Meet the instructor

My name is Vicki Brown-Sigvartson and I am the Cosmetology class instructor  at Sno-Isle TECH! In my class you will have the opportunity to learn a basic introductory level of cosmetology services in a professional setting. You will get to work with specialized equipment, products and tools, share ideas and experiences with your peers, and make some new friends in the process.

I have over 18 years of teaching experience in the Cosmetology Industry, and 17 years of on-the-job training in a salon prior to joining the staff at Sno-Isle TECH. Students who complete all requirements and pass with a 76% or better, and have a minimum of 350 clock hours will have the opportunity to continue their training at the EvCC Cosmetology program. Upon successful completion of the Cosmetology 2 program and 1,730 clock hours, students are eligible to take the Washington State Board of Cosmetology exam to become licensed professionals.

If you haven’t done so already, take a moment to watch my classroom video profile (above) and check out some to the pictures of me and my students working (below). Thank you for your interest; I look forward to meeting you at Open House in February or during our interviews next March!
