Our mission is to graduate the elite and continue to live up to our reputation of training top stylists in the beauty industry.
At Marcella Ellis School of Cosmetic Arts students undertake demanding intellectual pursuits with their teachers and peers, not only do they learn to implement procedures but they learn how to articulate why they are performing the procedure. Students are required to explain in their own words the techniques in which they learn, analyze client situations and be able to explain the procedure to the client in an intelligent manner. Our classrooms are about dialogue, inquiry and critical thinking, as well as implementing healthy hair procedures and techniques. Students will learn to express their creativity through clear thought and design. In addition, students will learn how to build a portfolio, how to build and maintain a clientele, time management, marketing, advertising, and accounting skills.  Students will be well prepared to enter into the field of cosmetology as leaders in the Beauty industry and separate themselves from all competitors. This is an outstanding opportunity and by far the best educational value in the nation. Students will learn hands-on skills and a superior education from the very best educators in the industry.
