When choosing to be a cosmetologist, you enter into a creative and exciting profession. Students learn to express their creativity as they perform services on the hair, skin, and nails. Successful students that complete the program and pass the State of Utah cosmetology licensing exam will qualify for job opportunities, meet amazing people, and make others look great.

The Mountainland Technical College Cosmetology program is a minimum of 1,600 hours and will prepare students for the Utah State Board of Cosmetology licensing exams. Students receive valuable experience focused on hair cutting techniques, hair coloring, chemical hair services, hair extensions, barbering, facials, waxing, and nails. As students develop skills and a passion for the personal service industry, they can work in traditional salons or spa environments, pursue careers in film and television, work at resorts, and many other industries. Cosmetologists can work for many different employers or choose to work independently. Successful completion of the MTECH Cosmetology program and the State of Utah licensing will allow you to have the flexibility you desire in a cosmetology career.

This program is eligible for Financial and Veterans Aid! Learn more

Unfortunately we are not taking transfer students. However, you are welcome to enroll as a new student.

Students will only be able to attend one schedule. During the 40 hour schedule, students will be able to come in on Saturdays instead of Mondays, after they have completed about 1,100 hours.

High school students need to complete their required high school classes so they have time for the Cosmetology program. High school students usually take their first periods of the day at their high school, then come to MTECH afterwards.
