In the School's Words

Your professional hairdressing career awaits!

This is within your reach. And because you take your education seriously, because you are as career-focused as we are, because you already possess qualities of professionalism, punctuality, work ethic, creativity, and have that striking personality, you belong at Salon Institute, TIGI Creative School. In less than 2 years you'll be in the full throes of your cosmetology & hairdressing career. In less than 2 days, you'll be cutting and styling hair!

Program Information

Salon Institute's curriculum leverages the benefits of hands-on learning to enhance a student's confidence level through actual experience. We take pride in giving our students a foundation in TIGI classic cutting and colouring systems and advanced collection work. We also incorporate styling and finishing techniques by editorial styling legends Aquage, and management training by Prosper U. Our fully licensed and deeply experienced educators will have you trying your hand applying just-learned hair cutting and styling techniques to mannequins on your second day of class. In three months, you'll be thoroughly prepared to take on your own clients! By the time you graduate you will have all the knowledge and skill necessary for passing your State Board exam. Since Salon Institute is a working student salon, you will be immersed in an upscale salon environment, surrounded by the people, products, and energy that exemplifies the hairdresser's lifestyle you've chosen.

Small Class Sizes with 1-on-1 Training

We cap our incoming classes at 13 future beauty experts, and strive to have no more than 16 students for 1 educator throughout the program. Many of our students come from a traditional college background where they felt like a number, just one more student in a sea of other students. That's not true here. At Salon Institute, we see individuals with talent. Not just a group of students.

Community Involvement

As a Salon Institute student you'll participate in community events supporting charities and organizations. Use this experience to practice your networking skills and gain valuable contacts in the industry.

Career Services

Our Salon Showcase and Job Fairs put you face to face with salon owners; and you'll be ready to meet them, because you've taken advantage of all the resume-building, interviewing skill practice, and portfolio compilation resources we've made available to you.


We are accredited through the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). Financial Aid is available to students who qualify. To apply for financial aid or to learn more about our Financial Aid Department, please contact us. Your college experience at Salon Institute will be uniquely tailored to suit your career goals and focus.
