How many training hours do I need to complete?

Does the school provide the license?

No. The school does not grant licenses nor provide the licensing exam, both are administered by the State. The school assists students with all exam applications as needed and all of our exams, both written and practical, are designed and developed to help you prepare for and pass your State Exams.

Can I get hours for working in a salon or being an apprentice?

No. The NJ State Board does not credit training hours off campus and there is no apprenticeship program. The State does, however, grant the school special permission on individual occasions to give students credit for attending industry-related events.

Will I learn makeup artistry in Cosmetology?

Yes. Makeup and Skin Care currently holds 78 credit hours in our Cosmetology program. Your license will qualify you to perform makeup services in a salon or spa. Because of the growing popularity of makeup artistry and the desire to learn more advanced techniques that don’t fit in our Cosmetology curriculum, many of our graduates enroll into an advanced makeup training course at Robert Fiance Makeup Academy.

Will I learn advanced techniques such as hair extensions?

Yes. Our schools arrange advanced classes for students in many different topics, the most popular being Hair Extensions, Barbering, Airbrush Makeup, and Blow-out Styling. Some classes are provided at no additional cost while others will be optional for a kit fee.
