When choosing to be a hair design professional, you choose to make hair your creative canvas. Successful students will meet exciting people and develop a passion for making people feel good because they look great.

The Mountainland Technical College Hair Design program is a minimum of 1,200 hours, and will prepare students for the Utah State Board of Hair Designer licensing exams. Students receive valuable experience focused on hair cutting techniques, hair coloring, chemical hair services, hair extensions, and barbering. Instructors help students develop a passion for the personal service industry. Successful students are prepared to license with the State of Utah, which will allow them to work in traditional salons or barber shops. Students can also pursue careers in film and television, work at resorts, and many other industries. Hair Design professionals can work for many different employers or choose to work independently, allowing for flexibility in employment and work hours.
