We want to support our students as they work toward their goals as future beauty professionals. At CAofB, we want to give you more than education. We want you to find your place within the beauty community and build a network that can help you thrive during and after school.

We’ve been teaching students like you for 50+ years. After all that time, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to help our students be the best they can be.

Here are a few things you can expect:

Access to Seasoned Beauty Professionals

One of the greatest resources you can have at CAofB is our dedicated educators. Our educators are more than teachers. They have spent years in the beauty industry perfecting their craft. They use their expertise to help students like you reach their full potential as beauty professionals. Our educators can be a great resource to help you reach your cosmetology goals!

Get Hands-on Experience

One of the best ways to learn is by doing. That is why about 70% of your time here will be spent applying what you learn. Whether it be on mannequins in the classroom or clients in the student salon*, you will have opportunities to perfect your skills and prepare for your future.

Cosmetology Schedule

One reason people don’t enroll in cosmetology school is that it doesn’t work with their schedule. At CAofB, we offer a variety of schedules to help you achieve your goals and keep living your life. We have both full-time and part-time schedules. Plus, our part-time schedules have day and night classes. This way, we hope to make attending cosmetology a little easier.
