Our Reputation

Since 1978, the Academy & Spa is recognized as the Rocky Mountain Regions authority on Hair Fashion and Aesthetics, as evident by our progressive and technical education/curriculum, and our Award Winning Cosmetology Academy and Advanced Training Programs for hundreds of successful individuals.

Cosmetology is a 60 billion dollar industry that is stable, provides endless opportunities and cannot be outsourced to another country. People will always need to have their hair cut. The fast paced world we live in has created the need to connect with others, and find time to be pampered with a salon or spa service.

With proper education, cosmetologists can work anywhere in the country, full-time or part-time, work for a large corporation with several locations, in a local salon, or for themselves as an independent contractor. Last year, there were an estimated 600,000 salon positions filled in the United States. Average salaries range from $35,000-$50,000 per year, and can easily go beyond.
