How We're Different

  • Our mission.  Our focus is on getting you prepared to work as a licensed professional.
  • Small classes.  We prefer small classes where the instructor to student ratio is reasonable.
  • Low turnover.  Our educators stay with us; they share the school’s mission. 
  • Experience.  We were founded over 20 years ago.  Before that, we offered continuing education for over 20 years!
  • Accreditation.  That means that we have standards & expectations of institutional quality that we strive to exceed.
  • Beautiful school.  Everyone says our school is more like a high-end spa.  We want it to be a place students enjoy.
  • Proven Methods.  We know that there are different types of learners.  Our program is designed for different learners & our educators are experienced with different learners.
  • Theory.  Theory is what is behind what you do.  Why you choose this or why you didn’t do that.  When you complete the program, you will know what you are doing & why like a 2nd language. 
  • Practical Application.  We have created rubrics (like recipes) for every detail of how you do what a stylist or aesthetician does.  Little steps take you on a long journey.
  • Testing.  Yes, testing.  We have created tests on both theory & practical to enhance your learning.  We don’t have students who fail the state licensing exam!

We know you have a choice in schools.  We choose you & hope you will choose us.  If you are ready to invest your energy into becoming a successful, licensed person in the professional beauty space, we can get you there.  Are you ready?
