Cosmetology school helps students with talent and a passion for the beauty industry hone their skills and pave the way to working as professional stylists, skin care specialists, barbers, or nail tech gurus. We welcome students coming from any background with the drive to succeed. 

In addition to teaching our students the fundamentals and more advanced practices, we train each student in business relations and best practices. Upon graduation, students will feel more confident pursuing their dream in the beauty industry and forge a new career with a well-rounded understanding of techniques and business operations.

Standard Requirements

Age

Students 18 and older are eligible to apply. In many circumstances, we admit students who are 16 and older. At Evergreen Beauty College, we believe that no one is too old to reinvent their careers. There is empowerment and joy in the pursuit of learning at any age. 

Application

We encourage all future students to submit an online application. One of the admissions team members will contact you and may require applicants to submit additional documents. 

Assessment Tests

Students must have a high school diploma or a GED to enroll since Evergreen Beauty College is a post-secondary institution. Assessment tests usually consist of testing computer skills. Students must have basic computer skills to keep up with the demand of coursework as part of your school is delivered online. Students are required to achieve a minimum grade in each area of the assessment test.

Hello Zareena, great question. It depends on the school, but most schools don’t necessarily require a GPA level but a degree attainment. Most beauty schools will require a HS Diploma or GED.

Thanks for sharing how there are assessment tests done before someone can go to cosmetology school. My daughter wants to go to one. I’ll see if I can find a test for her to take somewhere.

Hello. I want to go to cosmetology school and was wondering if you could do and learn all of the cosmetology learnings at once so as Nails, hair, skincare, makeup. (That’s cause I wish to do all of those and can’t choose one).

I also know that college is not require for cosmetology but can we still go and major in cosmetology? Will it make me look better with a college degree? And will I learn better? What happens if we go to college for cosmology of our own choice?

Ashley, because Evergreen is a post-secondary institution, you would need a HS Diploma or GED to qualify for admissions.

Cherokye, I think the best college to attend is the one that is the best fit for you. I hope this is not sounding like I am giving a PC response, but truly there are so many different types of schools out there; there are large branded schools, botique schools, accredited and non-accredited … I would suggest you visiting some to see what is the right fit.

Alwande, it depends on the state and the school. For example, in Washington State you may enroll but not be licensed until you are 17 years old. However, some schools require that students have a HS Diploma or GED. Other schools may have agreements with local school districts or Skills Centers to assist current HS Juniors to attend.

Melody, I would encourage you to reach out to your state governing agency. The state laws are all very unique. Example: If your higher education degree was in ‘Education’, such as permitting to teach, it could be recognized as an equivalency for an instructor license in specific states, such as Washington.
