Cosmetology and Cosmetology & Advanced Program


Although some people still refer to Hairdressers as “Beauticians”, that stereotype has long disappeared. The future Hairdressers that Toledo Academy of Beauty trains today are intelligent, Depositphotos_24592885_l_300pxenterprising, creative and focused individuals. And we have just the curriculum for this.

We teach like the great masters from Europe taught hairdressing, with as much hands-on, learn by doing and one-on-one instruction as possible. Some schools think Ipads and YouTube Videos can replace educators, but we know better.

And we waste no time in getting your hands wet (not just an expression!) Imagine during your first weeks of school you’re doing a haircut on a manikin, applying color, performing updo and wedding styles taught by a nationally recognized Guest Artist (a Toledo Academy of Beauty exclusive) or just being treated to a facial or body treatment from our “spa” department.

This dynamic curriculum along with our Best in Business (Advanced Program) all in a gorgeous state-of-the-art facility are just some of the reasons why successful salon owners call us almost every week looking to hire our graduates.

As we stated before, Toledo Academy of Beauty is not part of a corporate franchise like Summit Salon Academy (Redken), Salon Institute (TiGi) or Paul Mitchell or Aveda that pushes one product line. We call that brain/brand washing.

Instead, we offer a wide range of professional product lines and methods. Check out our impressive list of Partners below.
