BAKERSFIELD, CA. — Salon 33 is unveiling an apprentice program that will allow cosmetology students to earn their license after 39 hours of work.

“Education 33 is an apprentice program where we’re trying to get individuals who are interested in barbering and cosmetology into the industry sooner than they would going to a traditional barber or cosmetology school," said David Herrera, Salon 33.

As an alternative to beauty school, the program allows you to go to class once a week for eight hours.

“There’s a lot of people who do makeup or barbering in their garage or home they don't have a lot of money or time for school they have families to take care of. This allows them to go to school one day a week and work in a salon sooner than they would," said Herrera.

The program has helped students with jobs or families to juggle the workload.

“I was planning on going to college and then I decided beauty school was really what I wanted to do so I was gonna go to Milan but then I discovered education 33 and I realized it would be a lot quicker and better opportunity for me," said McKenna Miller, Education 33 student.

The last day to sign up for the program is Monday, October 21st. The limit for the program is 25 students.
