offering advanced ceu education to the hair community of illinois and beyond

For over 25 years, Art + Science has built its success on the foundation of education. As artists and masters of our craft, we succeed when we build strong relationships with our clients and it’s through continued education that we earn that success. We’re excited to announce the next stage of our education evolution with Art + Science Advanced CEU Academy. We share with you, the hairdressing community, the essentials of our foundation and our artistic vision. Join us, beginning February 2018.

Structure = foundation

These courses will help you understand the core principles of cutting, coloring and styling. They set the foundations of our creative work with men’s and women’s hair.

Abstract = creative

For those seeking advanced instruction, classes in the Abstract category will develop your eye for creativity. These classes specialize in advanced principles and techniques of cutting, coloring and styling.

Domestic Violence Certification

Per Illinois law, all Cosmetologists must receive at least 1 hour of Domestic Violence education to renew their license. We have partnered with a local professional counselor to provide excellent education so you can look out for your most vulnerable clients. Together we can save lives. All proceeds from the Domestic Violence Certification will be donated to a local women’s shelter.
