Our staff bring unique experiences that can help our students become better beauty professionals, and we bring in guest educators for demonstrations as often as we can. We have hosted educators from Sebastian, Sassoon, and more to keep our education current and to help our students gain perspective from some of the leading brands in the industry. We bring in guest artists that we believe will help our students elevate their skills!

A School Built For

You practice how you play, and that’s why Hair Professionals Career College strives to maintain a modern, professional facility for our students to learn and practice in. Our campuses have been recently remodeled to look and feel like a real salon and less like a classroom. This environment helps both our students, as well as our clientele. When you’re in the chair you won’t realize you’re in a beauty school!
