Making Your Dream Affordable

Providing a quality education is important to us, which is why we strive to maintain our cosmetology program accreditation. In addition to allowing our students to take advantage of federal financial aid, our accredited cosmetology program can be funded with Florida Prepaid, Veterans Benefits, and outside scholarships. Federal financial aid is available to those who qualify.

More Bang For Your Buck

American Institute of Beauty (AIB) strives to take beauty education to the next level. That’s why we include, as electives, Bella Lash eyelash extensions, hair extensions, and makeup artistry certification training as part of our cosmetology program. You can get advanced training and these certifications while you’re in school.

Placing Careers as a Priority

The success of our students is more important to us than anything else, both in the classroom and after they have graduated from AIB. That’s why we hold events like Career Days to help our students network and join the local family of beauty businesses. This network helps many of our students have job offers before they’ve even graduated!

AIB is a place where you can get the training you need to become a licensed cosmetologist. Our licensed educators with multiple years of experience in the industry have been training students for 15 years because we have a passion for helping people to become successful beauty professionals. We are also a Redken school, which means that our students have the opportunity to learn and work with one of the most popular premier brands in the industry.


Real-world practice is an integral part of helping students to develop the skills they may need as professionals. The student salon provides students with the opportunity to refine their skills and begin to feel comfortable behind the chair before they even graduate. We strive to help the students succeed in the salon by providing licensed cosmetology educators to support and train throughout the entire program. Our educators will be there to give advice on how to interact with clients, tips for beauty techniques, and even what to expect from a career in beauty after graduation.


Our Largo campus is approximately 5 miles from the stunning Old Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, which makes for the perfect place to learn beauty because beauty is all around us! The Tampa Bay area is fantastic for enjoying gorgeous weather, beaches, and more. Our campus offers day and evening class options to help our students balance school with other important things in life. Learning cosmetology in Largo or St. Petersburg can feel like a summer-y vacation every day!
