The Cosmetology Program prepares students for employment as licensed cosmetologists. Th program has been offered through Marion Technical College for over 20 years. The Cosmetology program is a combination of theory and clinical experience that provides students with the knowledge base needed to pass the licensure exam and with the skills needed to achieve gainful employment in the industry.  The program includes instruction in all aspects of hair care, as well as facials and skin care, and manicure and pedicure nail care.


Students acquire hands-on skills training through Marion Technical College’s on-campus learning lab/salon, which is open to the general public for services.  The Cosmetology salon is open Tuesday through Thursday for appointments.  Services include shampooing, conditioning, haircuts (no straight edging), curling, foil, facial waxing, manicure, pedicure and much more.  Click here to view the cosmetology salon services and price list.
