Faculty & Staff

Our faculty is experienced, professional, and committed to your success. They will take the time to get to know you, understand your learning style, and help you achieve your goals.

An important part of our personalized learning approach is small class sizes so students receive generous one-on-one training with our gifted instructors. For Cosmetology and Barbering, the College provides one instructor for every 15 students. For Esthetics, we provide one instructor for every 6 students.

Our instructors have an average of 15 years of professional experience in the field and are well equipped to teach our students the classic and cutting-edge techniques they need to succeed.
