Welcome to Lamar Community College Cosmetology

Congratulations on exploring a career in one of the most exciting occupational areas!  If you are creative, like meeting and working with people, and are interested in hair, or nail trends, you could have a fun and rewarding career as a Barber, Cosmetologist, or Nail Tech.

LCC’s Cosmetology Career Academy offers Barber, Cosmetology, Hair Stylist and Nail Technician certificate programs, as well as an AAS in Cosmetology in a newly renovated salon and classroom. Each certificate/degree program provides students with the skills and knowledge to successfully complete a certificate exam for licensure in the subject area. These programs meet the Colorado State Board of Barbers and Cosmetology contact hour requirements.

The Colorado State Board of Barbers and Cosmetology administers licensing examinations. Students are assisted in applying for the examination and subsequent license upon completion of their program at Lamar Community College.

Students engage in classroom clinical activities in their learning experience. These activities provide for practice on mannequins to acquire basic skills before advancing to supervised work experience on paying clients in the school salon on the LCC campus.

Certificate programs develop skills for employment and are not intended for transfer into advanced programs in college and universities.
