Cosmetology Classes in Orange County

Cosmetology Classes

Advance Beauty College – Garden Grove offers one of the best cosmetology classes in Orange County. Our program has been running for over 30 years in our original location located in the heart of Little Saigon. Our newly renovated two story building offers over 9,000 square feet of both administrative and academic space. Students in our cosmetology program attend school for 1,600 hours before they are eligible to take the California State Board Exam in Cosmetology. Students enrolled in this program will learn the basics of hair cutting, styling, coloring, highlighting, permanent waving, facials, manicures, pedicures and much more. Instruction is given via demonstration, lecture, classroom participation, and examination by our team of passionate, experienced instructors.

Day in the Life

Here is a snapshot of what a typical day for one of our full time cosmetology students looks like:

The day begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. in theory class. The instructor presents the daily topic and lectures, taking time to answer questions. At 10:30 a.m., students then move into their practical learning for the day. Beginner students will be given instruction on a basic skill and given time to practice. Advanced students will either work on clients in our modern, full service student salon or work on an assignment on their doll heads. Students typically take a 30 minute lunch break between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m., depending on if they are with a client or not. In the afternoon, the instructor will gather the students to present an additional hands-on topic. Students are then allowed to practice this new skill. The day wraps up at 5:30 p.m. when they clock out for the day.
