Your time at Cosmoton will focus on ALL aspects of hair. The difference between barber school and cosmetology school is that cosmetologists take 200 hours to focus on nails and 90% of them don’t ever use their nail education in real life. Barbers take that same 200 hours and focus on men’s grooming which is statistically 40% of a hair professional’s day to day activity. Barber school curriculum is very very similar to Cosmetology except for this difference; barbers can sell straight razor services and cosmetologists can sell acrylic nail services.
The name Cosmoton comes from a prefix Kosmos and the suffix Tonsorius. Cosmos (as we would spell it in english) means; to order, good order, orderly arrangement. It was initially used in science to describe how the universe arranged or organized itself. To us it means to be in order or to apply something (learning) in a step by step manner.
Tonsorius or Tonsor is a word that became associated with the barbering practice in the medieval era (400 to 1400s C.E.) meaning; of or pertaining to shearing or shaving. We are called Cosmoton because we take you from the known into the unknown in a step by step manner and teach everything pertaining to shearing or shaving.
We are not a Cosmetology school but we are not your traditional Barber or Tonsorial school either (although you do end up with a barbering license). At Cosmoton Academy you become a well rounded professional, not afraid of clipper cuts and also not afraid of a blow dryer. This is a 21st Century Barbering Academy.
