For Students

At SoNo Academy we are focused on providing you with the knowledge and experience you need to enter the salon profession with confidence and skill. Through a combined curriculum of classroom training and hands on experience you’ll master the essential techniques you need, while cultivating your own unique talents.

Our goal isn’t merely to prepare you for state licensure. We want to launch you on a lasting career. You will learn the most creative and cutting edge techniques and styles in the industry, as well as all the skills required to be able to provide your clients with any service they need.

Our students spend hours in our salon interacting and working directly with clients. The equipment we provide to you is carefully selected, not only for the completion of this course, but to carry you into the next level of your professional career.
