Our Student Salon

Part of the education for our cosmetology includes a portion where our students get to interact and work with actual clients. All of these services will be performed under the direct supervision of licensed professionals in our student salon that looks and feels like any other professional salon. This will give students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned through their classes and work with high-end beauty products.
