MARYSVILLE — Everett Community College’s School of Cosmetology is offering a new three-day flex schedule and is introducing training for experienced stylists who want to become cosmetology instructors.

Learn more at the cosmetology open house at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20, at the school, located at 9315 State Ave., Suite G, in Marysville.

Fall quarter classes start on Monday, Oct. 1, for the three-day per week program. Classes run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Students can earn a certificate of cosmetology in five quarters.

“Students can finish the program faster and work part-time while going to college,” EvCC Cosmetology instructor Tina Evans said. “They can get the skills they need at about half the cost of a private cosmetology school.”

The cost of the three-day program is about $1,400 per quarter in tuition for an in-state student plus general student fees, and one-time expenses of $895 for an equipment kit and $300 for books. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

EvCC cosmetology graduates must complete at least 1,730 hours of classes, in preparation for state cosmetology licensing exams. Students can attend full-time or part-time and earn a certificate in cosmetology or an associate of technical arts degree.

EvCC is also offering a new instructor training program for experienced stylists who want to teach, with classes starting on Monday, Sept. 24.

The 600-hour program is for stylists with at least a year of salon experience who want to learn to teach theory and hands-on classes to all levels of students. The program has full-time and part-time options. Job placement assistance is available for graduates.

EvCC’s School of Cosmetology offers a wide variety of salon services to the public, including haircuts and color, nail care and skin care.
