Week 5 brings bleaching basics. To bleach the hair, students use chemicals to oxidize the hair which shatters the molecules allowing the color of the hair to change. This can be a tricky step in the hair coloring process because every persons hair is unique and reacts differently to chemicals.

When looking for a good shears one must look for the type of shear, handle style, and length. Learn more about our cosmetology offerings at morainepark.edu/programs.
