Keep reading to learn more about the TONI&GUY beauty school difference and what students can expect when applying for an education with us.

History of TONI&GUY

Founded back in 1963, we’ve been an established and globally well-known brand for over 50 years! The first TONI&GUY salon was opened in London and after opening our salon in the United States in 1985, we quickly made a name for ourselves here as well. As we provided clients with beauty services, we knew that we wanted the opportunity to teach these techniques to other people. In 1990 the first TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy was opened in Dallas, Texas! Since then, we’ve continued to grow and teach aspiring beauty professionals how to push their creativity. Anyone who graduates with us today can feel proud to know that they’ve learned from a school with a long and impressive background in the industry!

Our Culture

With TONI&GUY Hairdressing academies in multiple locations, we have the opportunity to share our culture of education and creativity with the next generation of beauty students. As part of this education, we teach that each client has a unique style. We believe in teaching our students how to provide clients with a look that speaks to their personal style while also incorporating the students’ own creative talents. This is an important skill to have and it can help you gain and retain clients as you start a career. It’s why we make sure to include these skills in our students’ education!

Learn Using Professional Products

We want to prepare our students for a beauty career after graduation and part of that includes teaching them how to work with professional beauty brands. Students in our program will have the opportunity to practice beauty techniques with our very own professional product, TIGI. The founders of TONI&GUY wanted to provide clients with professional products that gave high-quality results. To do this, they launched the now globally well-known TIGI brand. What better place is there to learn about this professional and recognizable brand than in the place where it all started?

Learn the Latest in Cosmetology

We’re committed to helping our students gain a cosmetology education that can jumpstart their career as a beauty professional. In our 41-week cosmetology program, students will start by learning the basics of hairdressing like cutting and coloring techniques. As they continue with our program, students will gradually build upon their knowledge in beauty with lessons in customer service, self-marketing, client relation techniques, and so much more! These lessons are divided into 6 different phases. One phase is completely dedicated to preparing you to sit for the state licensing exam and another allows students to participate in creative projects, field trips, and photoshoots. All of these phases are designed to create one complete cosmetology education!

Advanced Education

At TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy, we know that beauty trends are always changing. Those who work in the beauty industry need to constantly update themselves with the newest techniques to make sure that they can provide clients with relevant beauty services. Our culture of providing education to students goes beyond graduation. In our Continuing Education courses, we offer classes for anyone, no matter where they are in their beauty journey, to learn the latest techniques. The best part is that TONI&GUY alumni are eligible for a lifetime discount of 50% off on these Advanced Education courses. These courses are offered at our Costa Mesa and Dallas locations.
