At International Academy, we consider ourselves a Beauty and Wellness School. And it’s not one size fits all. We have plenty of programs to choose from! We have these program options to give our students a chance to really narrow down what their interests are and choose a program that fits it.
The beauty industry also has many career options to choose from. It’s forever growing and the job outlook is expected to grow 11% by the year 2031. Going to a beauty and wellness school means that you have a lot of career options to choose from:
- Hair Stylist

- Hair removal specialist
- Beauty sales rep
- Salon manager
- Nail technician
- Massage therapist
- Spa therapist
- And so much more!
These careers will take you as far as you want to go. If you are ambitious, you can do anything you set your mind to!
Let Your Creativity Shine
As a student, you’ll be able to let your creativity shine! You can find new ways to express yourself by making others look and feel their best. You can cut hair in new ways, paint a fun design on nails, and get creative when applying makeup. You’re the artist and your clients are the canvas. When your life revolves around beauty, your life can never be dull.
Learn Important Skills
Not only do you learn skills related to beauty, but you can also learn important life skills along the way! We believe in not only teaching our students skills related to their program, but skills that they can carry on throughout. While you’re in beauty school you’ll have a chance to learn the following:
- Time management
- Business skills
- Social media
- Customer service
- Problem solving
- Attention to detail
- Management skills
- Ownership information
- HR skills
- And more!
Our mission is to equip every individual with not only the technical skills they’ll need in their chosen career, but also with the business skills needed. We have found that most of our graduates want to own their own salon/barbershop after they graduate. We believe that if our students know these skills, they’ll be more successful as they pursue their goals. If our students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to be successful, they will make less catastrophic mistakes than can cost them money and their business.
Beauty and Wellness School Is Shorter Than Traditional School
When thinking about going back to school, most people often assume it will be another 4 years. At International Academy, you can graduate in as little as 2.5 months – depending on the program you choose. We have both full-time and part-time schedules so you can take it at your own pace. This gives you a chance to get into the workforce faster, making an income and building your career.
You’ll Work With Amazing People
If you love beauty, then you’ll love being surrounded by other individuals who also share the same passion! Our instructors want nothing but the best for their students and will help you grow in your passion. Many students become close friends with other members of their class and it can create long lasting friendships. It’s not hard making friends when everyone has so much in common!
You’ll Make A Difference In Someone’s Life
The beauty industry is a highly rewarding profession. When a client sits down in your chair, you become a friend. You’ll be able to put a smile on their face by providing them with a whole new look and you’ll be someone they can confide in! Nothing is better than providing someone with the confidence a new look gives.
