Why Career Academy of Beauty?

The beauty industry is filled with creativity, business sense, and exploring new techniques and trends. That’s what makes the beauty industry so exciting! If you’re looking into beauty school options, you’ll want to check out Career Academy of Beauty and what we have to offer students. We’re one of the leading beauty schools in Orange County and have been educating those passionate about beauty for over 50 years!

Externship Opportunities

Eligible senior students can extern at local salons in place of a regular school day to train under an already successful stylist. This is a great way to gain hands-on experience and learn what is happening in a real working salon.

We have several salons that participate in our externship program. One day a week, our students have real-life floor time in a professional setting. This affords them real-life experience while earning credit towards graduation, as well as what it takes to become a successful professional.

Meet California’s Requirements at Career Academy of Beauty

Students will graduate upon completion of required clock hours, completing/passing all required technical/practical operations, and passing the final examination. Students will receive their diplomas at the graduation ceremony.

To work professionally in the state of California, graduates will be required to pass a state examination for licensing. A final practical and written exam is given to ensure the students are ready for the State Licensing Exam after graduation. Typically if the student is eligible for pre-application they will be able to take the state exam approximately three weeks after graduation.

Job Placement Assistance

Job placement is available for our graduates. CAofB has long-lasting relationships with salon and spa owners looking to recruit our cosmetology graduates. We have a real-time career placement list of salons posted on-premise at our school. In addition, we send out social media alerts to graduates and alumni of upcoming positions. There are typically more jobs available than students graduating at any given time.
