About Salon Institute

Salon Institute began with an idea. An important idea. That Beauty school isn’t just some last resort. It isn’t about settling or because there’s nothing better. Becoming a cosmetologist is an extremely exciting, competitive career that requires a level of hard work, talent, perseverance, creative energy, and industry acumen that rivals other high-power careers.

It’s about your dreams, your passion, your future.

In 2015, we strengthened our relationship with TIGI, solidifying the nickname we have earned over the years as “the TIGI school”. We are proud of this enhanced partnership and all the opportunities it gives our current students and alumni. Salon Institute is headquartered in Toledo, OH with a staff of dozens, including teachers, admissions counselors, financial aid specialists, and support personnel. Our newest Beauty School location in Columbus, OH is currently open to tours so you can see for yourself what makes the Salon Institute so different.

We’ve worked hard to ensure our students lack for nothing in the way of curriculum and support. And whether we are on a college campus readying cheerleaders for a show, networking and supporting community events, or dazzling during our own fashion show, each student is immersed in practical and hands-on training that will ready them for wherever they want their Beauty career to take them!

Because our focus is on the student who does not take a career in cosmetology lightly, we’ve created high-level programs and developed resources that will enable each student to achieve their highest level of potential.

We are actively engaged in the community we serve partnering with the University of Toledo Cheerleaders, Relay for Life, and America’s Next Top Model, and other local charities and associations.

Salon Institute is proud to hold accreditation through the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS).
