About Us

Years ago, we decided to create a school that reflected our passion for all things beauty. At Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School, we are experienced beauty professionals helping to create the future of our industry. We understand you because we are you. We’ve been students. We’ve been employees. We have owned salons. We have even been clients. We strive to provide our students with the best possible experience for their journeys and we love seeing where those lead.

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.
