Hair Hybrid Program
Hair Hybrid School Program in Arizona
Penrose Academy is now offering, with full approval from our national accreditor and pending final approval by the U.S. Department of Education, a new license for Hair Styling with both full-time 4-Day and part-time 2-Day schedules. If you’re solely focused on creating exceptional hair, and you could do without the skin and makeup portion of Cosmetology, then this program is for you. With our Hair Hybrid program, we give you the chance to jump on the fast track to becoming a licensed stylist.
With Penrose’s Hair Hybrid program you’ll learn cutting, colouring, perming, styling and more in a blended online and in-person training format. The Hair Hybrid program uses MindTap Cosmetology curriculum, a unique interactive online learning platform available through our partnership with Milady, to give you unbeatable training.
Learn technical and theoretical components of hair styling, with classroom training, assisting, and time spent on the Student Salon floor. Complete 4 hours of online distance education per week at your own convenience, from wherever you choose. You’ll also learn industry and business skills through a custom professional development curriculum exclusive to Penrose Academy.
