Our faculty is comprised of teachers who are not only exemplary educators, but also successful salon & spa owners and staff members. Our faculty, staff, and students are all held to the same code of conduct.
Students receive a great education in cosmetology, esthetic skin care, makeup, teacher’s certification and nail care - preparing them for a creative, rewarding and successful career in the salon and spa industries.
"Education is about more than learning technical skills, it is about growing as an individual".
