Our Cosmetology Program

About the Program

At Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy, our students don’t just work on mannequin heads– they get to practice their skills on real guests under the supervision of licensed professionals. Additionally, students are exposed to a wide variety of product lines since we are not a branded school.

For 25 years Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy has provided students with the cosmetology education they need for success in the beauty industry. With a high student-to-teacher ratio, experienced educators can provide students one-on-one attention in the classroom and in the student salon.

Where Hard Work Meets Fun

We’ve created a supportive environment where every student can grow their skills and express their individuality. Beauty school involves a lot of hard work, but we also want everyone to have fun! Whether it’s a party at the school or a community event, we want to give our students even more reason to come back every day.

The beauty industry is exciting. It’s dynamic and constantly evolving. We want to make sure that enthusiasm shines through in our cosmetology program!

My time at Artistic Nails and Beauty Academy has been quite a learning experience. I've met some nice people who were always willing to help me out when I had any questions. I never felt out of place or out of the loop with anything. From the Instructors down to the students, I always felt I had a friend. My experience at ANBA has been one to remember.

- Ruben – Massage Therapy

Artistic Nails and Beauty has given me the opportunity to achieve my dreams while attending school in a fun, eventful environment. Instructors and staff are hand on and very informative. ANAB Academy has overall helped me perfect my skills and become more educated in my field of study. I now feel confident to utilize what I have learned in the working field.

- Elizabeth – Full Specialist

My time at ANAB has been a great learning experience and has been a great new start for me. All staff is very helpful, full of ideas and will help you with as much as they can. To me ANBA is a fun environment. On each holiday, they do something creative to celebrate, food, dress up or a competitive competition. It's a great school to come to if you're ready for a change on life and a kick start on being creative in your career.

- Ashley – Full Specialist

Artistic Nails & Beauty is on of my biggest life changing moments. The staff is so eager to be supportive and very helpful. I so love the productiveness of the receptionist Tamara, she makes my day very well. I love my school and really recommend this to anyone!
