We Have a Unique Perspective!

At Phagans School of Hair Design, the work is constantly changing. This isn’t like a high school where we’re re-using textbooks year after year. The beauty industry is constantly evolving and changing, with the best industry practices being established nearly every day. We’re working to keep pace with the beauty industry, so our students can graduate with confidence that they have the skills to keep up.

As we are not a product-based school, our students also have the flexibility to build their skills without being tied down to a specific product range. We understand that every student is different, much like every client is different! Every year we adapt to the need for changes in our curriculum and emphasize how important it is to master multiple skills. We offer dual programs for hair design, nail technology, and esthetics so our students can choose which programs will suit their goals best. The beauty industry is expected to grow anywhere from 8-11% by 2028, and beauty specialists with a diverse set of skills could thrive in their field! Learn more about the courses you’re passionate about by contacting us, we can’t wait to tell you more!

We’re a ‘People Industry’

How much does your stylist know about you? If you’ve been seeing them for a while, there’s a chance it’s probably a lot! The beauty industry is very social, and it all starts with your education. When you enroll at Phagans School of Hair Design, you’re not just there to learn, you’re there to make friends! We’ve been open for over 70 years, so we take our family culture very seriously. Building strong connections with your peers and instructors during school can help you after graduation. Your beauty skills are important, but so are your people skills. Building a strong client base can take confidence, good communication skills, and the connections you’ll make during your time with us.

Just like we care about our students, we care about our community too! We want to give our students every opportunity to get involved with our community and continue building their network of friends and coworkers. We participate in fashion shows, photoshoots, the Rose Festival, and we partner with non-profit organizations every year. We believe that giving back to our community is essential to helping our students grow confidence and be successful!
