Located near the popular South Coast Plaza, Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy 13,000 square-foot standalone cosmetology school began serving aspiring hair professionals and the Costa Mesa community back in 2010. Modern and upscale with an upbeat, supportive, and – most importantly – fun environment, TONI&GUY® Hairdressing Academy in Costa Mesa is teeming with positive energy. That should be expected when everyone within the walls of our hair school – from our talented students to their team of expert instructors – is doing what they love for a living.
Speaking of their cosmetology instructors, the skills and knowledge they have gained in their 200 combined years of hair industry and educational experience are nothing short of impressive. All of our instructors have completed a certified hair design school or hair stylist school. It is this expertise that has proudly made us one of the most-awarded cosmetology schools and beauty schools in the national network of TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academies.
Contributing to our educational and experiential uniqueness is the skilled team of directors and instructors at our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy. With over 80 combined years of experience, our instructors are experts at transferring their technical and industry knowledge through a variety of teaching methods.
What is your favorite part of working at TONI&GUY?
I feel constantly supported and inspired by my cosmetology school students, peers, and mentors. We have a genuine sense of team and community within our company, and we are committed to helping each other succeed in reaching all of our individual goals. It is great to be in such a motivating and positive environment every day.
What is your fondest memory of your time as a beauty school director?
I enjoy every day, and I feel grateful that I have the opportunity to support our academies on the West Coast as a Director but still stay active in hairdressing and education on our Artistic Team. Both aspects of my career are so important to me. I have the perfect balance here at TONI&GUY while always continuing to learn and grow as a mentor and a hairdresser with the support of my cosmetology school team.
