MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss announced the honorees during the AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) 2014 convention in Phoenix, Arizona, on November 16.

Honorees were determined based on key criteria in each category, and grouped according to school size or number of locations. Two top honorees were chosen in each category—one individual school location, and a multi-location school organization. Small schools, large schools, chain schools, and single units of chain schools are all represented.

“We received applications from a record-breaking number of cosmetology schools this year and look forward to celebrating all the 2014 Excellence in Education honorees and sharing their stories.  It is truly a great time to pursue a beauty education and career, and the programs at Paul Mitchell Schools exemplify that fact,” MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove says.

Sharing stories of innovation, inspiration, and collaboration from a diverse group of leading schools is an important part of MODERN SALON’s “Excellence in Education” mission, Musgrove explains. “We want to help spread the word about the exceptional work cosmetology schools are doing to help launch beautiful careers. We hope the professional salon industry and their communities will join us in celebrating them.”
