|Description:||This two-year Ontario College Diploma program prepares students with the knowledge and skills necessary to work as a hair stylist. The program of study emphasizes a strong theory and practical component in cutting, styling, permanent waving, chemical hair relaxing, colouring and lightening hair. Students also gain knowledge and skills in hair addition service, as well as salon operations. Students demonstrate and practice these techniques in the College`s fully functional salon, developing individualized styling options, prescribing products and performing safe and hygienic practices on clients.
In conjunction with the in-school training, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) requires all graduates to complete 2,000 hours of in-salon apprenticeship hours. Once both components (in-school and in-salon) have been satisfied, graduates are eligible to write the provincial exam certification for an additional fee.
