Welcome to Cosmetology!

    Our cosmetology program is a four year program that includes hair, skin, and nails.  Our program prepares the students for the written and practical portions of the NJ State Board of Cosmetology Licensing Exam.  Our students take these exams during the senior year.  Upon graduation, the students  have the opportunity to become a licensed cosmetologist/hairstylists.

    I have been a cosmetology teacher at BCIT for over 28 years and was nominated Teacher of the Year in 2011. I have served as a member of the NJ Hair Fashion Committee and currently serve as an examiner for the NJ State Board of Cosmetology/Hairstyling Licensing Examination.

    As a teacher I enjoy watching the students master the written and practical skills necessary to build a successful career.  I am proud of the students that become licensed professional working in the beauty industry. 

    Congratulations to our 2019 cosmetology students for becoming licensed cosmetologists/hairstylists!
