A Well-Rounded Spa Program

Do you dream of working in a spa setting? Do you have a passion for skincare and want to help people achieve their skincare goals? At International Academy, our full specialty program is a balanced program of skin care, hair removal, spa training, nail technology, and more! If you’re ready to improve your life with a beauty education, then our Florida beauty school might just be right for you.

Our Full Specialty Training

We developed our full specialty program with an emphasis on spa techniques. It is our hope that by the time you graduate, you feel prepared to enter a spa setting. Our program is broken up into three sections:

Skin Care/Hair Removal/Spa Training: Dive into the world of skincare by learning the latest techniques spa specialists are using. During this section, you can learn hair removal, skin theory, product chemistry, and more!

Nail Technology: Learn the art of nails with our nail technology section. During this portion, you’ll learn more than just manicures and pedicures. You can also learn sculpting, gel nails, and fill-ins, all so you can gain a good foundation for nails.

Facial Beauty Amplifications: During our facial beauty sections, you can learn all about makeup application, such as brow shaping, eyelash extensions, and microblading!

Get ready to do what you love. At International Academy, it is our goal to help our students succeed in their education and their careers.

I searched for six months looking for a school where I could learn cosmetology and fully learn esthetics in the same place. When I finally found International Academy, I thought it was too good to be true. The Administration was so caring and attentive to anything that I needed to make my transition to Daytona and into school as easy as possible. Also, the facilities at International Academy are amazing! The equipment and products that we trained with are of the highest quality. The equipment in the school spa is more up-to-date and high-tech than many of the professional spas out there today. I feel like International Academy has thoroughly prepared me to be one of the best in the beauty industry!
