How We Teach

Are you a visual learner? Do you learn best hands-on? We celebrate all learning styles! Our classes combine hands-on instruction with live demos and lectures, multimedia, video (including video and even music!) so that everybody learns and has fun.

“The way they teach, they make sure everybody is learning. They're always getting you up and moving, making learning fun and really hands-on.”

Our Beauty Instructors

Whether you’re giving your first haircut or color service, building your clientele or preparing for the state board examination, our teachers—we call them Learning Leaders—are here to guide you every step of the way as you develop your unique style as an artist.


The beauty industry—and the technology that supports it—is growing. That’s why we connect our students to the Paul Mitchell Schools online portal and proprietary mobile apps, and provide state-of-the-art tools from our Paul Mitchell line which has been leading the industry for more than 40 years.
