  • Facilities

    The Academies are located at 8101 East Colfax Avenue in Denver, Colorado. Our classrooms are equipped with modern equipment. Programs, charts, diagrams and an up-to-date video library enhance classroom activities.

    Our schools simulate salon conditions to help our students “learn by doing”, with modern equipment and a variety of supplies that help enhance the student’s product knowledge. A student lounge or break area is provided for student use with facilities for eating and taking breaks. There are lockers available for students in which to keep their uniforms, tools, products, and other personal items.

    Our students are taught to manage the reception desk by logging in patrons, answering the telephone and operating the cash register. They are assigned daily to allow students to practice this task. They learn how to do inventory control and assist in operating the school’s supply system. Our objective is to help the student to become “salon ready”.

    The school is owned by Cuttin’ Up Hair Corporation Karen Hall, President and James Hall, Vice President.
