We want every student to be successful, therefore, we believe is imperative to include business training, in addition to the practical skills we teach, in both our Cosmetology and Esthetics courses. We are the only school in Michigan to be partitioned off from a salon by a glass wall, offering a real-life salon atmosphere for our students. Our Academy team has over 40 years experience with the goal of creating a new standard of education that meets both the state criteria and client demands.
