Prepare for greatness. Texarkana College Cosmetology is a Pivot Point Member School and CHI Environmental School, offering excellence through education in a state-of-the-art facility designed to prepare students for a career in this rapidly expanding area. This program provides students with classroom study, demonstration, and practical work. Combining art and design, Pivot Point’s Designer’s Approach teaches students how to see, think, create, and adapt as designers. Pivot Point training not only teaches you the “how” but the “why”. Pivot Point believes that training only the “how” limits the students to technical skills… The “why” enable the students to create and adapt as hair designers. We also require students to complete at least four community service projects to teach them the importance of giving back. A Pivot Point education stands apart from others, giving graduates an advantage over other beauty school graduates. After graduation for the cosmetology course, students take the state licensing examination. The examination consists of a written test and a practical test in which applicants demonstrate their ability to provide required services. Students in the cosmetology program are kept abreast of the latest fashions and beauty techniques and are ready for immediate employment upon graduation and passing the state test.
