Extend your Cosmetology skills and talents and train to go from behind the chair and into the classroom through the Master Instructor — Evening program.
This program will teach practicing cosmetologists how to effectively instruct students in the art and science of cosmetology. As a Master Instructor, you’ll sharpen your skills as a communicator and educator while you learn techniques to teach others about shampooing, cutting, coloring and styling hair. Students in Meridian’s Cosmetology program also learn about hair removal and providing nail and skin care services. You’ll also learn how to provide instruction in these areas as well as massage, facials and scalp treatments and the application of makeup.
Students in the Cosmetology Master Instructor — Evening program work closely with Meridian’s Cosmetology instructor and learn how to prepare and teach cosmetology students. This may include but is not limited to assisting in delivering course content, grading students’ work and exams and supervising their time with clients in Meridian’s salon.
The Oklahoma Board of Cosmetology has established a 1000-hour licensure requirement, with 500 hours waived for students who have worked in a salon for the past two consecutive years (Practicing Master Instructor).
