Cosmetology Curriculum

TONI&GUY is world-renowned for its dedication to delivering legendary education to all of its students. We push the boundaries of hairdressing education by immediately exposing our students to a high-end professional salon environment that ignites creativity.


Cutting Fundamentals

This is the foundation of your education. In this four-week class you will learn everything you need to know to begin creating exceptional haircuts with hands in hair on your very first day of class.


Colour Fundamentals

This is a continuation of hair cutting education with a focus on learning the fundamentals of colour theory and technique. By combining the cutting and colour education you will become a total concept hairdresser.


Intermediate Cut & Colour

A concentration on Spotlight™ customer service, self-marketing, and continuing education. In this part of the program you will focus on classroom and clinic floor work to expand your knowledge and understanding of skin, nails, makeup, styling & updos which cultivates the salon industry as a whole.



This part of the course is a pure focus on building your business. All-day client services allow for hands-on experience in offering top-notch customer service. You will also learn advanced and speed techniques in cut and colour from our latest TONI&GUY annual collection. This will be your foray into how to market yourself within the salon industry.

State Board Prep

These four weeks will be an intense recap of Salon Fundamentals and the core of building your confidence and skills for the State Board Exam. You will be more than prepared as we go over all information, testing, timing, and practical procedures in preparation for state licensure. In most states you are able to take your written exam after your hours are completed.

Salon Professional

Here we will fine-tune your hairdressing skills, go over résumé building, and salon exposure to help with job placement and career advancement. This part of the course also focuses heavily on styling jobs outside of the salon such as photo shoots and fashion shows. We will help you gain the knowledge and confidence you need to enhance your interview skills and land the job both in and out of the salon.

Customized Education/Flex Week

Here is the culmination of all of your hard work. Think of it as the TONI&GUY Spirit Week filled with industry guest speakers, senior projects, awards, TIGI and Dermalogica training, a customized curriculum, and your chance to train in advanced hairdressing education.
