In the School's Words

Launch your cosmetology career in California's beautiful San Joaquin Valley. Our 13,000-square-foot facility is located in Modesto, a warm and friendly city that combines a hometown feel with metropolitan amenities.

Located on the Tuolomne River, Modesto's central location provides easy access to the ocean, mountains, and much more. The city is just an hour and a half from California's capital, Sacramento, and only two hours from San Jose and San Francisco. It's also within easy driving distance of some of American's most beautiful sights, including the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Yosemite National Park, and Lake Tahoe.

Modesto's mild climate lends itself to year-round activities like river rafting, hiking, jet skiing, and golf. For those who prefer less active pursuits, the city is home to the Modesto Nuts minor league baseball team, the critically acclaimed musical group Grandaddy, the E & J Gallo Winery, and the McHenry Mansion.

With a motto of "Water, Wealth, Contentment, Health," Modesto offers the opportunity to nurture your new career as well as yourself. Come join us-we're waiting to welcome you!

A multitude of exciting career choices await the professional cosmetologist. You can design high-fashion hair for the runway, become a celebrity stylist, or work in print photography, television, opera, theater, ballet, or film. As your career progresses, you can become a platform artist, salon or spa manager or owner, educator, manufacturing consultant or artistic director, or retail specialist.


THE COSMETOLOGY PROGRAM features design, cutting, coloring, multicultural techniques, makeup, fashion trends, and the art of hairdressing in a three-phase program we call CORE, ADAPTIVE, and CREATIVE.

In CORE, you'll learn the basics that will let you confidently begin working with guests. ADAPTIVE builds on the first phase and adds time management, professional service and retailing skills, and the art of successful communication. The final phase, CREATIVE, takes you through advanced hairdressing and chemical work.
