Beauty School Is Different Than Your Average College

Four years can seem like a long time to spend in school! If you’re hoping to get working sooner, beauty school might be a great fit for you. Our programs take, on average, anywhere from 15 weeks to around 13 months. You could be starting on your future career much faster than if you had attended a four-year college.

Beauty schools also offer a closer, family environment. At Elite Academy of Cosmetology, we value our student’s success and have the ability to work closely with them. When our students are successful, we feel successful. Our students receive a mix of theory work and hands-on practical experience in our student clinics*. When classrooms are smaller than a lecture hall, it’s much easier to ensure each student is being guided towards their future in the beauty industry.

Programs That Fit You

At Elite Academy of Cosmetology, we offer five courses in beauty to fit your passions! You could have the opportunity to study the following programs:

What are you most passionate about? If you’re drawn to styling, cutting, and coloring hair, you might want to consider our cosmetology or barbering programs. If you’re leaning more towards skincare, makeup, and waxing, esthetics might be perfect for you! For those inspired by beautiful nails, read more about our nail technician program to see if it’s the right fit for you. Every realm of beauty offers fulfillment in socializing, building your own schedule, and helping others!

We also offer our instructor program! For those who are already licensed and as equally excited about beauty as they are about inspiring others, becoming a beauty instructor could be a very rewarding career. Becoming an instructor is more than just teaching, it involves giving back to a community that taught you. The future of the beauty industry relies on impassioned people who can guide students through their time in school and onto their own rewarding careers.

Beauty is a Growing Profession

The beauty industry is growing, and professionals are in demand! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the projected job growth for barbers, hair stylists, and cosmetologists by 2028 is 8%, which is faster than the average for all occupations. For skincare specialists, employment is projected to grow 11 percent by 2028. With this growth, now might be a great time to start on your future career! Beauty takes dedication, and if you’re willing to commit to school, furthering your education, and searching for a job that makes you happy, take the next step with us!
