A State-of-the-Art Curriculum...

The reason students attend Atelier Academy and the most elite salons hire our graduates? We offer a superior education.

With our industry-leading partners and instructors, and an unmatched student-to-teacher ratio, we are able to graduate hairstylists whom high-end salons are recruiting before they even graduate.

Simply put, students in our hair technician program are immersed in their hair skills and experience. In nine short weeks, Atelier students are on the clinic floor taking multiple appointments a day with real-life clients (under supervision, of course). In less than a 6 months, they are able to graduate and dominate state boards and launch careers in high-end salons.

What to Expect:

Atelier Academy is seeking students who are serious about their careers, because we're serious about producing top-of-the-line students. Because our student-teacher ratio is low, we work with students who are driven to work, learn and succeed.

Daily life is a mixture of classroom instruction and hands-on training on mannequins, models and real-world clients. Expect individual attention from your instructors, all of your questions answered quickly and thoroughly, and have their teaching methods adjusted to your learning style and speed. At the same time, we recognize that many students learn best when no one is watching, and they will also be able to learn and express creativity through independent exploration.

How much time will be spent in a classroom versus on the floor? How much time will be spent in independent learning versus one-on-one coaching? That all depends on you!
