Program Description

At ICTC, cosmetology students learn the fundamentals of anatomy, cosmetic chemistry, bacteriology, and sanitation, as well as professional hair, skin, and nail procedures. In the student-operated salon, you’ll work with real customers to cut, style and color hair, apply skin care treatments and makeup, and perform manicures and pedicures – as well as manage the operation. It’s a hands-on way to learn this licensed profession! You’ll also gain experience with product inventory, point of sale systems, and selling products.

The General Cosmetology program will fully prepare you for the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology Licensure Exam, and the exam fee is included in your tuition! You will also receive a kit of industry tools and equipment so you’re ready for your first job!


Students who complete the cosmetology or cosmetology instructor programs will be qualified to sit for the relevant Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology licensure exams.
