Real World Experience

Part of Shore Beauty School’s mission is to prepare our Teacher Training students for entry-level employment as an instructor or related beauty fields. Shore’s active student clinic provides our students the opportunity to practice and build their skills while performing services on live patrons.

Additionally, you will learn Shear Success Business Fundamental, which Shore created as a practical supplement to the Cosmetology & Hairstyling, Skin Care Specialty, Barbering and Teacher Training programs. Shear Success teaches techniques in building a book of business, networking, marketing, client management and maximizing earnings.

The State of NJ requires a license to work as a cosmetology instructor.  In order to qualify for a cosmetology instructor’s license, you must already hold a Cosmetology & Hairstyling license, have worked as a cosmetologist or in a related discipline for at least six months, and have graduated from Shore Beauty School in good standing, completing the full 600 hours of your program.  In addition, teaching licensure requires an additional thirty hours of college level educational methods training, which course must be approved by the NJ State Board, and is administered off-site by a NJ State approved institution.  The cost of the educational methods supplement is determined by the provider and is in addition to Shore tuition.   Further, the NJ State Board of Cosmetology & Hairstyling requires graduates to pass both written and practical examinations with scores of 75 or better on each exam to fully qualify for NJ State licensing.  The State Board will not schedule the practical portion of the exam until the written exam has been passed.

Shore’s Teacher Training curriculum exceeds the State Board’s standard 500- hour curriculum to better prepare our instructors.  Shore incorporates supplements to our educational programs, including Shear Success Business Fundamentals, that we believe enhance our curriculum beyond State Board standards and necessitate additional training for our instructors.
