• Cosmetology




    Cosmetology is an opportunity to explore a range of careers available in the cosmetology industry.  Students will receive training in sequential courses that can lead to their successful completion of the requirements for licensing with Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations.  Students will explore leadership, entrepreneurship, build employability skills and become productive, responsible citizens.  Students will demonstrate the ability to work in a professional salon atmosphere, while in a high school setting.  After passing the state examination, a student could be fully licensed-prior to high school graduation-to work in any salon in Texas.

    The KCAL Cosmetology program features a complete salon set-up, including styling stations, manicure and pedicure spa stations, and esthetics room.


    The KCAL Cosmetology program is under the supervision of Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR).  Students enrolled in the program will be expected to abide by the rules and regulations of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR), as well as the rules set forth by Keller ISD.



    The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) has mandated that students may be enrolled in the cosmetology program while in high school.  Once students have graduated, they may no longer return to KCAL to make up additional hours in order to qualify for the PSI Examinations. 


    Students must have completed 500 hours by the end of Cosmetology I and passed all grading periods.  Cosmetology I must be completed successfully in order to meet the prerequisites requirements to be enrolled in Cosmetology II.


    Students must complete 1500 hours to be eligible to take the PSI examinations.  1000 of those hours are specific cosmetology curriculum as determined by TDLR while enrolled in high school. Students will earn 500 hours, towards the 1500 hour requirement, for academic hour credit for passing all core courses for graduation.
