treatments such as facials, pedicures and manicures. Additionally, students learn how to run a salon and run it well by applying business principles. After completing the program, students are able to become licensed cosmetologists.

A Bachelor in Cosmetology offers the opportunity to work closely with people while empowering them through new, expressive hairstyles. Graduates also find many opportunities to move up, as they can one day own their own salons. Students also learn good business and management skills through their coursework.

Costs for cosmetology programs vary depending on the school chosen. A dedicated student might finish a program in two years with evening and online classes, and thus save money. Before choosing, students should conduct thorough research to make sure a program will meet all of their educational goals.

After graduating, students can find work in numerous locations. They may choose to work in salons as hairdressers, stylists and colorists. They may also work in salons giving facials and manicures. Options are also available to students outside of salons. Students may work with beauty and skin-care products or work for funeral parlors styling the recently deceased. Additionally, nail technicians can work in a dermatologist’s or podiatrist’s office and offer hygienic pedicures.
