Our Students prepare for Real-World Guest Scenarios

Our unique Skin Assessment and Recommendation System simplifies the skin analysis process by providing a foundation for our students to build critical-thinking skills. The unique process is segmented into four parts what our students learn:

Observe – Gather and document information; identify client concerns

We start by gathering the client information on a client intake form. This will allow us to identify demographic information, client concerns, health history, and lifestyle factors.

Analyze – Identify the current state of skin and treatment goals

During Analyze, we are identifying the skin type/condition(s), contraindications, and Fitzpactrick type. This will allow us to create a summary of the skin analysis.

Treat – Create and perform a customized service

After the skin analysis summary, we then perform a customized service to address the client’s needs. This would include making informed decisions on products, tools, devices, and an approach that would be utilized for the customized service the client will experience.

Teach – Recommend products and future services; educate the guest on their skin

Our final step is to Teach the client about the care of their own skin. We recap the service performed, observations made, post-care approach, recommend future treatments and products to use at home. Although this is the last step, we stress the importance of Teach the client.

MUD Level 1 Make-up and other Certifications included

Our Esthetician classes include MUD’s Exclusive 84-Hour Beauty Essentials Course and Level I Make-up Certification. Since 2018, our Esthetician school has provided students with the PCA Skin certification.

Testimonials

  • I was recently at your Bloomingdale location this past Saturday.  Christopher cut my hair as well as did a color correction w/high lights.  Even though I was there for 5 hours he took his time to make sure that the job was being done right and asked instructors for feedback etc when needed.

    Well, the outcome came out FANTASTIC. I posted my picture on my Facebook as well as my personal weight watchers profile and I was bombarded with so many likes saying how cute the color/cut came out and how it complements my newly thinned out features.   I went drastic with a modified pixie cut and I went for it 🤣!!

    I’m hoping that Christopher is available the next time I go for a trim and touch up 😊😊

    I chose pivot point intentionally because I’ve always loved makeup. Going through all the phases and learning all the curriculum I’ve never been so happy to become a well-rounded hairstylist knowing all techniques and learning all different hair types. I’ve never been so blessed to be working at Sharon Daniel Salon to further my career and make everyone feel beautiful!

    Alissa M.
  • 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!

    Pivot Point Academy is not only a school, it is a home. This place helped me branch out into a whole different person. I tried things I never knew I would try and accomplished so much more than I would’ve ever thought. Pivot Point allowed me to find another home at Sorelle Salon in Bartlett. I am a full-time stylist now doing hair, makeup, spray tans, lash extensions, lash lifts, and nails! This industry offers so much and Pivot Point helped me realize beauty is unstoppable!

  • I chose Pivot Point Academy because I wanted a supportive, family-like school. I knew from the minute I toured the academy; I was home. The educators were amazing, my classmates were always cheering me on and the rest of the team always had my back. I knew going to Pivot Point I would have the best cosmetology education and opportunities following graduation. I was given all of that, plus so much more.

    Savannah F.

    I chose Pivot Point because it had always been highly recommended to me and frankly; no other school compared. I felt welcomed and at home right away, so I knew it was the right choice. After graduating from Pivot Point, I was able to come across an amazing job opportunity at The Mixx Hair Salon where I am now a full-time hairstylist and lead makeup artist.
