Family is what we are.  Family is what you become.

Continental is unlike any other Cosmetology school in NH.

While other schools have you in class for 6 weeks and then give you clients, we take a different approach. We have individualized classes that extensively cover all sections of cosmetology in a structured classroom setting. Once the student has ‘graduated” from that class, they are able to do that service on an actual client. Here is a list of classes you will go through and on average how long they take to complete:
