Our participation in Madison College's Cosmetology Apprenticeship program is a cornerstone of Genesis Hair & Day Spa. We have always had apprentices on staff and many of our service providers started their careers as an apprentice including our managers!
All apprentice candidates are responsible for completing the application process and paperwork for working with us in tandem with enrolling in an approved cosmetology school. They are expected to comply with the Department of Safety and Professional Services rules and regulations surrounding the apprenticeship program. A cosmetology apprenticeship requires 288 training hours at a school and 3,712 hours of practical training at a salon like ours. Training is paid and must be at least 32 hours per week and be completed in not less than 2 or more than 4 years.
Our Apprentice Experience
Tania sets aside one-on-one time with apprentices, like Emma here, to work with them on hair services then Sarah will work with them on nail and skin services. They then spend time on mannequins, models, and assisting hairstylists on our team to continue working on their skills. Once we determine we're confident in their abilities, we open their schedules to take guests for those services!
Our apprentices are a part of our team. We're proud to help them grow into incredible Cosmetologists!
