Apprentices & Assistants

Apprentices & Assistants

Our apprentices go through a 3500 hour licensing program that includes competencies, work ethic and growth reviews, weekly training and daily work day training. All apprentices will work for 2-2.5 years to get their hours and then take The Virginia Cosmetology State Boards Exam. In order to move up after passes the exam they then must do a MHSG test out to move up to the New Talent Artist Level. We take great pride in our training program and find that our devoted apprentices have been very successful.
