Q:

Can I get my cosmetology degree online?

A:

As of September 16th, 2014, online cosmetology degrees are not available. All 50 states require the majority, or in some cases all, of cosmetology training hours to be held in the classroom due to the need for hands-on experience.

Some classes such as theory can be taken online. Individuals who already have a cosmetology license can also take continuing education units online in order to renew their cosmetology licenses. Ultimately, cosmetology students need hands-on learning experiences in order to pass the practical portion of the state board exams. Therefore, a complete online cosmetology degree is not expected to be available in the near future.
