At American Beauty School you will receive instruction in both theory and fundamental skills. The curriculum will provide a good foundation for a career in the industry and prepare students to take the New York State licensing exam. Classes are available in both English and Spanish.
The American Beauty School is a 9000 sq. foot facility on two floors – designed with the student in mind. We have a student cafeteria, workrooms, classrooms and a 2000 sq. foot student clinic located on the ground floor – so that students can have hands-on training practicing on real clients before entering a salon.
At the current time the American Beauty School does not offer the Esthetics Certificate Program. Esthetician programs teach esthetics students how to do facials, waxing, body wraps, anti-aging treatments, facial massages and more. Some of these topics are covered within our Cosmetology Certificate Program. Please refer to that page for more information.
