GALESBURG—Openings are still available for the Carl Sandburg College cosmetology program’s fall semester. Space in the program is limited, so prospective students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Sandburg offers a certificate program designed to prepare students to become licensed cosmetologists in Illinois. The program utilizes teaching methods created by the international hair and beauty company Pivot Point. This unique system provides high quality education and services via course books, DVDs and slides.

Cosmetologists provide many services to their clients, such as styling, cutting, coloring, permanent waves and Japanese straightening. A growing number of salons also offer specialized services such as manicures, pedicures and facials. Additionally, many careers are available in sales and marketing with the large companies that manufacture hair care products.

The 2010 median pay for cosmetologists was $22,500 per year ($10.82 per hour), and employment is expected to grow 14 percent from 2010-2020, as fast as the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

To apply or for more information, contact the Carl Sandburg College Welcome Center at 309.345.3500 or
