Portland Beauty Schools

Welcome to Phagans’ School of Hair Design. We are dedicated to providing the best possible cosmetology education that reflects current progressive trends in the programs we offer.

At our two Portland beauty schools are carrying on the tradition started over sixty years ago by Wilma Lee Phagans’ Harrington, because we still believe that quality education is essential for career success. The first step toward that success is a solid foundation in the basics. We are committed to providing students with the skills and knowledge needed for entry level employment in the professional cosmetology industry. We pride ourselves in providing a positive learning environment at our Portland beauty schools that encourages mutual growth, support and self-esteem building.

Our programs provide a solid foundation which lead to licensure in Hair Design, Esthetics, Barbering and Nail Technology. By focusing on professionalism and holding ourselves to a high standard of quality education, we strive to produce graduates who can be an asset to their profession – not only in talent, but in attitude as well.
