You Were Born To Create.
We Will Train You To Transform.

When a client is in the chair, the possibilities seem endless. True transformations become possible. That’s exactly what Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School can do for you by giving your career limitless opportunities. We proudly offer a multitude of programs in several disciplines. Whether you are interested in manicuring, esthetics or cosmetology, you will find a program to meet your goals.

Complete Cosmetology

At Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School, our educational philosophy is “complete cosmetology.” At graduation, you will be able to call yourself a well-rounded Cosmetologist. You won’t be just a hair cutter or a product salesperson. Our graduates are salon owners, makeup artists, teachers…true industry leaders. You will learn traditional hair services and pampering spa treatments, such as spa manicures, spa pedicures and full body exfoliation. Technology is important, too! Your full kit of professional equipment also includes an iPad Mini.

In your career, you are bound to see a variety of fashions and trends, of hair textures and lengths, of techniques and tools. So, you should be trained to use the full gamut of products. One size does not fit all! We will expose you to a variety of professional product lines, giving you the confidence you need to make the transition from student to professional.

As our student, you will become like family. Believe us, we know family is important. How many of you visited a “family barber” or hair stylist at one point in your life? Ohio State School of Cosmetology and The Spa School is locally owned and operated, serving as a premier beauty expert for the past 80+ years. As part of our legacy, we ensure state-of-the-art education, provided by a dedicated and loyal staff. We work to continually enhance our program, staying connected with trends and techniques. We are able to keep up with the changes in the industry because our teachers are hands-on with nail files and clippers, rather than behind a desk.

We are totally committed to your success. In whichever program you choose, we will prepare you for certification tests and employment. A bright career is just down the road. Elevate your passion. Elevate beauty.


"The ladies (students) at the Spa School in Graceland are amazing. I had a brand new person and she has never done layers and she did a wonderful job. Her name is Tory!!"

Tammy Merriner-Baker

"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."
