Hairdressing and Cosmetology

We believe that our Continental Hairdressing and Cosmetology graduates leave with much more than the opportunity for a license.

They come away with real-world stylist skills and the confidence to help them go after their dreams. At Continental School of Beauty, you’ll learn to cut, style, color, balayage, highlight, straighten, chemically treat hair, and more! You’ll perform a variety of beauty services in addition to hair such as makeup, nails, and skin care to enhance your client’s appearance. While there’s a broad range of skills, many choose to specialize in processes and techniques of their own. We invite you onboard for The Continental Experience!
