Imagine a Career Designed to Make You Feel Beautiful

If you like helping others look their best, then you know how good you feel when you see the smiles on their faces.  Now imagine making a career doing what you love to do.  Beauty and Wellness is a growing industry - and you can join in the growth trend by enrolling in the Cosmetology program at FORTIS!

Cosmetology is a creative profession that offers job flexibility and a wealth of unique advantages including real opportunities to start your own business.  Many enjoy the lifestyle of choosing their own hours or working part time when they wish.  Fortis can prepare you to become a beauty professional, capable of pursuing a career as a cosmetologist working in a variety of styling salon environments or even opening your own private cosmetology business.

Cosmetology is both art and science.  Learn to balance your natural creative flair with the technical knowledge required to perform a wide range of skills including haircutting, creative hair styling, coloring, modern nail technology, skin care, chemistry, facials, and more.  You need good people skills and an ability to please customers to be a success, so Fortis students are taught skills to build repeat and referral customers by practicing good business management techniques.

Whether you choose to create fashion behind a chair in the salon; own your own salon or spa business; or opt for the excitement of a career in fashion or product education, Fortis can help you reach your artistic, technical, and lifestyle goals.
