Cosmetology Program

Hands-On Training to Teach You Cosmetology Fundamentals

Our web-based cosmetology curriculum promotes social interaction with educators and fellow students along with extensive hands-on training in our clinic salon environment. Annually, our cosmetology students see nearly 40,000 clients between our two campuses in North and South Seattle. This is an incredible amount of training with real salon-like experiences, allowing you to seamlessly transition into life after beauty school.

Our licensed educators will teach you all aspects of cosmetology, from the fundamentals of haircutting, coloring, relaxers, balayage and extensions; to providing you with the tools, techniques and business skills to build a rewarding career in the beauty industry.

Product Knowledge

Exposing cosmetology students to a variety of top salon professional quality haircare brands is essential to developing a well-rounded hairstylist. Our partnership with brands such as Goldwell® allows our students to train with the hair color brand of choice from the world’s top hairstylists. Students of our cosmetology program also work with brands such as Bumble and bumble®, Color Wow®, Redken®, Moroccanoil®, Ouidad®, evo®, R+Co® and many others so they know how to identify the best products for their clients to use at home.

Business Building

Gene Juarez Academy is the education division of Gene Juarez Salons & Spas, who operate ten highly successful salon & spa locations in the Pacific Northwest. We know there are three important components every cosmetologist must incorporate to be successful: having repeat clientele, building referrals, and selling retail products. Our renowned curriculum trains every student how to effectively apply these practices in real-world experiences on the clinic salon floor. In addition, we utilize proprietary programs to show our students the earning potential of following these best practices.

We Prepare You For The Real World

Our beauty school curriculum is designed to prepare you for the Washington State cosmetology licensing exam, and to help you successfully acquire a salon position upon graduation. We also believe it is equally important to develop your ability to achieve goals while overcoming life’s obstacles. Through our 20+-year partnership with the internationally recognized The Pacific Institute, we teach their Mastering The Attitude Of Success program to all cosmetology students. This program demonstrates proven techniques to teach you how the mind works, how to set & achieve goals, and how to deal with the challenges that may arise in your personal and professional life.

Job Placement Assistance

We will help you build your resume, polish your interviewing skills, and learn how to market yourself. In addition, we provide our cosmetology students with opportunities to network with regional salon employers through on-campus presentations and bi-annual career fairs.

Our externship program is a unique opportunity that allows you to work in a professional salon to earn hours toward your license. Working in a salon before graduation may offer you the opportunity to be hired immediately after getting a cosmetology license.

Graduates of our cosmetology program can be found working at top salons in the Pacific Northwest, nationally from Los Angeles to New York and internationally from Paris to Tokyo. Some have become celebrity stylists, editorial stylists, salon owners, product line educators, industry consultants and more.

The possibilities are endless for an exciting cosmetology career!  And you’ll graduate with an exceptional foundation to get you on your way.
