These relationships allow us to offer our students the practical training, thorough beauty education, and network of support that they need to graduate. At The Salon Professional Academy, the standards of educational excellence, training requirements, and program expectations have been set by companies who truly care about student success.

Learn More Than Just Cutting Hair

The modern beauty industry is a fast-paced, constantly changing scene. Our 1600-hour cosmetology program combines a thorough beauty curriculum with practical training to help students prepare for their future. We can teach you innovative techniques in hair coloring, cutting, and styling, but that’s not all. The Salon Professional Academy offers a Make-up Designory (MUD) course for any student who wants to add professional makeup application to their beauty skillset. To further prepare our students for beauty careers, we provide additional education in business and marketing, modern salon technology, and using social media as a stylist.

Find a Future You Love

A future in beauty is not limited to only standing behind a salon chair. Cosmetology can open up the doors to a variety of career possibilities, including makeup artistry at a professional cosmetics counter, working as a personal stylist for celebrities, or doing hair and makeup for brides. The beauty industry is all about creativity and individuality. Looking for a future where you can practice beauty artistry in a fast-paced, social environment? Our cosmetology program at The Salon Professional Academy could be the perfect first step in that direction.
