Testimonials

  • After doing a ton of research, I chose to attend Pivot Point Academy to obtain my Cosmetology license. Their curriculum looked the best compared to other schools, and I’ve heard great feedback from friends that attended this beauty school.

    Lisa W.

    I recently attended the Cosmetology school at Pivot Point Academy to tighten up my skills. Great instructors that facilitate a collaborative learning experience that is not only based on concepts – but also hands-on practice to help enhance your skills.

    Sophia B.
  • Attending Pivot Point Academy for my cosmetology training was the single most important career decision I’ve made. From the strongest in fundamentals to a vast network, I wouldn’t be the traveling artists I am today without it. In one word: Blessed!

    Julianna P.

    I chose Pivot Point because of its professional but fun atmosphere. I feel that they took cosmetology as seriously as I did but everyone was still warm and welcoming! I am now working at a Redken Elite Salon in Chicago and I feel like I’ve found a home in my rising salon!
