Trichology is the bridge of study between cosmetology and dermatology. It is the scientific study of hair, hair loss and associated scalp disorders. Trichologists are trained to provide support and advice to help with hair and scalp disorders such as oily scalp, hair breakage, alopecia, excessive dandruff and dermatitis.


Cosmetologists are specialists in hair care and hair styling, while dermatologists specialize in skincare. Although neither specialize in only hair and scalp conditions. That's the scope of a Trichologist's study.  A Licensed Trichologist studies the hair, scalp, and disorders that cause thinning, hair loss, or Alopecia (The clinical term for bald spots or thinning hair).

Hair loss is a rising epidemic in all communities, and it doesn't have to be. If you are a licensed professional, 8 out of 10 clients that sit in your chair have noticeable signs of hair loss. Hair loss causes undue stress and insecurities in just about everyone who experiences it. Most professionals are trained to cover up the problem. Becoming a Trichologist gives you the training and skills to provide a treatable solution to those clients, while increasing your income behind the chair.


If you have clients with hair that looks like any of the below, becoming a Certified Trichologist should be the next step in your career!
