This one-week capstone project allows students to showcase their combined skills learned throughout their Hairstylist and Esthetics courses as part of the Advanced Certificate in Cosmetology Program. Having a high-end portfolio is essential for showcasing your skills to potential employers or your own future clientele. Students will create 2 separate full looks on live models and will be responsible for everything from design to execution, thus allowing them to demonstrate that they can work under a time constraint and produce professional quality work.  They will also finish this course with professional quality photos of their work to add to their portfolios.
