(Black PR Wire) LOS ANGELES, CA. --- The Untouchable Apprentice Program, founded by Master Barber Steve Ellis, helps aspiring cosmetology and barber professionals earn while they learn. Through his innovative program, individuals are able to acquire their mandated training hours while earning income to pay for their courses and even some living expenses. 

Tuition for cosmetology school can range from $5,000 to $15,000. Top beauty schools cost anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000, not including the cost of books and supplies. Through the Untouchable Apprentice program, students receive their Barber or Cosmetology license while training in a salon and earning income, reducing the burden of the upfront cost. 

“Many aspiring cosmetologists practice without a license, risking fines and the potential to be sued. What holds them back is the cost and unpaid time commitment that traditionally accompanies cosmetology school,” said CEO and Founder Steve Ellis. “We help aspiring cosmetologists overcome financial limitations and time restraints through our earn why you learn model.”

To date, Untouchable Apprentice has helped more than 75 cosmetologists acquire their cosmetology license while receiving paid training and real-time experience in a shop or salon. 

“Our objective is to help each student discover his or her potential in their chosen profession,” commented Ellis. “We produce graduates who are well-equipped to find employment in the health and beauty industry. That’s what the Untouchable Apprentice program is all about preparing students for whatever path they choose in the cosmetology industry.”

After years of honing its curriculum and proven track records, the Untouchable Apprentice program is preparing to scale up and make waves. With plans to support aspiring cosmetologists across the country in their professional journey.
