Programs in esthetics, hair, laser use, and faculty certification are also available.
"My favorite thing about Penrose Academy is their love and passion for the industry and mostly for each other," says alumnus Tim. "There is so much love and encouragement that it makes you feel much better about yourself. They are setting us up in real life scenarios and situations and bringing in outside professionals to give us a glimpse into the real world. Also, they are preparing us at the end with test out and mock interviews."
