Our Goals for Our Students
Our goal for you as a student is to give you the basics of what will be expected of you in the real world. Not only do we train in the areas most apparent at a beauty college, but we also encourage you to receive 10% of your training in salons outside the school, giving you some of that "real world" experience. Throughout the course of the year we schedule field trips to local salons where students can learn techniques and get special instruction from true professionals. We schedule many guest speakers from the industry during the year, including representatives from Redken, our exclusive color supplier.

For those students with a competitive edge we also proudly participate in a yearly Cosmetology competition. SkillsUsa is a competition which involves cosmetology programs statewide. In past competitions we have had students place in all three top positions, with two of those student receiving first place and moving on to the national competition, held annually in Kansas City, MO.

Returning Students
In life, sometimes things happen that can be out of our control. Often times at the schools we see students start a program only to have to leave part way through, because of circumstances beyond their control. Or maybe a student just wasn't ready to commit to finishing the program.
Either way, we want you to know, if you once took classes at one of our schools, we have your records on file. By law we need to keep those records for a minimum of three years. However, I understand the importance of keeping these records for as long as possible, for the benefit of the students. So, we keep records of all the former students, permanently.
If you are interested in restarting the program or if you have hours with another school that we can confirm, we would be happy to discuss your enrollment. Please call us or use the email link at the bottom of the page to contact us.
