Studio RLC Cosmetology program's next start dates coming in May, August


Day, Evening options available

Studio RLC, Rend Lake College’s Cosmetology school, is gearing up for new classes in the coming months, including an evening option. Students will learn everything from basic haircuts to today’s trendy styles.

Registration is going on now. Students can complete the program in just one year in the daytime format, or in 21 months through the evening program. Students who successfully complete the program will earn an occupational certificate in Cosmetology, and will gain experience at Studio RLC, the program’s full-service salon. The program is housed at the Rend Lake College MarketPlace on Potomac Boulevard in Mt. Vernon, just west of Interstate 57 / 64.

Students can get started in the day program either this summer or fall. The summer start date is Wednesday, May 1, and the fall start date is Monday, Aug. 26. For those interested in the evening format, that start date is Monday, Aug. 19.

The certificate consists of six classes: Cosmetology Theory I and II; Cosmetology Clinic I, II and III; and Cosmetology Internship. Typical graduates work as hair dressers in chains or independent salons or open their own businesses.
