Become a Beauty Professional, Get Expert Training at Penrose Academy

Penrose Academy has one goal: sculpting you to become a highly sought-after beauty professional. We partner with leading international beauty educators to drive our innovative curriculum. Get ready to work with industry heavyweights such as: Pivot Point, Milady, Bumble and bumble (and their guest platform artists), Ergo Styling Tools, Hattori Hanzo Shears, SkinMedica, Dermalogica, Joico, CND, Lumenis, Clarsonic and Millennium.

Beyond technical skills, our curriculum focuses on business development and life skills training to give you a competitive edge in the marketplace. Develop your professional portfolio, leadership skills, public speaking, communication and financial awareness, so you can become a well-rounded beauty professional.

Unlike many beauty schools where students start with whatever course is being taught when they enroll, at Penrose students move through zones in sequential order. Our program is designed to help you continuously build on your skills. Learn with the same group of peers and grow your connections in a safe and supportive learning environment. This allows you to dive in-depth into your training, letting you explore, move out of your comfort zone, and consequently grow as an artist.
