Who We Are
We are a small family business cosmetology schools that have been educating students in the cosmetology arts & sciences for over 50 years.
We only offer programs in Hair Design, Esthetics, Barbering, Nail technology & Educator training.
We are clock hour schools, mandated by the State of Oregon to teach a certain number of hours for each program. For example, if a student enrolls Hair Design, Nail technology and Esthetics they must complete 2300 hours, which happens to be the longest "cosmetology" program in the nation.
We are located in Salem, Bend, Medford, Corvallis, Grants Pass and Newport, Oregon.
Our schools range in size from 30-125 students, average size of 56 students. We have an extensive admissions process and do our best to enroll only those that are looking for a career in the professional beauty industry.
Managed growth, with focus on meeting industry needs in our markets and surrounding areas.
The largest demographic of our students is female, around 18-24 years in age. Many, if not most, would not otherwise be able to afford to attend our school without Title IV aid.
We are clock hour schools with extensive hands-on training. We have low teacher to student ratios ~ 1-14.
Our students must complete our program and pass a practical examination and a state administered written licensure examination through the Oregon Health Licensing Agency, Board of Cosmetology.
We are licensed by the Oregon Department of Education. We report our completion, licensure and placement outcomes annually.

We offer discounts to senior citizens guests, free haircuts to members of the military and to any school aged child that cannot afford to get one otherwise.
We participate in cut-a-thons, community fundraisers and charity events. We have raised over $100,000 for National Missing & Exploited Children and the Susan G Komen foundation.
