Although we cannot guarantee placement as an incentive for a student to enroll, USCA offers placement assistance to its students. We maintain records, and post notices, for area salons looking for qualified stylists and technicians, and we will work toward placing graduates in the salon they prefer. Salon owners and managers are regularly scheduled to make presentations to our students, to demonstrate skills and speak about their salon’s career opportunities. Career counseling, as well as academic and individual counseling, is available to students.
