Cosmetology applications sought

Applications are being accepted for the spring semester enrollment in the Cosmetology, Nail Technician and Esthetics programs at the New River Community and Technical College Greenbrier Valley Campus in Lewisburg.

Program coordinator Lisa Brown Carter said only 15 students will be accepted into the Associated of Applied Science in Cosmetology Program in the spring.

New Nail Technician classes begin in January, May and August, Carter said. Cosmetology and Esthetics classes begin in January and August.

The Associate of Applied Science in Cosmetology Program consists of 58 credit hours of instruction in both theoretical and practical skill development required for licensure by the West Virginia Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists. An additional 15 hours of general studies courses are required to complete the degree program.

The Nail Care Technician Certificate Program consists of 18 credit hours of instruction in both theoretical and practical skill development (400 hours) required for licensure by the West Virginia Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists.

Esthetics is a branch of cosmetology that is specific to the care of skin and makeup. It involves beautifying the skin through a variety of techniques, including facials, skin analyzing, makeup artistry, microdermabrasion, facial treatments and skin care regimens.

The esthetics field also includes spa elements for the rest of the body, including aromatherapy, foot reflexology, waxing, eyebrow shaping and eyelash tinting.

New River’s program consists of 30 credit hours of instruction of both theoretical and practical skill development required for licensure by the West Virginia Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists. The program exceeds the 600 clock hours required by the state board.

Students in these programs must have a high school diploma or equivalent (GED). Physical requirements include finger dexterity, negative allergic reaction to cosmetic preparations and an artistic flair for creative design. Students in both programs are eligible for federal financial aid.

Anyone interested in these programs should apply right away in order to secure a spot and to be sure that financial aid is processed before classes begin Jan. 13. For more information about the program, contact Carter at 304-647-3005.
