Apprentices & Assistants

Our apprentices go through a 3500-hour licensing program that includes competencies, work ethic and growth reviews, weekly training and daily workday 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 passing 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.

If you are interested in apprenticing please call us and we will give you more information.
