Beautiful Futures Begin Here.

Kaskaskia College Cosmetology is an education-based cosmetology school in a community college setting. Our students experience hands-on cosmetology training and have their creativity on full display in a working salon!
Our students are taught the latest hair trends, nail techniques, make-up skills, waxing and skin care, and the theories behind those techniques. This type of well-rounded, balanced education sets us apart from other schools. 
We are proud to have provided the foundations for the area's most successful stylists. Our alumni reach from coast to coast and all over Southern Illinois. Whether in North Carolina, Indiana, Louisiana, Florida, California or anywhere in between, you can find a Kaskaskia College Cosmetology graduate! Check out some of our testimonials from successful stylists!
Kaskaskia College is located approximately 80 miles east of St. Louis, MO, 60 miles north of Carbondale, IL, and 90 miles south of Springfield, IL.
We would love to have the opportunity to show you around our department and tell you more about our curriculum in person. If you'd like to schedule an enrollment appointment, contact us today!
