Why Become Dual Licensed in Cosmetology and Barbering?

A cosmetology license is a great way to start a new career. Cosmetologists are able to do manicures, skin care, and makeup. They also learn to cut and style hair. The cosmetology program at Colleen O’Hara’s Beauty Academy takes around 10 months to finish for full-time students. While this career can be rewarding and fun on its own, you can also add to your list of skills by becoming dual licensed!

Who Would Enjoy Being Dual Licensed?

Those who would like to expand their career options can take the barbering crossover course. This four-month program expands the knowledge of hair care for cosmetology students.
