At CAofB we believe that in order for you to be successful you must know more than basic state board requirements. Your education will cover on all skills needed to become a professional, confident hairdresser in a top salon in only 10 ½ months.

70% of our time here will be spent on hands-on training, specifically in haircutting, hairstyling, coloring, advanced weaving techniques, Japanese hair straightening, Brazilian Blowout, perming and hair extensions. We will prepare you with everything you will need for your future salon career.

We are proud to be Orange County’s only Sassoon Connection Academy and offering one of the most well-rounded cosmetology program. In addition to having a well-rounded curriculum, our dedicated staff has years of experience in all areas of cosmetology on-and-off the salon floor. CAofB is not like most beauty schools because we make it our mission to get to know you personally and bring out the best in you.

CAofB uses several professional product lines and incorporates advanced training into each course. Students are trained with professional products, including: Paul Mitchell, Redken, Enjoy, and Pulp Riot. One product line is not always all that you need to achieve the desired style your client asks for. Our well-rounded education will provide you with the resources and tools you need to be successful in any salon.

If you are passionate, friendly, creative and like to work with people, then you will love to be a part of the cosmetology program at CAofB.
