Whether you are looking for a career in cosmetology, or are a customer looking for quality, affordable service – the Tucson College of Beauty is the place to be.

In its 11th year in the region, Tucson College of Beauty continues to turn out strong professionals every year who either go to work in an already-established business, or immediately open their own.

The college has about 45 students who are required to complete 1,600 hours, which includes classes and a lot of hands-on work, to get certified. 

The hands-on work is with real people with supervision from a licensed professional. The supervisor emphasizes the importance of professionalism through how their students dress, timeliness and how they conduct themselves.

While some may think cosmetology is an easy career, the process to becoming a professional is no easy task. For 11 months, students work 8 hours a day, five days a week, along with completing assigned homework.

Besides creating a learning environment where students are given positive, constructive feedback, giving back to the community is also a cornerstone of the Tucson College of Beauty.

In October, the students were part of fundraisers for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. All year, students provide free haircuts to residents of local assisted-living facilities, including St. Luke’s Home.

The Tucson College of Beauty is located at 3955 N. Flowing Wells Road, and can be reached by calling 887-8262, or visit the website for more information at www.tucsoncollegeofbeauty.com.
