Over the years I have been fortunate enough to work with top salons and schools around the world. The Douglas J group are in a league of their own. Constantly striving to be excellent, not satisfied with their great success, pushing the boundaries of technical skill, creativity and customer service. Choosing to train with Douglas J is not just attending cosmetology school, it’s the first step in building a career.

BEAUTY in motion   

Creative people are visual, so it only makes sense to support you with a tool leaps and bounds more interactive than a textbook (and kinder to trees, too). 


You can capture video instruction at the Institute, at home or the coffee shop via an iPad mini — yours to keep after graduation. With apps, photos and videos, you’re supported with step-by-step digital curriculum, Educator interaction and, ultimately a place to showcase your portfolio of work.
