Beauty Academy in Newark, Ohio

Your Future Is Now.

If you’re tired of working in an area you’re not passionate about and want to jumpstart a career on your own terms, working in the beauty field is an excellent option.

But where do you start?

First, you must master technical skills, such as makeup, nail coloring, or haircutting and styling.

But, beyond the technical skills, it’s also important to know how to manage a business, including how to handle clients and how to remain persistent.

At Preston Beauty Academy, a licensed beauty academy in Ohio, we give each of our students access to quality training that goes beyond simply showing you how to master technical skills. Our mission is to help each of our students succeed in building careers that they’re truly passionate about, and we’d love to talk to you about your goals and dreams.

Read on to learn more about the programs and licenses we offer to Newark residents, along with our unique approach to beauty training. Once you’re ready to get started, contact us today!

An Overview of Preston’s Beauty Academy Training

To succeed in the beauty world, you need a few important skills, each of which forms the cornerstone of our training.

1) Basic Training: The first, of course, is understanding the basics of the work we do, which touches on everything from anatomy, sterilization, and chemistry. It’s important to have a solid grasp on the best practices used in each area you’re pursuing, which is why we start with showing you the right way to do each of them. You might already know the basics, but we often have students who don’t know enough or who even learned the wrong way initially.

2) Hands-On Work: Of course, theory without practice is often worthless, which is why you’ll also get plenty of hands-on training working with real customers. We offer these customers a discounted rate to be served by beauticians-in-training, and our specialists will oversee each session to help you refine your skills in the real world.

3) Mindset Training: Finally, we’ll train you on how to establish and maintain a successful career as a beautician, giving you the tools and skills needed to make it happen. This comes down to feeling confident and secure in your abilities, knowing how to treat customers, and understanding how to manage your career.

What we don’t do is simply show you how to cut hair or apply makeup and then leave you on your own. We aren’t in the business of only teaching technical skills – though we do that very well! Instead, it’s our hope that each of our students goes on to have successful beauty careers, and we do everything we can to make sure you achieve your dreams.
