There are many opportunities available in the cosmetology industry. A licensed cosmetologist can be an employee at a salon or you can be your own boss by renting a suite from a salon owner. After 3 years in the industry you could train to be a Cosmetology instructor. Product companies hire cosmetologists to travel to different places to be a product educator. You could also own your own salon. The possibilities are endless.
"I’m always speaking so highly of the school and staff and to this day! I made the right decision by choosing to attend Career Academy of Beauty. Nothing but the best for their students and it is truly appreciated."
"They have helped me reach goals and have helped me start a career I love!"
"I am so glad I chose this school for my beauty career goals and needs."
Cosmetology consists of technical and hands-on practical training in all areas of hair, skin and nails. Students will begin by observing live demonstrations and will also be given specific state approved instructions on step-by-step procedures such as: haircutting, coloring, styling, nail and skin procedures/services.
Upon observation, the student will start by practicing on mannequin heads with human hair. Students will receive technical theory instruction through lectures, videos and guest artists. Students are required to complete textbook assignments and pass multiple choice tests as they work through the chapters of their cosmetology textbook.
After a student completes their 11-week extensive freshman training, they will work on clients to build their skill, speed, and confidence. Students will use skills learned throughout the program, to help real clients with their hair, skin, and makeup. Instructors assist students throughout their floor experience to prepare them for the real salon environment.

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.
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!
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.
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 school a little easier.
