Cosmetology Program At Moraine Park Opens Up World Of Possibilities

If you’ve ever considered attending a beauty school you may want to consider the Cosmetology program at Moraine Park Technical College first. Danielle Jacques is a Barber and Cosmetology Instructor at MPTC. She went through their program and worked at a local salon for 14 years before returning to Moraine Park as an instructor. She says unlike beauty schools, jobs are waiting for graduates from Moraine Park’s Cosmetology program. She says, “Beauty salon owners and spas are just desperate for people. A lot of our graduates are hired before they are even done with school. A lot of them start as receptionists in salons and then they just roll into their full time position after they are done with schools.” She says one of their students dreamed of doing hair and makeup for the Fashion scene and that dream has come true. She says, “We have one who that was her dream when she came to school and that is what she is doing now out in New York. She was really into like the Fashion scene, the runway scene. She’s out there doing that now. There are so many opportunities and possibilities for people.” The Cosmetology program at Moraine Park is a one year program. It tackles skin care, nail care and hair care. The program is licensed by the state.
