How Long Does Cosmetology School Take?

Cosmetology is a rewarding career. Cosmetology has many different exciting career paths that you can choose from to use your passion for creativity and to help others.

To qualify for cosmetology licensure, you must attend a licensed school and complete the state’s minimum required training hours and then take and pass the state's cosmetology board exams. Depending on the state licensing requirements and whether you are a full or part time student, attending cosmetology school could take from 8 months to 2 years. 

Aveda Institute will help you learn how to unleash your creativity in less time than many other careers. With the skills you learn at an Aveda Institute, you'll be prepared to reach your full potential as a cosmetologist.

Whether you want to own your own salon or work in the entertainment industry or anything in between, the Aveda Institute will help you start your career on the right foot. Aveda Institute alumni have gone on to achieve their dreams and much more.
