Cosmetology Apprenticeship Program

The Massachusetts Cosmetology Apprenticeship Program is 1000 hours and has the exact same curriculum as the traditional 1000 hour Cosmetology Program. A student contracts with the school for a for a minimum of 600 hours and will be required to be in an approved Apprentice Salon for a maximum of 400 (paid)hours.

What is the difference, instead of being in a school’s student salon, the student is in an Approved Apprentice Salon earning a wage and learning the latest product knowledge and hands on techniques at the side of an Cosmetology Industry Tradesman.   The experience our students are receiving exceed what they would be able to receive in any school salon. They are also earning minimum wage and tips!

Mansfield Beauty Schools has designed the academic and practical portion of the curriculum to be completed in 600 hours. Mansfield Beauty Schools charges for the minimum of 600 hours.  Mansfield Beauty Schools does not charge for the hours the Apprentice does in the Apprentice Salon.
