Rocky Point High School’s cosmetology program will open the doors of its salon on Oct. 14 for the 2016-17 season. In preparation for their launch, students enrolled in the program have created a website to help promote the services offered.

As part of the program, the students learn all aspects of hair care, including cutting, styling, coloring and more. They also learn skin and nail care, enabling them to become estheticians or nail technicians. In the second year of the program, students expand their skill set and work in the classroom’s fully operational salon, which is open to the community and fellow students.

The district’s cosmetology program is a Career and Technical Education course approved by the New York State Education Department. Students who complete the two-year program graduate with the skills and qualifications needed to be licensed cosmetologists.
