Cosmetology is both a science and an art. Students are trained to provide services to clients’ hair, skin and nails to aid them in enhancing their appearance.

Butler Tech Cosmetology emphasizes hands ­on learning. Students will work with specific tools, equipment, and products associated with cosmetology. They will gain practical experience in a lab setting by performing hair, skin and nail services first on manikins, and then on other students. The program looks and runs like an actual salon. In the senior year, students provide services to the public through appointments, preparing them to directly enter the real world of cosmetology.

Cosmetology is a full time program for high school juniors and seniors. Students will apply sophomore year.

Butler Tech offers Cosmetology on its main campus (D. Russel Lee) and at the Northwest Career Center (open to Colerain and Northwest High School students).

State Cosmetology License Students are required to pass both lab and theory competencies according to the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology. Students who pass all competencies and academics are then eligible to take the licensing exam.
