Prerequisite: Cosmetology I for Cosmetology II Grades: 11-12

Instruction includes all phases of Cosmetology, including manicures and pedicures, design perm wraps, the latest trend haircuts, and traditional haircuts. Students practice on manikins to gain experience in preparation for servicing clients in Cosmetology II. 

Students are expected to accrue over 500 hours in Cosmetology I to be on track to accumulate the 1000 clock hours required by the end of Cosmetology II. Students will not be able to accrue all needed hours during the regular school day, but will have the opportunity to clock hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the school year from 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm. Juniors may accumulate hours from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm on specified additional days after the end of the regular school year following successful completion of Cosmetology I. Cosmetology II is an advanced study designed to prepare students for the licensing exam and to master skills learned the previous year working with both manikins and clients. 

The Texas Department of Licensing Regulation (TDLR) will grant eligibility to take the licensing exam to students who have completed high school graduation requirements, clocked 1000 hours prior to graduation, and successfully completed both Cosmetology I and Cosmetology II. This program meets all requirements for a Cosmetology license, issued by TDLR after students pass both the written and practical portions of the exam, show proof of required TDLR documentation and proof of a high school diploma. Closed toe shoes are required. 

Cosmetology II is an advanced course for the Human Services career cluster.
