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

Even though, she has no prior education to be a hair stylist, she excited to be apart of Michael’s apprenticeship program to become one!

I was born in Henderson, Nevada and grew up for most of my life in St. George, Utah. I moved to Virginia my sophomore year of high school and lived with my aunt and uncle, whom are all around amazing people. I’ve learned to try many things in life until I find the one thing that brings me pure joy. With working with the MHSG staff, they have helped me learn, grow and find something that I am truly passionate about. All my life I have wanted to help people and bring joy into their lives. By joining the Hair Industry, I can make someone feel good about their hair and it can help make them feel good all around. I’m so blessed that I have such a supportive family and so many amazing friends that have helped me make it to where I am today! I can’t wait to see where the apprenticeship program will take me!
