TONI&GUY Cosmetology Kit

To assist you in your education, our cosmetology school offers a student kit loaded with learning materials and professional-quality gear. If it will help you become a beauty professional or make someone’s hair look great, it’s in the kit – everything from shears, hair brushes, and irons to mannequin heads, step-by-step tutorials, and so much more!

Our Cosmetology Classes

The small, structured cosmetology classes at our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy are the venue in which students discuss theory and begin developing their skills. They are taught to approach hairstyling and client work creatively by becoming technically proficient in both haircutting and hair colouring and learning how to combine techniques. In addition to these technical skills, soft skills (like client relations) are also part of the cosmetology curriculum. Our focus is to teach young hairdressers-in-training how to cut and colour hair so they are confident working behind a chair fulfilling any request of a salon client.

Cosmetology Career Preparation

At our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy, we know that real-world experience often leads to real-world success for our aspiring beauty professionals. This is why delivering hands-on hair services to salon clients in a true salon environment is such a large part of our cosmetology program.

Our cosmetology school graduates frequently and unsurprisingly go on to become successful salon hair stylists. However, with such a richly diverse (and ever-changing) industry, our graduates also hold positions as editorial stylists, mobile hairdressers, and runway/fashion show hairdressers, as well as hair colouring, hair cutting, and hair extension specialists. After gaining a few years of industry experience, some of our cosmetology school graduates have even moved on to become knowledgeable cosmetology instructors intent on mentoring the next generation of beauty professionals.
