Our Partners

As we stated before, we do not affiliate ourselves with one product company (such as Redken, Toni & Guy, Paul Mitchell, Aveda or even Pivot Point).  These types of schools focus on their students to sell their products, taking away the notion “variety is the spice of life”.

Instead, we offer you a wide range of professional product lines and methods which are designed to produce a graduate able to meet the challenges of any salon and spa. Some of the companies we “partner” with who chose Toledo Academy of Beauty to provide quality training to students and staff are:


Foolproof Updoing

A Toledo Academy of Beauty exclusive! We are honored to be selected as the only school in Northwest Ohio and Southeastern Michigan to offer our students an advanced updo/special occasion styling program included along with the cosmetology program.

Prominent stylist, hair designer and national educator Amy Colvin has developed an updo/special occasion styling program which has helped thousands of stylists achieve their own sense of style and fashion to succeed in the salon business. The “Foolproof Updoing” program literally takes the guesswork out of updo styling while allowing endless amounts of unique creativity to show through. What Vidal Sassoon has done for the art of cutting, Amy is doing with the art of updoing.  Amy will personally train every one of our students in the lucrative services of updo/special occasion styling.

Upon completion of this program, students will receive a special certificate showing completion of this program which will help a new stylist’s updo career off soaring.
