Operator Certificate

About the Career

The COM Cosmetology Operator Certificate Program presents all aspects of the cosmetology profession – haircutting, styling, coloring, chemical texturizing, manicures, and pedicures.

The program trains students for state licensure and for successful careers as independent or professional salon stylists. It partners with professional companies such as CHI and Redken.

About the Program

Beyond labs and classes, advanced students refine their techniques working alongside instructors at The Salon at College of the Mainland, located at 15009 Delaney Rd. in La Marque. Students at the full-service salon provide clients with manicures, pedicures, haircuts, coloring and styling.

Instructors draw on their years of professional experience as they assist students in the classroom, salon and lab. Their advice and support continue beyond graduation as students launch their careers and endeavor to reach their goals.

Full-time students may complete the program in a year, and part-time students may complete in 2 years.
