Our cosmetology program focuses on learning 11 classics cuts and 9 color techniques with basic instruction in makeup and skin care. We also provide our students with valuable personal and professional development, product knowledge and a salon experience.
Long known to the residents of Santa Monica and Los Angeles as Hawthorne Beauty School, we were honored to become a TONI&GUY® Hairdressing Academy in 2008. In 2017 the school moved from Santa Monica to a new location on Fairfax. On the inside our design showcases the history and collections of TONI&GUY in a way that is meant to inspire.
In order to keep our cosmetology school stylishly current and on-trend, we also update the interior of our school and student salon every few years! One thing that does not change, however, is the quality of our cosmetology program and other beauty profession-related courses. Our instructors have real-world experience in the beauty industry and have also attended an accredited hair design school or hair stylist school.
“My experience with TONI&GUY taught me the importance of technical discipline, while providing access and exposure to the renowned creative talents of the company.”
Leaning on over 150 combined years of industry and educational experience, our team of beauty experts knows how to transform talent and passion into skill and devotion. Not your typical cosmetology education, our unique combination of teaching methods that include demonstration, discussion, practice, and more, results in cosmetology school graduates who can feel prepared for a future in the beauty industry.
