Summit Salon Academy was founded in 2006, originally named The Salon Professional Academy, by a group of highly trained and certified cosmetologists dedicated to making a difference in the lives of students. In our 10+ years of teaching, we’ve trained well over 800 cosmetologists, estheticians, and nail techs. Our former students have gone on to become salon owners, successful stylists, and leaders in the beauty industry.


Our Approach

We think the best learning environment is one where students are actively engaged, where they learn with real-world case studies, and where everyone knows each other. We’ve designed a course around interactive materials with the visual learner in mind. Our class sizes are purposely kept small to make sure that our students feel at home and get the attention they deserve.

The program isn’t limited just to the art of cosmetology. We strive to change lives, which means we want our graduates to have the best chance at success. Our program also teaches our students about the business skills they’ll need to be successful in the beauty industry.
