At Cosmotech we believe that," Beauty Changes Lives!"
Take a look around you. It's everywhere...you see it on TV, you see it in magazines, you see it at the mall. You see it every day when you get ready and look in the mirror. Beauty, style, and image ...we all have our own ways of expressing it. How lucky is the beauty professional, who gets to be a part of it all! Where else do you get to create on a daily basis and change people's lives? To the make-up artist, the face is their canvas. To the hairstylist, a head of hair is their unique sculpture. Beauty professionals love what they do. They are united by their desire to create and change the lives of others.

Questions to Consider:
Should I search for schools nearby? Not necessarily. Many students are willing to relocate or travel hours to attend the school that's best for them.
Cosmotech has students that commute from 60 to 100 miles daily to attend its institution.
Does the school have an informative website? It should pertain to the school location you are inquiring about and give lots of info about the school. Be sure to read the testimonials that reflect your particular school. It will give you personal insight.
Cosmotech takes great pride in what people say about the quality of service and salon ready graduates it provides the industry.
What is the instructor to student ratio? This is a very important question when touring a school. Smaller class sizes will maximize your learning potential, provide more personal time with your instructor, and more opportunity to bond with other students. You don't want to be lost in a sea of students or wait an hour for an instructor to check your work.
Cosmotech keeps its class sizes small! The owner has been a Cosmetologist for 23 years and is currently taking the instructors course to lend her experience and talent to her students. She knows what it takes to produce a truly "salon ready" graduate. Our dedicated team, of talented instructors, has the compassion and caring to help you every step of the way.
What are the schools job placement rates? You want to make sure the school has high placement rates and excellent working relationships with local salons for job placement when you graduate.
Cosmotech's owner personally visits salons and networks with salon owners/managers to establish great working relationships for job placement. Salon owners and industry professionals come in and teach classes on new trends and industry needs. We maintain a high placement rate!
Does the school provide clients for you? Make sure the school allows you to work on clients, not bring your own models, after 200 hours. Hands on experience will better prepare you to be salon ready. You don't want to be stuck in manikin alley for months. Ask how many haircuts, etc. a graduating student has there.
Cosmotech has a busy student clinic with a salon atmosphere. Students from Cosmotech have graduated with over 400 haircuts!
