Easy Steps to Apply for Enrollment at Salon Success Academy

Ready to start the enrollment process? Follow these steps to get you on the road toward a great beauty school education!

1. Contact our team

Fill out the form below or call one of our locations to get the application process started. Once you let us know you’re interested in going to beauty school, a member of our team will reach out through email, phone call, or text as soon as we can to give you the information you need to enroll. We will mail you a brochure guide with everything you need to know about our programs. We will also schedule a tour so you can see the school for yourself.

2. Begin applying for financial aid

While you’re waiting for your tour date, take time to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). This is imperative and must be completed before you can enroll. We recommend starting to fill this out at least 3-5 days before your tour. This gives us time to receive your application and find out what additional information we need from you. Financial aid is available to those who qualify. If you need help or have questions about filling out this application, our financial aid team is always ready to help.

3. Tour the school

The tour is the best time to get your questions answered, and to see if Salon Success Academy is right for you! Interact with our talented instructors, see our classrooms and student salon, and experience what student life is like. We also want you to meet one or more of our student ambassadors! Student ambassadors are always happy to chat about their experiences at Salon Success Academy and answer questions about attending our school.

We want to see each of our students succeed, which is why we set up an admissions interview during the tour. We’ll ask you questions like what you’re interested in learning, what may stop you from succeeding at school, and any other helpful information we may need to know to help you graduate.

4. Complete your paperwork

Once you’ve picked one of our six beauty school locations in California, we’ll walk you through the rest of the paperwork and make sure you’re ready to get started! You can expect to fill out an enrollment agreement that walks you through class schedules, expected graduation date, and payment agreements. We want each and every student to know what to expect from their time at beauty school and how Salon Success Academy can support you.

All paperwork needs to be submitted and completed at least 7 days before the start day you plan to enroll. If you miss this deadline, don’t worry! Classes often start each month, which means you don’t have to wait long for your next beauty school opportunity.

“I am writing this review because I find it very disheartening that only people that have negative things to say usually post a comment. I'm here to do the opposite. I've been at salon success academy Upland campus since February. I am in the cosmo program and a current student ambassador. I have had the best experience here. To be older and now getting to do something that I love and to come and be accepted was more than I could ask for . I have built lifelong friendships and have met teachers that I have come to admire. Anywhere in this world is going to have its ups and downs but it's not as bad as some say. I have been acknowledged when I do a good job and I have received constructive criticism on what to do better next time. If you're following the rules and doing what you came here to do then you will have no problems. The things that I have learned at this school will definitely make me a successful stylist when I leave. SO THANK YOU SALON SUCCESS.”
