Students can graduate from Kingwood's Cosmetology Operator Certificate Program in one year or stay for the two-year associate's degree and qualify as an instructor or facial specialist.

The Cosmetology Operator Certificate Program is a full-time 12-month program. Graduates have many employment opportunities including stylist, skin-care specialist, make-up artist, or hair coloring/chemical technician. Other options include working as a research assistant in the cosmetology industry, a sales representative for a beauty product, or beauty editor for newspapers and magazines.

The instructor program is for the individual who wishes to teach cosmetology in a public school, college technical school or private cosmetology school. Cosmetology certificate programs meet state requirements and prepare students for Texas licensure.    

To help meet the growing job demand, Lone Star College-Kingwood expanded its popular cosmetology department to include a facial specialist certificate program.

Approved by the Texas Cosmetology Commission, the facial/esthetic program is full-time, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Classes begin on January 14. The facial specialist certificate prepares an individual to perform all aspects of skin care and make-up. Upon successful completion, the student will be eligible for an Esthetician Operator state license.
