About Us

Years ago, we decided to create a school that reflected our passion for beauty. At Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School, we are experienced beauty professionals creating professional beauty experts. We understand you because we are you. We have been students. We have been employees. We have owned salons for years. We have even been clients.

Becoming a beauty professional requires an investment of your time and money. Therefore, you will want to select top-notch training. If you want to be the best (and why wouldn’t you?), then you will need a partner like Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School.


To provide training that is complete, relevant and inspiring for careers that make people look and feel better is as noble an endeavor as is the work for which the training is intended.

"You know.. these teachers deal with a lot and students constantly come and go with education being fast-tracked into graduation. I’m not going to get into the complaints (which I do have like everyone else) or discredit the bad reviews here. I enjoyed the majority of my time in school and Mrs. Turf was the most wonderful teacher to her students. I have never had a better teacher than her."


"I go to The Spa School. It’s a cosmetology school. You have to make an appointment. I was there on April 2015. Sometimes the service is great and sometimes it is, I wouldn’t say horrible because they are students. I was there April tenth. At Christmas time they give out gift certificates like buy one and you get two for the price of one. The cost is usually about $35. Because I bought them in December it is worth it. They do nail pedicures."
