Why Cosmetology School?

Being a stylist is about more than just cutting and coloring someone’s hair. It’s about helping people feel like their best selves. At Blades School of Hair Design, we want our cosmetology students to graduate as competent, compassionate beauty professionals. Our program covers the latest techniques in hair, skin, and makeup, but it also teaches the business and customer relations side of beauty.

If you see yourself working in a high-end salon, creating looks for fashion shows, or helping brides get ready for their big day, cosmetology could be the perfect choice for you. Not only does it provide the opportunity to think creatively and experiment with new trends, it’s also a way to help people look and feel their most beautiful!

see what our students have to say

I started blades in October of 2021, and it has not been anything less of amazing. From the teachers giving us all their knowledge of hair and anything, beauty related. They’re very eager to help us be successful in this industry. In the beginning I was worried about starting because I wasn’t starting fresh out of high school like many of the other classmates, but I have since gained friendships with other students who are older and younger than myself. I love that blade is very flexible with my schedule as a mom, wife, and worker. I recommend blades to anyone when they express to me their interest in going to beauty school. I love blades and everyone there. I will miss them when I do graduate but i will keep all the memories and knowledge that they have given me.


We have all wanted to feel happy, proud, beautiful, radiant, and just gorgeous all at once and forever more. Blades School of Hair Design is outstanding, certified, and qualified and surely recognized either by appointment or just walk in the door. Its easy to be beautiful according to how you feel, but when others notice it that feeling is so real. “Blades is the Real Deal”

My experience at Blades has been amazing! I was nervous my first day but seeing how welcoming everyone was I felt right at home. The teachers are awesome and very helpful. They are always there for me when I need them and reassure me when I’m questioning myself. I’m grateful to be part of such an amazing school and would recommend Blades to anyone who is interested in starting their cosmetology career!
