Hawaii Cosmetology Academy

Hawaii Cosmetology Academy Program Overview

Hawai’i Cosmetology Academy is one of four privately run State of Hawai’i Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs licensed beauty schools on Oahu. Our school has been helping aspiring estheticians achieve licensure since 2008. We believe the gift of touch is sacred and must come from the heart. It is encapsulated in our vision, “The Gift of Caring.” This philosophy has been instrumental in our graduates realizing their dreams of serving the well-being of others through the application of esthetics and skin care.

Our esthetics program focuses on providing a complete esthetics instructional program that leads to licensure. We share our collective knowledge of esthetics in our six month basic program.
