Our cosmetology school is designed to give you the skills you’ll need to start an exciting new career in the beauty industry. Our instructors will teach you techniques in hair styling, cutting, coloring, makeup, and nail design, as well as salon business and the information you need to know to pass your State Board exam.


The Esthetics program will give you training in many aspects of the skincare industry. Inside our remodeled Esthetics Department, you’ll learn to recognize skin conditions, provide a variety of facials, recreate the latest makeup techniques, perform hair removal, and more. You’ll practice these services on real clients on the clinic floor, using professional products and modern equipment, like our new Earthlite hydraulic spa beds. When you graduate, you’ll be ready to take your State Board exam and start a new career as a licensed esthetician.


The 400-hour Manicuring program at Palomar Institute of Cosmetology is designed to give you in-depth training in nail care using OPI Nail Technology. After completing your classroom training, you’ll move on to the salon floor where you’ll perfect your skills giving nail services to clients.
