From Start to Finish

Salon Institute came to be through a passionate desire to provide high-quality education to serious, career-minded people interested in the cosmetology industry.

We wanted to cater to highly motivated, creative individuals eager to become ingrained in the world of fashion through education, hands-on training, real world experience including fashion shows, portfolio-building photo shoots, networking events, and charity work.

Salon Institute provides top caliber education that prepares graduates to not only pass their State Boards, but with the skill sets and resources needed to open and manage their own business.

We’ve built an educational institution housed in an upscale salon environment for maximum learning opportunities. And we’ve developed class schedule options understanding the need many students have for flexibility. Tuition costs are kept competitive with other schools in the area, and our admissions and financial aid specialists work diligently to help students process applications and financial aid paperwork.

In and out of the classroom, utilizing tablets with electronic curriculum, text books, video, demonstrations, mannequins, and real clients, students receive the comprehensive Cosmetology Manager training necessary to excel in their career. And we cheer each other on.

The supportive team climate only enhances each student’s motivation and confidence and teaches them the importance of teamwork and collaboration.

It’s time for you to grab a hold of the fashion career you’ve always wanted. Whether you’re in the Columbus, OH or Toledo, OH areas, Salon Institute is waiting for you to experience us!
