Salons and barbershops are the kinds of businesses where good work breeds strong loyalty with clients. Once people trust a stylist with their look, it’s hard to get them to go anywhere else. While you might think of a traditional barbershop or salon as the place where you go for this type of cut or style, student salons* can also be a place to go for an amazing experience!

At College of Hair Design we take pride in giving our clients an amazing experience that is unique to your typical barbershop or salon.

The CHD Experience

Coming into CHD is much more than just a routine visit to the salon. Some of the things that make us different are:

  • Connections: Clients love building friendships and connections with students. Many clients will make appointments with the same student until that student graduates. Once this happens, the client will choose a new student so they can watch them grow and mature as a student and a beauty professional.

    This makes the CHD experience more than just getting a haircut. Clients can help our students learn and grow over and over again! This can be a much more rewarding experience for the client. It also allows our students to gain valuable experience in maintaining clientele.

  • Enthusiasm: Another common characteristic among our students is enthusiasm. They are excited and eager to help clients have an extraordinary experience. Many of the students are motivated to do everything in their power to provide the client with the look that they want. As a client, you can feel this energy. It turns a routine visit to the salon or barbershop into something that you, the client, can look forward to.
  • Our Educators: As students perform services for clients, they are in constant contact with our instructors who help guide them. The student, instructor, and client figure out what style or look to shoot for and how to get it just right. This teamwork-oriented environment is unique to beauty schools. As a client, you get to be an active participant in the creative process of hair design. If this is something you haven’t done before, it’s definitely worth trying!
  • Family Heritage: The current owner of CHD, Greg Howard, took over the business from his father who started the company over 50 years ago. The family heritage of CHD is something that is a core part of who we are and what we do. Students, educators, and staff members are all considered part of the CHD family and our goal is to make clients feel that way too. Come visit us and see for yourself!
