Welcome to the exciting and creative field of cosmetology. CAofB – Career Academy of Beauty has been a leading beauty school located in Orange County with over 50 years of educating students on the various skills to become beauty professionals.
Here at CAofB, we understand becoming a successful beauty professional means more than giving facials and cutting hair. The beauty industry is filled with creativity, business sense, and exploring new techniques and trends. That’s what makes the beauty industry so exciting! If you’re looking into beauty school options, you’ll want to check out Career Academy of Beauty and what we have to offer students. We’re one of the leading beauty schools in Orange County and have been educating those passionate about beauty for over 50 years!
Eligible senior students can extern at local salons in place of a regular school day to train under an already successful stylist. This is a great way to gain hands-on experience and learn what is happening in a real working salon.
We have several salons that participate in our externship program. One day a week, our students have real-life floor time in a professional setting. This affords them real-life experience while earning credit towards graduation, as well as what it takes to become a successful professional.
Students will graduate upon completion of required clock hours, completing/passing all required technical/practical operations, and passing the final examination. Students will receive their diplomas at the graduation ceremony.
To work professionally in the state of California, graduates will be required to pass a state examination for licensing. A final practical and written exam is given to ensure the students are ready for the State Licensing Exam after graduation. Typically if the student is eligible for pre-application they will be able to take the state exam approximately three weeks after graduation.
Job placement assistance is available for all of our graduates. CAofB has a long-lasting relationship with salon and spa owners looking to recruit our graduates. We are happy to offer suggestions and assist you in your future job search. Although we can’t guarantee job placement, we will support you with your resume-building and interview skills and will celebrate with you when you land your dream job.
