Our Beauty School Philosophy

We believe that hair design is an art form, a living medium: we are the painters and sculptors, using line, color, shape, texture, proportion and rythym to create individual expression. We are the makers of beauty and we believe all hair can be beautiful.

To be successful in all aspects of their careers, today’s students need as much emphasis on learning the most current techniques and artistic approaches to hairdressing as passing the exam for their cosmetology licenses.

A 1500 hour cosmetology course that…

…bends and shapes you from straight to curly, black to blonde,
then back again because that’s what we do: we learn, we
grow, we change. We give body to the limp-headed, waves to
the stiff-headed and light to the dull-stranded. We shape,
twist, cut and scuplt all for the love of it, all for the beauty of it.
