Why Choose Us

Setting standards. Students achieving goals.

Original in Vision

While many cosmetology schools teach to the bare minimum for licensure, Atelier Academy breaks the industry mold. With apprentice-style instruction that goes far beyond the basics, our vision is to graduate cosmetologists with elevated skill, experience and confidence. Our priority is education.

Original in Craft

With industry-leading partners like MoroccanOil, Redken and CND, Atelier students are immersed in fashion and beauty culture from their first day. With instructors from top salons, spas and schools, we focus on today’s salon trends and follow the industry’s innovators, leaving old-fashioned instruction and dated techniques behind.

Original in Education

One-on-one classes mean that every student gets a custom education based on his or her learning style. Our experienced teachers can adjust their instruction according to your goals, interests and strengths. Small class sizes mean individual attention, and that our students will never feel bored.

Small But Mighty

Cosmetology school can be a big investment. But we make the decision easy because our instructors are also investing in you. We pride ourselves in our reputation of graduates who go on to the most elite salons in the area, and our small class sizes mean that we can only accept driven, motivated students who can work hard, keep up with the latest trends, and develop a keen eye for style.
