American Institute of Beauty is proud to offer a variety of beauty programs including cosmetology, nail technology, full specialist, and skin care to the Largo, FL / Clearwater, FL area. We opened our doors in 2003 and haven’t stopped pursuing our passion for education since. If you have a love for the beauty industry, we want to help you make it a career!
The Largo campus has 36 stations, an amazing makeup room, and a fabulous area for our skin care and clinical esthetics students to practice their skills. This campus is truly Instagram worthy, with glamorous backdrops and well-lit areas to snap the perfect pics of your clients. We’ve created this space to help our students feel at home in a spa or salon after they graduate.
Our educators are industry professionals who love beauty as much as you do! Because they often still work in local spas and salons, they are always exposed to the latest trends and styles. As a result, our students learn from real life professionals who are encountering and mastering the latest and greatest in their fields. At AIB, it’s not just about preparing you to sit for the state board examinations, it’s about helping you become well-versed in your area of expertise and making you confident in your education.

I highly recommend attending AIB (Largo Campus). I graduated from the cosmetology program in Dec 2018. I’ve never met an amazing group of individuals (administrators/instructors/directors) who care so much and will do anything to see each student reach their goal to success.- Christina R.
Amazing school! I do part-time night cosmo and I’ve learned so much in such a small amount of time. Great atmosphere, surrounded by smiling faces. Instructors are awesome and Mr. Luis will teach you all you need to know when you get out on to the floor. Definitely would recommend this school to anyone!- Rubie C
Guest demonstrations, business and marketing education, and career day events. These are all ways that we strive to go above and beyond in the education of our students. There are so many things to learn and do in the beauty industry, and we want our students to experience as much as they can before they leave our campus.
AIB is proud to be a Redken school. Students in our Cosmetology program can take advantage of working with a professional line of products that come with their own custom education.

Our reputation for our Clinical Esthetics and Skin Care programs is going strong in the Largo area. It’s because we view skin care as the foundation for any good education in beauty. The skin is a canvas, estheticians are the artists, and we want to give them the skills it takes to create a masterpiece each time.
