A Chicago Cosmetology School, a World Leader in Beauty Education
In 1962, Pivot Point Founder, Leo Passage, opened Pivot Point Beauty School at the corner of Howard and Clark Streets on the north side of Chicago. His first class was made of five students in one classroom. Today, Pivot Point International is a global company creating high-quality cosmetology and esthetics education used in schools around the world. The educational materials we develop help empower the next generation of designers to succeed in the beauty industry.
Pivot Point operates three corporate beauty Academies in the Chicago area—Evanston Academy which serves Chicago and the Chicago suburbs; Chicago Academy on Irving Park Road which serves Chicago; and Bloomingdale Academy which is in the western Chicago suburbs. In addition to our corporate locations, we have a network of schools that use Pivot Point's A Designer's Approach or Salon Fundamentals libraries. Going to school at Pivot Point means you are a part of something bigger; you will be learning the language of hair and skin care that other beauty school students in many corners of the world are also learning. Because of your Pivot Point education, you will be able to communicate with your peers and clients as a confident beauty professional.
