cosmetology school in battle creek michigan teaching hair, skin and nails

The hair, 
the nails, 
the makeup...


The best careers start with passion. If you have a passion for beauty, for making people feel great, for transformation, this may be the career for you. If you do makeovers in your head on the person in front of you in line, this is definitely the career for you!

Our cosmetology students spend 350 hours as a "junior" student, learning the basics of everything hair, skin & nails. You'll practice on manikins and each other. You'll also learn the theory of cuts, colors, nails and makeup.
