Our Mission


Our Educating Methodology


Many people are visual learners; Most learn best hands-on. Yet many schools—even beauty schools—teach mostly out of books. Not us! Our unique multifaceted method gets students up and out of their chairs and working hands-on. We use a wealth of interactive, multimedia, video, and live demos and master educator/stylist and lectures to address the full range of learning abilities. Because of this, our students will learn more, and have fun while learning.
