For Adults with Focus – The Best Choice

At Bella Institute School of Cosmetology, we produce knowledgeable graduates through affordable, high-quality education programs. We are a diverse school that fosters individual creativity through our staff members, who are all highly skilled in their areas of expertise.

We believe in using a competency-based program for teaching our students rather than completion of a specific number of hours of instruction. This makes it possible for students to develop their skills to the best of their ability before entering a professional setting.

Students' progress much faster toward their goal as they demonstrate their proficiency in each study area. In fact, many students complete the program 50 to 60 percent quicker than traditional beauty school students. The time from the start of the program to graduation could be as short as three months, and the less time that you spend learning your craft, the sooner you can begin to work and generate income.

If you've been thinking about pursuing a career in cosmetology or barbering, then contact us today at (503) 236-5600 for more information. We'll be happy to provide more in-depth information about our curriculum, pricing, and class schedules.

*Our schedules do not change, by flexible we mean shorter classes and no weekends
