Learn how to cut hair and more in IBMC’s Hairstyling classes
What to Expect as a Student
As a student of the Hairstyling program, you will receive both classroom and practical hairstylist training over the term of your program. You will receive focused and individualized attention from experienced educators. You will learn about cutting, styling and coloring by using the latest tools and techniques.
Students will gain a strong foundation in safety, hygiene, product knowledge, learn professional work habits, and are taught business fundamentals — areas that prepare students for the State Board Examination. In addition, students gain valuable experience and hands-on practice by working on models and guests in the on-site Student Beauty Services Clinic.
