The paper aims to explore the feasible ways of Occupational Competency Standard (OCS) for hairdressing & beauty industry in Taiwan, and expects to effectively master the competency demands for the industry and the staff to improve the gap between learning and practicing, so as to make the talents training in line with the industrial requirements. With the method of literature review and focus group interview, it first analyzed and classified relevant data about the development ways and implications of OCS for hairdressing & beauty industry in United States of America and Hong Kong, and then focus group was conducted to discuss from the perspectives of both academic and industrial circles, so as to analyze the feasible ways of OCS development applicable to the same industry in Taiwan. The results show that the development ways and implications of OCS in the USA, Hong Kong and Taiwan are unique from each other. The mismatch of students' professional abilities and the needs of hairdressing & beauty industry is due to the status quo that technological and vocational schools in Taiwan are not clear about the demands for the competency of industry, combined with the lack of professional skills training and intensive practice in students. Therefore, the feasible ways of OCS development for hairdressing & beauty industry in Taiwan should adopt the development pattern of American skill standards and take Hong Kong classification mode for reference.
