The Small Business Assistance Program

A business in the beauty industry can be an opportunity for financial success and professional pride. It is a viable career for a diversity of entrepreneurs that requires minimal investment in education and capital and can result in positive outcomes for women and people of color, such as economic independence and growth in self-confidence and autonomy.

The Center provides the training and resources to ensure a license in Barbering, Cosmetology and Esthetics is a pathway out of minimum wage work and into a career or business that helps our students thrive personally, financially and professionally.

Students learn how to leverage their special skills, experiences and passions to create a unique value proposition that is attractive to clients and can quickly scale their client base.

We then support students to tailor their contracts, policies, marketing, prices and customer service model to align with and support their core business concept.
