NOTICE: Due to delays in the construction project, we will not be starting this program in August of 2018 as planned. The start date for the program has been moved back to 2019.


ROC's Cosmetology Program launches in August 2019!

Imagine having a fun, high-paying job that lets you use your creativity to make people look good!  Your dream of becoming a licensed cosmetologist is just about to come true ... at a price you can afford (no-cost to currently enrolled Kern High School District students).


Learn to provide beauty services, such as shampooing, cutting, coloring, and styling hair, and massaging and treating scalp. You'll also learn to provide nail and skin care services, as well as client safety, hygiene, and customer relations.


Training to become a manicurists, esthetician and skin care technician, and hair stylist / designer / cutter are all included in this 1600 hour two year program. Please note that in order to obtain one's California State Cosmetology license students must commit to two-full years of attendance at 4-hours per day (20 hours per week) plus one full summer school session.


Incoming high school juniors and seniors able to make the time commitment are encouraged to apply.
