A study was conducted for the Department of Labor by the American Society for Training and Development which identified the seven skills United States employers

want most in entry level employees. These skills are motivation to learn, basic skills, communication, teamwork, critical thinking, career development and leadership. HCCS is committed to preparing every student with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today's dynamic work environment. Towards this ends, the following skills will be included in this course. Testing and assessing these skills will vary according to the individual instructor. The following are examples of how these skills may be incorporated into this course.

Student Learning Outcomes:

Given the objectives, guidelines and demonstration by the instructor, the student will: 1. Demonstrate proficiency to sculpt and air form a variety of hair sculptures including combination, uniformly layered, and graduated forms using both shears and a razor. 2. Use the razor aching technique to sculpt a variety of techniques to enhance the outcome of the assigned hair 3. Enhance the combination lines of the graduated form sculpture by applying systematic air-forming procedures to the specified standard. 4. Use a notching technique to sculpt graduated texture along vertical; horizontal and diagonal-back lines to the specified standard... 5. Use a notching technique to sculpt a short graduated form with a heavy horizontal fringe and diagonal-back sides to the specified standard.

6. 7. 8.

Complete a hair sculpture on an increased-layer texture from vertical partings to the specified standard. Complete a men's hair sculpture using medium graduation along diagonalback and horizontal partings to the specified standard. Complete a men's hair sculpture using a short square form with lowgraduation to the specified standard.


A. Practical examination B. Written Examinations C. Weekly progress achievement charts D. Individual or group class projects E. Situational observation by instructor (i.e. attendance, ethics Conduct, and attitudes).

GRADE DETERMINATION: Final grade determination is at the discretion of the individual instructor.

Unit Exams Skill Objectives 20% 20%

Special Assignments 10% Mid Semester 10% Attendance Final Exam 30% 10%


90-100 A 80-89 B 70-79 C

60-69 D Below 60, student will repeat the course.


Students are expected to attend class daily and be on time. Any students absent from class in excess of 12.5 percent of the hours of instruction will be dropped from the course (including lecture and laboratory time). Students arriving late to class will not be allowed to clock in until the next class session. 10 points will be deducted for the first day absent from class and 5 for each day thereafter from the attendance grade

Canceling a Class

Every effort is made to begin and hold class at the designated time. Each class is contingent of the required minimum number of students. Occasionally, extenuating circumstances arise requiring a cancellation or delay. In such cases, we attempt to notify all students by telephone. Make sure that the department has a current phone or an alternate number where you can be reached. Houston Community College reserves the right when necessary to cancel classes, alter schedules or substitute instructors. Students are not notified if a class has made. Students are contacted only in the event of a class cancellation or change.

Inclement Weather

In the event severe weather conditions, such as hurricanes, ice storms or other acts of nature create hazardous conditions and /or extended power outages, college administrators may find it necessary to close the college. In this case, students and faculty are advised to listen to the local area radio and television stations for announcements and updates or log on to

Instructor "No Show"

In the event an instructor does not show, every effort will be made to provide a substitute instructor. In the event one cannot be found, the class will be rescheduled.

Student Conduct


Disruptive behavior or any behavior that interferes with any educational activity being performed by the instructor will not be allowed. Additionally, no student may interfere with his/her fellow students' right to pursue their academic goals to the fullest in an atmosphere appropriate to a community of scholars. The following specific rules will apply throughout the course:

1. 2. 3. 4.

Be on time to class. Be prepared with all necessary texts, tools and supplies. Be respectful and courteous to instructors, clients, class mates. Be helpful.


It is the responsibility of the student to withdraw officially from a course to keep from receiving an "F" for the class.


Students in the cosmetology operator candidate program are expected to be selfmotivated individuals and to stay on task at all times. Students must be dressed professionally and appropriately in accordance with the department dress code and must wear a lab coat at all times.


Students are expected to conduct themselves with honor and integrity in fulfilling the course requirements. Any student found cheating on a test, plagiarizing or in collusion will receive an "F" for the assignment and the course and will be dropped from the program. See student handbook for college policy on academic dishonesty and disciplinary problems. This level of development in a students' training is crucial to their professional development and success; any student that is disruptive or disrespectful will be dismissed from the program. Students on the client floor are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. Loud boisterous conduct or refusing to serve a client will constitute grounds for dismissal from the program. Make-up policy for missed assignments or tests: There will be no make-up for missed unit exams. Make-up for a missed mid-term or final test will be permitted only if the student informs the instructor in advance. The student must make arrangements to take the missed test no later than 3 days after the original test date. It should be understood that the make-up test would not be the same as the test given to the rest of the student body.

Disability Support Services

HCCS has a Disability Support psychological counselor and office located at each of its five colleges. Students with physical and learning/developmental disabilities may request

accommodations and special equipment through these offices. For specific program information, locations and procedures to receive accommodations and equipment see the Student Handbook and Class Schedule.
