Cosmetology

What will I learn?

PCC’s Cosmetology program will teach you job entry skills, customer communication and shop procedures. Our instruction includes professional ethics, business, chemistry, anatomy, bacteriology, shampoo and rinses, color theory, hair coloring techniques, permanent waving, hair styling and cutting, manicures, pedicures, facials, makeup, and federal and state safety and sanitation regulations.

Your clinical experience will involve working with clients under the supervision of your instructors while following actual shop procedures in order to prepare you for your career.

 

Marijuana Policy

THC (marijuana) is part of the required 10-panel drug screen prior to admittance into any Health Professions or Public Safety program at PCC. The passage of Amendment 64 in the State of Colorado, does not overrule Federal law, which states this is still an illegal substance. Students testing positive for THC (marijuana, including prescription marijuana) will not be allowed entrance or re-entrance into a Health or Public Safety program.
