Can I Enroll in Cosmetology Programs While I’m Still Attending High School?

For most cosmetology programs, there is a policy that students must have a high school diploma, GED, or equal to enroll. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be involved in campus culture as a high school student. Even if immediate enrollment isn’t an option, there are multiple ways to lay a strong groundwork for your future cosmetology career.

  • Follow Us on Social Media: Keep up with our Colorado beauty school on social media. That way, you’ll know about any fun events, beauty boot camps, and workshops you can attend on campus. (Link to Social Channels)
  • Become a Model for Cosmetology Services: A lot of the time, cosmetology schools need models to work on for educational purposes. If you don’t mind experimenting with your look, this is a great way to learn for free before enrolling. You can still get involved by asking to be a model for hairstyles, color, makeup, and more!
  • Research: If you’re planning on attending cosmetology school after graduating high school, you should make it a point to research if the school is accredited or meets high standards for quality. Additionally, you should educate yourself about the brands the school has partnered with. ESI Westminster is an accredited beauty school and partners with L’Oreal, which recognized our educational efforts as one of the best in the country.
  • Practice and Experiment: Begin experimenting with different hair and makeup styles on yourself, friends, or family. This hands-on practice not only sharpens your skills but also helps you develop a portfolio to showcase your work.
  • Contact Admissions: You can contact our admissions director to explore your options and schedule a tour to see if it’s a good fit for you.
