Students at Summit Salon Academy Kansas City can experience our technical training, knowledgeable instruction, and business training, which are all key to the development of their professional skills. More than that, students can experience confidence-building encouragement that helps them reach inside themselves and discover unique artistic talents. Our curriculum uses the Summit Salon Systems, which teaches students the foundational knowledge of how to earn a beautiful living while fostering an environment of support and encouragement. Instead of competing against each other, our students build each other up and celebrate when one student achieves success.
Summit Salon Academy Kansas City, owned by Jason York, has nurtured a rich history with Summit Salon Business Center (SSBC), the world’s largest salon seminar, training, and consulting company. We bring SSBC into our beauty school curriculum, so students can learn how to earn a beautiful living if they choose to. In this way, we strive to elevate the industry one student at a time, impacting our culture inside our school and also the beauty culture that students may enter after graduation. Throughout our history, our instructors and students have worked together to support and encourage one another.
We are proud to educate students from local communities in Kansas and Missouri, as well as students from all across the country.
At Summit Salon Academy Kansas City, we not only teach leadership; we demonstrate it.
Our curriculum for the Cosmetology and Esthetics programs educates students in the skills and knowledge they will need to sit for the Missouri State Board exam. Many students go on to take the exam and receive a Missouri State license for cosmetology or esthetics. Students who take our Instructors Training program already have a Missouri license in cosmetology or esthetics. After completing our program, they may go on to sit for the MO State Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners Instructor exam.
Of special interest, students in our esthetics program may qualify to take the international
CIDESCO exam and earn a CIDESCO diploma, which is recognized worldwide.
Although we cannot guarantee employment after graduation, completing one of our programs at SSAKC can prepare you for a number of career choices in the beauty industry. Students might go on to work in a professional salon or spa, manage or own their own salon or spa, become a beauty school instructor, work as a product representative, and more. We are proud to help prepare students for the business of the beauty industry.
