Similar to our cosmetology program, our hairstyling program emphasizes the core fundamentals of hairstyling, but in a more specialized track, focusing only on hair cutting, colouring, styling, and other specialty hair services. The hairstyling program at our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy in Colorado Springs, CO prepares students to become talented, successful hair stylists with the knowledge and confidence of a professional. When students complete our program, they have the tools they need to pass the state board exam and be salon-ready. Our program is designed to send off our students with a well-rounded skillset, a clear understanding of the hairstylist’s role, the confidence to provide excellent customer service, and marketable real-world salon experience.

Our Hairstyling Classes
Students will have the opportunity to get a hands-on experience at our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy. With small class sizes and a structured curriculum, we foster the ideal environment for students to begin developing their skills. By applying the theory and technical skills taught throughout the program, our students learn to approach hairstyling and client work creatively. Our program will help students to become technically proficient in haircutting, hair colouring and hairstyling while learning how to combine these techniques to round out their skillset. Along with these technical skills, students also develop soft skills–like client relations–through the hairstyling curriculum. We aim to equip our student with the abilities needed to be confident in any situation or challenge on the salon floor.
Following a core TONI&GUY philosophy, we believe in creating real hair for real people and doing so with exceptional skill each time at our Hairdressing Academy. Our students are provided with the skills and knowledge necessary to ultimately stand among the ranks of some of the highest acclaimed hairstylists in the world. These skills and knowledge help students to master their craft and give their clients a look they love each time they leave the chair to build trust and gain loyal clientele.

The training our students receive through our hairstyling program is designed to prepare them for a professional career as a hairstylist as well as giving them the tools to pass the state board exam and earn their hairstyling license. This is why focusing on hands-on experience and education is a key factor in our Hairdressing Academy, because we know that real-world experience leads to real-world success.
Through providing a thorough, specialized education for our hairstyling students, we aspire to cultivate a skillset that will allow them to achieve their career goals and excel in the hair industry far beyond what they ever thought possible.
