Hair Professionals Career College has been in Sycamore for over 20 years, and we are proud to be part of the Sycamore-Dekalb community. What a community it is! From historic downtown Sycamore—founded in 1869—to Northern Illinois University just a few miles away, around here we draw strength from our heritage as we build for the future. We love living among the friendly people and the beautiful green fields of northern Illinois.

At our Sycamore Campus, our cosmetology and esthetics programs combine big-city style and small-town heart for a truly one-of-a-kind experience. On the outside, our school is a quaint red-brick building with plenty of parking for students and salon visitors. On the inside, our recently renovated school echoes high-end salons, with a modern reception area and spacious spa and salon workspaces. Woven through it all is our desire to help—help students learn and help guests look and feel better than they did when they walked through our doors!
Located right on the border between Sycamore and Dekalb, we’re in the heart of two college towns. Which is great because there is always something going on! In football season, you can catch us at a Huskie’s game cheering for the home team. When we’re feeling hungry, we’ll head over to Betty Jean’s Soul Food Diner for some American-style comfort food, or we’ll go to Jamrah Middle Eastern Cuisine or Thai Pavilion Restaurant if we’re feeling adventurous!
Our students come from all over Dekalb county, including Sycamore, Dekalb, Rochelle, Creston, Malta, Genoa, Kingston, Burlington, Elburn, Batavia, St. Charles, and Waterman. Don’t see your hometown on the list? You could be the first!
Because of our unique approach, we have many clients who have been coming to our full-service student salon* for years. We’re always happy to welcome a new face, though! One of our favorite things about having students from our local community is that their friends and family can come in for a haircut or facial. We’re also a very affordable option for the many college students in the area living on limited budgets. Our student salon* is open Tuesday-Saturday, so go ahead and call us to schedule an appointment today!
*All Services Performed By Students Under the Supervision of Licensed Instructors.
Our student salon* isn’t open on Sunday or Monday, but our admissions staff will work with you to find a time to meet—any day of the week! If you’re interested in learning more about becoming a student, please contact us online or give us a call. Your future in beauty could be closer than you think!
