Cosmetology which covers Hair, Skin and Nails is a 1600-hour program. 
Zenzi’s Cosmetology Program offers the student an essential balance of theory (hands on classroom training and practice) and practical (time spent working on paying customers).  This balance is put into 2 – 800 hour segments of training.  The first 800 hours are spent in 5 different areas of study (for 5 months)-Haircutting, Hair Styling, Chemicals, Skin Care/Makeup, and Nails (one cycle each month).  While students are in a particular cycle, they may bring in family and friends to practice on, at no cost.  After completing these 5 “cycles” the student will advance to the clinic floor (working on actual school customers) and perfecting and building on what they have already learned.  No other school devotes this amount of time to skill development!

This curriculum has stood the test of time and proven itself successful for both fast and slow learners, career change students and foreign students. Also, Zenzi’s has never limited itself to just one product line.  To give students maximum exposure to a variety of products so they will be more familiar with what is used in salons today, we are proud to use Goldwell hair color, Wella hair color, Scruples hair color, Framesi hair color and we retail and use Paul Mitchell Products, KMS, American Crew, Dermalogica, 2EL , Kryolan makeup, and Innersense Organic Beauty Line. 

State Board preparation is stressed during the cycles, and again when students are on the clinic floor.  Students are well prepared for their practical and written tests.  A student may return for one year after graduation to prepare for the Board, at no cost.

In addition, our program also covers Updo’s, Extensive Women’s and Men’s Cutting, Braiding, Extensions, Salon Highlighting Techniques, Multi-Dimensional Colors, Spa Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Art, Paraffin Hand and Foot Treatments, Back Facials and much more!
