Editor's Description

With two campuses in the Detroit metropolitan area, David Pressley School of Cosmetology offers hands-on training in the latest skin care, hairstyling, nail care, and makeup application techniques.

With a student-to-faculty ratio of 20 to 1, the school can offer more personalized instruction. In fact, former students cite this as one of its many benefits. One student's review says, "Great instructors, quality protocols and products. You work hard but you have a lot of fun. Small classroom sizes make it easier to get quality training."

The 1,500-hour cosmetology program provides training in hair, skin, and nail care. Courses are available in the daytime and evenings, and some weekend classes may be required.

The esthetician program includes 600 hours, or 20 weeks, in specialized esthetics courses. This training is 200 more hours than the state requires so that students may obtain licenses in any state.

The instructor program features 600 hours of additional training beyond cosmetology instruction—100 hours over the state requirement to ensure maximum preparedness for the classroom.
