About our Cosmetology Program
Cosmetology is both an art and a science fueled by passion and a desire to help others. At Minnesota School of Cosmetology, we are dedicated to helping our cosmetology school students develop a solid foundation and a flair for style through hands-on training in basic and advanced industry techniques.
Cosmetology college students will learn how to cut, color and style hair, give manicures and pedicures, provide spa treatments and perform various makeup and skin care techniques from industry-experienced school instructors in a professional salon setting. We keep our cosmetology class sizes small to make sure college students get the individualized instruction they need and attention you deserve. Cosmetology college students will graduate with everything they need to be a versatile artist in an exciting industry, including a cosmetology program diploma from a respected college.
