Kittanning Beauty Academy

Welcome to the Exciting World of Professional Beauty Services. Whether you would like to experience our full service clinic that is open to the public or become a successful graduate we have it all for you!!!

Mission: The Mission of the Butler and Kittanning Beauty Academy of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences is to train and prepare its students for the State Board Licensing Examinations and to assist its graduates in securing employment in the field of cosmetology. By maintaining high educational standards, the Schools assure every student a solid basic education in every facet of cosmetology. During the entire educational process, care is exercised to respect creative abilities while developing and encouraging artistic growth. Students are introduced to the current trends as they are released and presented to the beauty field. They are properly trained in the effective use of all tools of the trade. In essence students are qualified to meet a complete set of professional criteria. They develop the skills, tact, and performances demanded by clientele and learn to perform in accordance with all state rules and regulations, those of the school and those directly related to the ethical operation of a beauty school and styling salon. Regarding the public, the Schools maintain maximum efficiency and safety by operating a well organized student training clinic and by assuring proper use of all equipment, supplies and chemicals used in various services. The Schools have a continuing and progressive training program which enables students to initiate and advance their careers in the beauty field.
