A Paul Mitchell Partner School
Vanguard College of Metairie

Located in the former headquarters of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, the Vanguard of Metairie campus resides on Hessmer Avenue, just two blocks from the largest shopping center in the New Orleans metro area, Lakeside Mall. Our modern, open, and spacious campus encompasses a sprawling 22,000 square feet of education and clinic space within a three-story building.

As a Paul Mitchell Partner School, we strive to draw out the artist in our Future Professionals and prepare them for success in a professional salon environment. Our talented faculty and staff work at peak levels, inspired by a shared purpose, a spirit of partnership, and an overwhelming sense of unity and pride. Future Professionals will receive extensive hands-on and classroom training in design, cutting, coloring, multicultural techniques, makeup, and the science of bone structure and facial shape adaptability.
