L’esprit Academy’s goal is to provide unparalleled instruction, through employee to student interactions and consistency in the learning experience so that our graduates can find employment in the Cosmetology, Manicuring, Esthetics or Instructor field.  Our staff is carefully selected, highly qualified and vital to the student experience.  This student-friendly, well supported and state of the art atmosphere is the sustainable competitive advantage to create well prepared, highly skilled graduates.

We follow the industry standard Milady’s curriculum and all state and federal requirements.
One of the distinguishing factors in the L’esprit curriculum is the special hands on and demo instruction from current platform artists.  Students will be prepared to qualify for the state board examination for licensure in their field of study. All curricula include classes in basic business procedures, standards, and industry insights.  Instructor courses are a custom program, with costs determined on an individual basis.
