Why else should you consider cosmetology?
Many Regency students are drawn to the flexibility of the industry. Some career paths allow you to set your own hours, and no matter where you move, guests want to look beautiful.

There’s no doubt…it’s an industry driven by change, continued advancement and a whole lot of passionate artists. Are you ready to join the next generation in beauty?
