Looking for a fun and exciting place to help you take your career to new places?
Check out Minnesota School of Cosmetology, which has a long tradition of giving students the training they need to land a job in the beauty industry. We offer a comprehensive program in which you will be trained in the areas of hair, skin, nails and makeup.
With convenient locations in Woodbury and Plymouth, MSC can give you the skills you need to help people look and feel their best! Plus, students can complete the program in as few as 10 months with full-time, year-round enrollment.
Here are five reasons why you should consider MSC.
1. Practice What You’re Learning
During your classes at MSC, you’ll get hands-on training that will help prepare you for work in the beauty industry.
Our program prepares students for entry-level careers as stylists, hair color technicians, estheticians and more.
MSC also offers services for actual clients, giving students the chance to practice their skills and get real-time feedback from customers.
2. Technological Edge
As part of MSC’s program, each student receives an iPad®, making us the first cosmetology school in Minnesota to incorporate the tablet into the curriculum. Our Educational User Experience Scholarship was created to help full-time students fund the cost of the tablet.
The iPad allows students to utilize cosmetology-specific applications and learn how the devices can be used in the industry. With the iPad, MSC students can:
- Record and replay lessons
- Share possible hairstyles, makeup choices, nail designs, etc., with clients before beginning
- Go over “virtual makeovers”
- Capture images for your portfolio
- Prepare for state boards
- Study on the go
The tablet eliminates the need for textbooks and paper handouts, enhances the salon experience for guests, and helps students become familiar with the latest technology.
“We believe the iPad and its engaging content will improve learning, ignite creativity and add to the overall effectiveness of the cosmetology teaching and learning processes,” says Jill Hocking, campus director at MSC’s Woodbury campus.
3. Prepare for Variety
No matter what area of the beauty industry excites you, MSC has you covered.
Our students say the variety of the program offerings is a big draw, and illuminates parts of the beauty industry you may not have even known you’d enjoy.
At MSC, you’ll learn how to:
- Cut, color and style hair
- Give manicures and pedicures
- Provide spa treatments
- Do waxing services
- Apply facials, masks and enzyme peels
- Apply makeup
In addition to beauty basics, our program instills the importance of professionalism and shows how a commercial salon operates.
It’s all part of the multifaceted aspect of MSC’s learning environment.
4. Student Support
Our instructors work hard to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to find a job in the cosmetology industry.
MSC’s career services representatives are here to help you. Even if you find yourself in a transition period later down the road, you can always come back for guidance and help.
We assist students in a number of ways, including:
- Finding current job openings
- Helping with resumes and cover letters
- Conducting mock interviews
- Teaming with potential employers for demos, career fairs and panel discussions
MSC also offers financial aid for those who qualify. Our financial aid representatives will work with you to identify any potential scholarship or grant opportunities you may qualify for.
We work to empower our students and help them reach their goals.
