For those who are serious about becoming a professional hairdresser, there are some important skills that need to be mastered. Knowledge, exercise and mastery of important hair treatment methods together with styling and color methods are all part of a professional training program for cosmetology.
Cosmetology students learn and practice appropriate shampoo application techniques and services at real salon students. Exercise involves the use of hair balm massage to promote salon relaxation and proper application of shampoos and conditioners. The hair stylist will also sometimes train in the treatment of scalp problems with different conditioners for different skin types or at least be knowledgeable about which products should be recommended to their clients related to scalp care.

Cutting technology, such as texturing, sculpture and painting, is mastered by practical practical experience. Training is also provided in proper trimming and grooming of facial hair which is part of learning release skills unique to men's hair styling, such as proper use of razors, scissors, cuts and combs.
Learning to style hair also includes the use of hair styling treatments such as perms, curling and hair straightening. The hair stylist students learn how to text and shape the hair according to an individual's face shape and the client's hair design preferences. First, students study hair mannequins or training heads that are a correct representation of the human head with implanted hair to provide a realistic model for learning to cut, style and treat hair. Mannequins allow the student to train hair styling techniques to gain confidence in their skills without having to worry about causing injury or damage to a living person's hair.
Another important aspect of learning to be a hairdresser is the use of hair dyeing to achieve the desired appearance of the salon guest. Students learn composition, application and proper use of products and chemicals for temporary, permanent and semi-permanent coloring and marking of hair. With practice, the students create special color effects and unique looks with foil, bleach & tone and color services. Also covered are techniques for removing color from skin and staining small parts of hair, such as eyebrows, beard, mustache and eyelashes.

The length of training in a cosmetology program varies depending on the state. For example, in the Washington state, education programs require 1600 hours, which is about 12-13 months.
