A solid education is a crucial foundation for working in cosmetology. However, we also know there are many hopeful stylists who want to work in the industry—but don’t have the money for a traditional cosmetology program, or don’t want to graduate with debt.
Ecco Salon’s Apprentice Program offers a different approach. Our program allows individuals to prepare for licensure through hands-on training and mentorship in one of our three salons. As an apprentice, you’ll work directly with one of our senior team educators, where you’ll receive one-on-one training — and get paid for it.
The Apprentice Program is a great way to get real-world experience immediately—not after you graduate. Apprentices begin by observing other stylists and gradually work into practicing various techniques on actual clients. This exclusive program is highly individualized, with apprentices learning and refining their skills over a two-year period.

If you’re not sure if we’re the right place to start your stylist journey, we invite you to come and shadow one of our Senior Educators. You’ll be able to spend the day in the salon, immerse yourself in our culture and see the dynamic of our team as well as observe the Senior Educator at work and talk with our other stylists about their experiences.
