Online Programs

Online Cosmetology School

The recent trend in beauty isn’t a new makeup technique or a modern take on the classic bun, it’s schools offering cosmetology training online.

Because the field of cosmetology is hands-on in nature, cosmetology programs are not offered in their entirety online. Many skills require repeat practical training and real world application in order to pass the practical portion of the board exams. This means beginners are still required to take on-campus courses although the theory and book work portions may be offered online.

While there are no online cosmetology certification programs currently available, there are online cosmetology continuing education programs that will allow students to further their training. These online programs are typically 8 to 12 credit hours and range from specific industries like skincare or nails, to new techniques and business skills. Students interested in these classes must already have a beauty license.

Online cosmetology schools are convenient for students working full-time or who have other time commitments. Online schools cover the same amount of material covered in a traditional classroom, however, the flexibility of online beauty schools is ideal for those with full-time jobs or other obligations.
