Frequently Asked Questions About Our Upland Campus

How do I choose which program is right for me?

Our Upland campus offers Cosmetology, Esthetics, Nail Technology, Barbering, and Make-Up Designory. Cosmetology students learn a wide array of beauty skills, while Estheticians are focused more on skin care. Barbers focus on men’s hair care and grooming, Nail Techs focus on nails, and Make-Up Designory students concentrate on the application of make-up. Which of these programs are you passionate about? Also, ask yourself if you are going to be a full-time or part-time student, and how long you want to be in school. Do you want to take our 1,200-hour Cosmetology course, or would the shorter Nail Technology course be a better fit for you? If you would like to visit our campus and discuss the various programs with one of our instructors, contact us to schedule a tour!

What are the student clinics for?

Our student clinics are a simulated professional salon, spa, and barbershop. Students provide the services that are offered there as part of their beauty education. They are always under the direct supervision of licensed professionals, who will guide the students through each service and give advice when needed. Anyone from the community can schedule an appointment at our student clinics to receive a haircut, coloring service, manicure, facial, or another one of our services. We strive to give our clients a professional salon, spa, or barbershop experience.

Can I schedule a service at the student clinic?

We would love to offer you our services in our Upland, California student salon, spa, or barbershop. To schedule a service, first go to our Salon page to see what we offer. Then, call our Upland salon at (909)982-4662 to schedule your appointment.

Are the classes at Upland big?

Although the Upland campus is our biggest campus, we strive to keep class sizes small, so students can benefit from more one-on-one time with our experienced instructors. Salon Success Academy is a family-owned and operated company, and we welcome each student into the school as part of our family!

What does it mean that Make-Up Designory is a continuing education course?

At this time, we are only offering our Make-Up Designory course to professionals who already have their Cosmetology or Esthetics license. The Make-Up Designory course does not have any school credits attached to it. It is more of a skill-building class for professionals who want to learn more about make-up application.

How do I schedule a tour of the Upland campus?

Attending Salon Success was great because I got to learn a lot more about the manicuring field and grow my skills as a Nail artist. My favorite part was meeting my classmates and getting to learn from them also. Beauty School was everything I expected and i’m happy I made this investment for my career.
