Hairstyling Training

 

You can become a fully certified and licensed hairstylist with Ministry-accredited hairstylist pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs with Studio 500.

About 90 per cent of the program involves on-the job training by sponsors of training employers and the rest is theoretical training through a community college or by an approved training delivery agent such as Studio 500. 

Because the training is on-the-job, there are opportunities to earn while you learn and develop skills that are in high demand. Apprentices may qualify for a training allowance, employment insurance and/or an apprenticeship grant while attending school.

Studio 500 Hairstyling Apprenticeship Program is funded and supported by the provincial government, through Employment Ontario. Registered apprentices pay only 10% of the tuition cost which is $400 plus GST.  Studio 500 also provides a complete tool kit, including everything you will need to be successful during your training, and text book with exam materials. 

To become a hairstyling apprentice:
  • Find an employer to hire and sponsor your training
  • Sign a training agreement with your employer that is prepared by an Apprenticeship Branch consultant. 
  • After completion of the apprenticeship – including in-school accreditation and salon work – you are eligible to write the provincial Certificate of Qualification examination to become a licensed hairstylist in Ontario.
