Since we expanded to the Lakeland area in 2010, it has been our mission to prepare students in the area for success in their chosen fields. We’re proud to be part of such a vibrant, engaged community and we’re glad our students can be a part of it. We’re also proud to be providing a learning environment with modern equipment where students have the opportunity to truly hone their skills.
In the late 2000s when we were looking for a place to expand to, we found ourselves drawn to Lakeland. There was a vibrance and energy to the community that was infectious. The decade since has only made us love it more! We enjoy the monthly First Friday events, the weekly Farmers Market, and, of course, the 38 different lakes that give the city its name. Lakeland’s vibrant community is an excellent backdrop to our education, as it allows our students to not only study beauty and wellness but also be part of an engaged community.
We knew when we came to Lakeland that we wanted our school to be an environment that matched the caliber of our programs. Our 9,800-square-foot school was made to support the diverse programs we offer. With contemporary design and modern equipment, our students learn and practice in areas that imitate the salons and spas that many of our graduates go on to work in*. Whether a student is studying cosmetology, massage therapy, skin care, or nails, our school was designed to help them pursue the future they want.
*Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy cannot guarantee employment for any graduate.
When we say that students are our top priority, we really mean it. Before we make any decision, we first consider how it will affect our students. This student focus was present when we decided to open our school in Lakeland, it was there when we designed the school spaces, and it’s there every day that we teach our students. We are here to help our students overcome fears or obstacles that might be holding them back from pursuing their beauty education!
We know that our students often have busy, complicated lives, so we do everything we can to ensure our programs help our students get from where they are to where they want to go. This starts with skilled instructors who are required to regularly complete continuing education courses and extends through each program to the career services we offer, including resume preparation, mock interviews, and career fairs. At Artistic, we want you to know that you matter and we want to help you achieve your goals!

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
