Where Beauty Begins

Whether it’s interactive learning on electronic devices, state-of-the-art classroom projectors, or the latest in hair color innovation, Metro is ready to bring it to you. Beauty, wellness, and technology are industries in which something new is always around the corner.
Metro Beauty Academy bridges all three. Things are always changing here, and we encourage our beauty school students to change and grow with us.
Pivot Point is an all-in-one digital textbook and learning platform.
Metro Beauty Academy makes use of the Pivot Point digital learning platform to connect with students, facilitate learning, and provide additional resources. Students can sign up for classes, track their academic progress, and keep track of school events all in one, convenient location.
Metro Beauty Academy partners with high-quality, internationally recognized brands to provide our students with the premier educational experience they need to thrive in the ever-changing field of cosmetology.
Employment of hairdressers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists is projected to grow 13 percent from 2012 to 2022. Demand for hair coloring, hair straightening, and other advanced hair treatments has risen in recent years, a trend that is expected to continue over the coming decade.

Students will learn from the Salon Fundamentals text books (published by award-winning Pivot Point International) utilizing both the online text book as well as engaging in classroom discussion. Students will also gain the broad-based foundation to become a “whole” stylist through extensive practice with mannequins and regular clients.
From the beginning, you will quickly become comfortable with shampooing techniques and cutting all hair types from curly and coarse to fine and straight. You’ll learn the ins and outs of every salon tool and familiarize yourself with the proper sanitation efforts and salon hygiene.
As you proceed in your studies, coloring and texturizing concepts and procedures will become second nature. Advancing further, you will learn esthetic services like skin treatments and makeup application. Metro Beauty Academy will also prepare you with adequate knowledge on nail techniques such as manicures, pedicures and artificial nail application.
How’s that for comprehensive?
Students will apply their classroom training on Metro Beauty Academy’s visiting clients in its chic and upbeat student salon. Not only will you gain knowledge through lectures and demonstrations, but you are introduced to the salon environment within no time.
