At Sunstate Academy, we make becoming a cosmetologist more fun than you might imagine! Scratch the whole 5 days a week thing; our students enjoy a 3 day per week schedule to complete this 1200 hour program. We believe students learn better when they’re having fun! That’s why we apply hands-on training from passionate instructors who are dedicated to your success. At Sunstate, we don’t work; we perform.

Our cosmetology students receive professional kits with all of the goodies needed during training – think of these as educational swag bags. Want to know what it’ll feel like working in a professional salon? Stick with us and you’ll experience it! Our salon has hair, barber, manicure, and pedicure stations where students can work with clients. We also have private skin care and massage therapy treatment rooms and facial tables. Not too shabby!

We’ll teach you about retaining clients, professional behavior, and the importance of up-selling – although you’ll quickly see that our students aren’t limited to any single product line focus.

This program will prepare students to pass the State Board exam. As state licensed grads, our students will be qualified for entry-level positions as cosmetologists (performing full hair services), nail technicians, or makeup artists. You’ll be ready to snag a job in full-service cosmetology salons or nail salons. Get started now!
