What programs do you offer?

At Hair Arts Institute, we’re all about helping people achieve their hair goals. That is why we offer programs in both cosmetology and barbering. You can read more about what you can learn in these programs by visiting the program pages on this site.

What is your mission?

We want to inspire our students to be their very best and make the world a more beautiful place. We’ve created a campus where you can learn in a safe and nurturing environment. We aspire to leave a legacy of beauty and impactful learning.

Why should I take a tour of the school?

When you commit to getting an education in cosmetology or barbering, you will be spending a lot of time at school. You deserve to learn in a place that fits your style and allows you to thrive and grow. The best way to determine if Hair Arts Institute is right for you is to walk our halls, meet our team and see what time at school is like for our current students. Fill out a form on our site and we will reach out to answer your questions and schedule a time for you to come to our campus.

What are the graduation requirements?

Students must meet the following requirements in the applicable program of study to qualify for graduation and be issued a certified Final Transcript of Hours and Diploma:

  • Successful completion of all levels of study, required hours, required tests, practical projects, and assigned guest services.

Do you offer financial aid?

Yes! At Hair Arts Institute, we are proud to offer financial aid to those who qualify. For more information, chat with our team so you can learn what your options are to fund your education!

Do you offer employment assistance?

While the Hair Arts Institute cannot guarantee employment for graduates, assistance in finding suitable employment is provided by posting area job openings. Our students also receive classroom training on how to write a resume, complete an employment application, and prepare for an effective interview. This is an excellent opportunity for students to obtain professional salon exposure, secure future employment, and easily transition from school to work.

  • If you’re transferring hours from another school, Hair Arts Institute will accept up to 1200 hours and you’ll be asked to request a transcript from the previous institution. Tuition and hourly credit will be allowed as verified by the transcript.
  • If the prospective student is transferring instructional hours from a school in another state, the instruction provided must be recognized and accepted by the State Board of Cosmetology and Barbering toward the course offered by Hair Arts Institute.
  • Transfer Students will not be allowed to enroll until they have officially terminated their enrollment at their previous school. Tuition and hourly credit will be allowed as verified by the transcript.
