Student and instructor working togetherWhy Career Academy of Beauty?

When our students invest effort into achieving their dreams, we invest in helping them be the best beauty professionals they can be. We want your time here to be more than educational. We want it to be meaningful in as many ways as possible!

Here are a few reasons we stand out:

Learning from Beauty Industry Experts

Our educators have had years of experience in the beauty industry. Not only teaching students but working with clients in salons and spas. Our educators understand their students because they were once students as well. They want to help you succeed. Let these beauty experts be your guide in building your beautiful future!

Not only do we have dedicated experts, but we also have a large network of beauty industry experts. With 50+ years of experience educating beauty professionals, we have developed amazing relationships with many stylists, salons, and spas. These industry experts often visit our school to educate our students through demonstrations and workshops.

Seize the opportunity to learn from these amazing professionals and learn more today!

Extensive Hands-on Training

We know sitting in a large lecture hall is not the best way to learn, especially for future estheticians. CAofB believes that 75% of your training needs to be hands-on practice* in our specially designed esthetic department to have great skin care techniques.

Often, college grads feel underprepared for employment after college. We don’t want our students to feel that way. With this hands-on experience, you can feel more confident when entering the workforce. Feel prepared and stand out to employers!

Trail Blazers

At CAofB we know that basic State Board skin training is not enough. CAofB was the first innovator of specialized skincare training in Orange County. With this training, we can prepare our students for a variety of careers. From spa treatments to waxing, we want our students to blaze their trails with the skills they’ve learned at CAofB.
