Skip cosmetology school and earn while you learn! Origin Salon Spa offers a state-accredited apprenticeship program to help you earn your cosmetology license while working in our salon, learning all the techniques you’ll need to become a licensed hair stylist. 

Origin offers a paid apprenticeship position for passionate individuals to obtain a cosmetology license in Washington State. This program is for individuals who want to pursue a career in the beauty industry. Our educators work with one apprentice at a time, which means you’ll receive one-on-one coaching with educators who focus on your personal learning style.

You will work alongside your mentors as their salon assistant. Weekly classes include theory and mannequin work, followed by models you provide. The program covers blow-dry styling, formal styling, cutting, smoothing treatments, perming, color formulation, and other studies pertaining to cosmetology. This program requires a 3-year commitment.

Upon successful graduation from the Washington State program, we ask for a 1-year commitment to Origin Salon Spa. Once you’ve completed our apprenticeship, and obtain your Washington State License of Cosmetology, you will be offered a position as a team stylist and considered a valuable member of the Origin Salon Spa team.

As a team member and a professional hair designer, you will receive professional compensation, PTO, group-discounted insurance options, discounted salon and spa services, as well as product discounts for yourself, friends, and family members.
