Your Future Is Now

If you’re looking to start a new beauty career, the first step is getting your appropriate training and licenses. It can be hard, though, to pick the right academy. You need to learn cosmetology skills from the best, but you also need to understand how to turn your newfound skills into a sustainable career.

That’s why, at Preston’s Beauty Academy, we focus not only on teaching you technical skills but also preparing you to run your own business and giving you the tools needed to succeed.

We would be thrilled to have you join us.

What You Can Expect from Preston’s Beauty Academy

As a licensed beauty academy in Ohio, it’s imperative that we provide our students with the skills needed to provide customers with an excellent service. That’s why we believe in a holistic approach to education, touching on theory, practice, and mentality.

After all, this is what your customers will expect from you. They need to understand your area of expertise, be able to give them the looks they want and provide them with an amazing customer experience.

Altogether, our training is broken up into these three areas:

  1. Basic Training: We start by teaching you the basics of each technical skill you’re pursuing, from haircutting and permanents to chemical applications. We also explore some other fields that inform how to be a successful beautician, including anatomy, sterilization, and chemistry. You won’t need a Ph.D. in these fields, but there are some things that will help you succeed in your work that are important to learn.
  2. Hands-On Work: At our academy, we provide clinical services to customers at a discounted rate so that our students can get the hands-on experience they need to become proficient. This will be done under our staff’s direct supervision, so you’ll be given a good deal of expert insight that will help you improve quickly.
  3. Mindset Training: Managing a successful career or business takes more than a sharp pair of scissors and hours of practice. It takes the right approach to your work and life, which is why we also help our students build up their self-confidence, integrity, and persistence. When all is said and done, we want you to feel like there’s nothing to stop you – because there’s not!


We offer a few different licenses, and you can do as many of them as you like. We encourage students to do as many as they can to set themselves up for the greatest amount of opportunity, but we also have plenty of students who do just one.

Cosmetology Management

This is our most popular course, revolving largely around haircutting and styling, including:

  • Hair coloring & permanent waving
  • Color correction
  • Braiding
  • Updos
  • Cornrows
  • Pin curls
  • And more!

We also show you how to give manicures, pedicures, and facials, along with makeup application training.

Aesthetician Management

Our Aesthetician Management course focuses mostly on facial beauty, from giving ultimate facials to waxing eyebrows and applying artificial eyelashes. You’ll also learn how to give relaxation massages and help your customers achieve healthier skin.

Manicurist Management

If you’re looking to work at – or own – a nail salon, then our Manicurist Management training is perfect for you. You’ll learn everything there is to know about manicures and pedicures, along with how to perform advanced techniques, including nail design, gel and acrylic nails, and polishing.
