What You Need to Know about the Salon Success Partnership with MUD


Salon Success Academy always aims to bring the best instruction and products to our students. That’s why we’ve partnered with Make-Up Designory, or MUD. Salon Success students train with MUD products and methodologies not only in a cutting edge classroom specifically designed to enhance the educational atmosphere but also to practice those methodologies in a real salon environment. In addition to our own MUD certified educators, we’ve had representatives from the MUD education team visit our campuses to host live demonstrations in the latest techniques using their products, so students can be up to date on current trends and technology. Giving our students a competitive edge!

MUD was founded in 1997, starting as a two classroom location in Toluca Lake, California, and has expanded rapidly on a national and international scale. The company attributes much of its growth to its partnerships with schools and MUD Studio locations. MUD Studio Courses are offered through the main campuses, their network of MUD Partner Schools, and MUD Studios.

As a MUD Partner School, Salon Success Academy integrates the MUD Beauty Essentials course directly into the Esthetician Program. Completing the program not only meets the state licensing requirements but also completes MUD’s pre-requisite requirement. Whether your goals are to become a spa esthetician, film or fashion make-up artist, you would acquire the knowledge and training necessary to become a professional in a spa and also acquire the fundamentals of Make-up Artistry. Creating a solid foundation in which you can choose to grow into more advanced make-up programs such as Airbrushing, Avant-Garde, Studio, Bridal and even Special Effects.

By 2024, employment of skincare specialists is projected to grow by 12 percent, which is faster than average1 and California is the top employer of estheticians in the whole country!2
