We know your cosmetology education is important to you. That’s why we focus on making your education rigorous, but fun. It’s important that our students not only learn the arts of cosmetology, but that they learn safety, sanitation, and how to develop careers in cosmetology. We offer academic, lab, and hands-on training in hair design, esthetics, nail technology, and barbering in fun and hip environments in key areas of Portland, Oregon.
You’ll be learning some of the latest techniques on the latest equipment and you’ll be proud of where you are getting your cosmetology education. Best of all, your hands-on education will take place in one of our beautiful student-staffed Portland hair salons.
