Excel in the Industry

You may be the most talented beauty professional in the room, but you still need to sell your services and prove why you’re a great employee to potential employers. That’s why we emphasize business skills development as well as technical training to give you a competitive edge in the beauty industry.

Our founder, Jill Kohler, started The Salon Association to help salon owners run their businesses better. She found salon owners were often searching for skilled employees with business knowledge; Penrose was born to fill that need. Our graduates embody professionalism and expertise, which is sought after in this industry.

Our number one goal is your success. We’re dedicated to preparing you for a career you’ll love. We do that by providing you with a comprehensive, unique and empowering educational experience.
