We are extremely proud to be a Pivot Point member school. Internationally known and respected, Pivot Point brings together some of the most creative and forward thinking minds in the industry. The training our Educational staff receives and the tools Pivot Point offers; such as their exclusive member schools only Designers’ Approach Library, L.A.B. (Learn About Beauty) and Snap Cap mannequins ensure that you receive educational excellence. The methods are easily understood and learned and are the foundation upon which you will build your techniques. These exclusive methods are based on the philosophies of The Bauhaus, the most celebrated art school of modern times. Through these same philosophies, our students learn to be more than Cosmetologists — they learn to become hair designers, offering you a career where you enjoy both creativity and freedom.
