Separating us from all other beauty schools, we offer a unique copywritten curriculum designed by cosmetologist Thomas Ciarniello, one of our original partners and holder of a master’s degree in art. With a dream to create trendsetting stylists, he developed this curriculum upon his firm belief that beauty and creativity go hand-in-hand. For our students, this means they’ll get the chance to explore the connection between beauty and art through courses such as painting, sculpting, poetry, collage, and more.
What’s more, we strive to meet each type of learner’s needs by utilizing the 4MAT® testing and teaching methodology across all of our programs. This enables our students to discover how they learn best, and in turn, they can tailor their education to the best teaching methods for them. It also encourages creativity and engages all learning styles, allowing students to integrate and experience the knowledge that will guide their careers for years to come.
