The Mi Esperanza Cosmetology School is an eight month program that teaches entry level skill in hair cutting, hair color, wash and styling, manicures tradition and shellac, acrylic nails, facials and massage. Each student is required to secure a six week internship in a local salon to complete her course work. Many students are offered jobs from their salon owner upon completion.
Our cosmetology course is taught by Paola Martinez, a 2009 Mi Esperanza graduate. She joined the Mi Esperanza team in 2011. Since her graduation Paola has opened 2 salons and employs Mi Esperanza graduates at both locations. You can read Paola's full bio in our staff section.
The cost to fund a cosmetology student is $500.00. You can make a donation specific to this program in the donate area of this website.
