We believe the number one way to teach our students how to be successful in a salon, barbershop, or spa is to simulate that environment throughout their time at the Academy. Out of this belief, the Academy team developed Salon Realities to create this atmosphere on the educational level.

The student body is divided the into salon teams and challenged with real-life situations they may encounter when working. The teams compete against each other on a monthly basis in the areas of guest count, requests, product sales, and attendance.

Each team is set as a functioning salon including positions of:

Portfolio Building

Portfolios are a crucial part to getting started in the industry. When interviewing, employers will review portfolios to gather knowledge about a candidate’s skills, talents, accomplisments, and reputation as a future professional.

To prepare students with this important tool, portfolio building is incorporated into all levels of coursework. Seniors will complete a well-crafted portfolio with photos, certificates, and other materials that will support their future success as a esthetician.
