Our beauty school curriculum is one of the best in the state of Utah. Our students get more clinic floor time than the big name beauty schools in the state. We keep our classes small so that you get the attention you deserve and when you graduate you will be prepared for success as a cosmetologist.

You get more hands-on experience and we teach you through our Nuts and Bolts Business Training other ways to maximize your income while providing better service to clients. It’s a win-win for everyone! In addition, we offer a wholesome environment, a rarity in this field, which helps you to focus on your education so that salon and business owners are clamoring to hire you because of your excellent stylist skills. Come visit us and see the difference that makes our beauty college truly unique.
