Its about the journey…I graduated from Intl Academy with a strong foundation in cosmetology as a stylist and an educator now over 10years. I am proud to help cultivate and inspire the beauty within us all and visually express it to the world.

With the education I received from International I quickly advanced in the industry. After graduation I quickly surpassed colleagues in my salon and moved into management after six months. After only three years I was able to open my own salon which has been very successful. All of this has been possible because of International Academy!

Denise L.

International Academy provided me with a strong educational and professional foundation in which I have been able to build upon. My goal has been to elevate myself and others to new levels of success and to show cosmetology graduates that anything is possible in our industry.

. . . I began working in the field of beautification as a professional licensed Barber three years ago. This is the job for me, I've grown a clientele that is similar to my viewpoints, humor, and generally good people that you want to surround yourself with. This has by far been the best decision of my life professionally for my mental health, financial security, and general happiness. I never saw it coming and couldn't be happier for it.
