cosmetology education

Our Curriculum

Aisling’s elite curriculum is approved by the North Carolina State Board of Cosmetic Arts. Upon completion of this program, graduates are eligible for licensure as a NC Cosmetologist. We know our program isn’t designed for everyone, but for those seeking to be the most well-rounded hairdressers in North Carolina, we offer requirements that far exceed those mandated by state licensure.

Our instructional staff includes NC Licensed instructors, as well as business and social media experts.

Our program includes instruction in the fundamental core topics of cosmetology as well as the most advanced topics in haircutting, hair color, manicuring, skin care therapy, technology, ingredients and state of the art equipment. Intense classroom theory is paired with hours of hands-on practical application in our modern salon.

We have partnered with Pivot Point International, a 50-year veteran in the cosmetology school industry. In addition to their textbooks, workbook, and state board exam prep book you will receive a Samsung Chromebook with your student kit so that you can use Pivot Point’s digital versions, which include videos of everything we teach, slide show presentations and all of your tests and quizzes. Equally as important, you will be certified in the independent company, Beauty as a Business. We are currently the only North Carolina cosmetic arts school teaching this curriculum. We know that the best technical skills in the world don’t mean anything if you can’t attract and retain a clientele!

Finally, we are a Wella partner school. This means a top of the line color and take-home products and integration of their learning! You’ll have access to our partnership with Dermalogica and OPI.

We are the future

Unlike traditional beauty schools, we bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world. We know that the salon and spa industry generates $40 billion in revenue and we want to make sure our graduates are grossing their share of that! According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, hairdressing is expected to increase by 10% by 2024–faster than the average of all occupations!

We proudly teach in a beautiful student clinic that equips our students to work with high-end clients with sophisticated taste!
