What is Love It, Learn It, and Live It?

Love It

You’ve had all things beauty flowing through your veins since day one! This is your passion. If you can say YES to any of these, you’re ready to take beauty to the next level:

  • You were always the friend everyone turned to for beauty advice, tips, and tricks.
  • You’re the friend who did everyone’s homecoming hair and prom makeup.
  • You’re an inventive person who’s ready to test out the newest trends.
  • You’re an artist, a lover of all things creative and different.
  • You’re the first to jump right in to learn the latest trending techniques because you are adaptable and open-minded.
  • You’re happiest when you’re elbows deep in hair color, skin care products, or makeup!

The path to becoming a true pro is getting the education you’ll need to be successful, and we’ve got you covered to help you learn it!

Learn It

Turn your passion to action! At American Institute of Beauty, you get piece of mind knowing that you are being trained by experienced professionals with many years of real-world, beauty industry expertise. They are here not only to train, guide, and prepare you for success; but also, to motivate, answer questions, and provide feedback.

Our well-rounded education encompasses both the hard and soft skills you’ll need to be successful in the beauty industry. With business and social media classes available, AIB takes you to the next level of a successful entrepreneur! On top of these additional classes, you will have the ability to practice your skills and techniques on actual salon and spa guests! This allows you to not only use your new skills but also interact with clients through customer service and salon/spa management too.

We want you to feel fully prepared to go out and make your dreams happen once you graduate. To do this, AIB simulates the experience of working in a salon, barbershop, or spa by providing top-of-the-line products. Below we list just a few!

Aside from learning the hard and soft skills, you will have the opportunity to hear from guest speakers and local employers in the beauty industry! We bring in leaders from local salons, spas, and barbershops to talk expectations, desired skills, and about their own experiences starting out so you are more than prepared to find your dream job!

On Career Days we are joined by employers from various parts of the beauty industry within our community. You get to meet with them, complete mock interviews, and potentially land a job before you even graduate!
