"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."
One of the most exciting parts of the beauty industry is the variety of different services you can learn. Our cosmo/barber program is for students wanting to learn the art of cosmetology and the technical skill of barbering.
Students will start by learning up-to-date techniques and theory in a classroom setting. Once students have completed a certain amount of classroom hours, they’ll advance to the clinic floor where they will get the opportunity to build their skills and confidence on clients who come to our student salon. Our instructors assist students while working on clients to prepare them for a real salon setting.
At CAofB we’re one of the leading beauty schools in Orange County and have been educating those passionate about beauty for over 50 years. We understand your passion and want to help you reach your career goals.

We understand everyone learns differently. That’s why we use an online learning platform by Milady that gives our students the option to pick the best method of study. Students may choose the activities, quizzes, videos, and flashcards they use. In the classroom, students will have live interactive lectures, with visual aids such as power-points, videos, note-taking, group discussions, role play, problem-solving, presentation, and more.
One of the best ways to learn is by doing. That is why the majority of your time here will be spent applying what you learn. To help build confidence before stepping onto the salon floor, you’ll be able to practice your skill on mannequins and models. Once you’re ready, you’ll be able to build your skills on the clinic floor with the expertise of our instructors.
