“Start a New Career Focusing on What You Love, HAIR!”
Do you remember growing up and being the person that was cutting, coloring, and styling friends and family members hair? Do you remember being the person at homecoming events and before games and dances, you were the person everyone went to? Doing hair was what you were born to do! And now you become a licensed professional in less than year!
Washington State Governor Jay Inslee signed into law a new “Hair Design License“ to join other states around the country and Evergreen Beauty College is one of the first beauty colleges in Washington State approved by the Department of Education to offer this new Hairdressing license. This means this college can provide federal financial aid for this program that takes less time and less money to have a license to do everything you have always loved to do…HAIR. Now you don’t need to go to beauty school studying additional areas you might not be interested in doing. Majority of salon, barbershops and styling bars do not required licensed professionals to do face and feet, so why should you spend additional money and time learning how to do that?

Your Journey to Choosing the Right Hair Program
It takes a lot of courage to make the decision to begin looking for a career in beauty. We get it because we have been in your seat. Many of our students did not know even what question to ask or how to pronounce the word “Cosmetology”, but we all knew we have loved doing hair since we were little.
There is not just one program to choose from and that is what our counselors are here for. Scheduling a time with our counselors help you create better questions to ask for yourself to be successful and choosing the right program. We aren’t just a school that only has one choice and you may not know there is a difference between Cosmetology or Hair Design or Barbering. That’s okay and what we want to talk about. Fortunately we are approved for the Hair Design license as well and for those who just love doing hair and not face or feet, this program might be better for you and save you some time and money and that is okay. We want what is best for you.
This license is a 1400 hour program that merges the fundamental areas of the Barbering license as well as the Cosmetology license. One big area of difference from the Barbering license is that a Hair Design license allows a professional to performs chemical services such as hair coloring to expand their offering of services for men and women. One area of difference from the Hair Design license and Cosmetology license is that the Hair Design license does not do services the involve areas like skincare and feet (nails), hence the reduction in hours from a 1600 hour cosmetology program to 1400 hour hair design program. That is the reason you can graduate faster for less money if you enroll at Evergreen Beauty College versus taking the Cosmetology Program at any other beauty school if you just want to focus on doing hair. Feel free to see the difference in the law of Cosmetology Vs Hair Design by clicking on the link that communicates the similarities and differences between the license.
