Cosmetology Schools in Alabama

If college is just not the right fit for you, and you are looking for a career that suits your creative interests, cosmetology is an excellent option. Cosmetology programs typically take only a year to complete and have financial aid and scholarships available much like colleges. 

Whether you are looking for a school nearby or one far away to move to, we have put together a list of schools in Alabama. As always, we encourage personal research into any school that you are looking in to, to ensure accreditation. Also speak with your personal stylist to learn where they have went to school, and the requirements involved with being a registered cosmetologist.
