What does CAofB stand for?

CAofB = Career Academy of Beauty

After 50 years of being a premier school in Orange County, a lot of graduates and beauty professionals referred to us as “CA of B” so we owned it and created a new identity. If you look at the Career Academy of Beauty logo you’ll find the “CAofB” icon within the center, like a heart beating for the logo. The brand identity and positioning were intentional, as we are a private, family run school, that cares about our students future. You’ll see that we are proud of our heritage and work harder for our students. We have the privilege to start and launch students careers in one of the most exciting industries. Truly we live by our slogan, “beauty starts here®.”

When do classes start?

Most classes start the second Tuesday of every month. Classes are known to fill quickly so please enroll as soon as possible.

Do you offer job placement?

Absolutely. Our goal is to make sure that all graduates find the job that best suits them. We provide current listings of available positions within salons, spas and other beauty employers that are looking to recruit CAofB students.
