Within the walls of Hays Academy of Hair Design in Salina and Hays, Kansas students start their days in a classroom setting. In these classes they learn everything from electricity to chemistry to sanitation. Classes are taught by licensed educators by the state of Kansas who strive to deliver information in many ways to accommodate the learning styles of all of the students in class. After their morning class, they position themselves to be taking clients and working on mannequins and one another throughout their day. Students are awarded points based off of their ability to complete services as they have been taught as well as their production on our student salon floor with actual guests. These every day happenings at Hays Academy have assisted our students with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in the salon setting.
You likely would not be surprised to hear that the above happenings occur at many cosmetology schools across the nation. In this particular area, we are much like other schools.
However, a Hays Academy of Hair Design education takes the “must have education” to an entirely different level. As a school we bring salon owners/managers/professionals in to talk to our students about the experiences and advice that can carry them along the way. This real world practical education is vital to provide students a logical expectation of how the industry works.
Hays Academy also brings in celebrity stylists and beauty experts to provide students with education, inspiration and fun in learning. These are some of the most appreciated aspects of a Hays Academy of Hair Design education.
Competitions among other cosmetology schools as well as cosmetology school students from across the country has been a staple of our educational realm. We have had graduates win on the big stage in Chicago, Las Vegas, Long Beach and even get paid trips to Barcelona, Spain to participate in international competitions. We have graduates on the cover of popular salon magazines and even on major industry brands social media pages. These types of successes drive us to continue in the tradition of getting out of our comfort zones and making dreams happen.
