My education has not only taught me so much but it was so fun and enjoyable. The staff and students made each day beautiful. It didn't feel like just school or work, it was more like a big family that helped each other be successful.


I’ve only been going to this school for three months and I’ve learned so much. I’ve always had an interest and a good understanding of hair but the school has helped me improve what I already knew and help me understand what I didn’t. All of the teachers are very nice and will help you with anything you are having trouble with. I’m really excited to graduate and start my life as a hairstylist.


I went here last year under the nail technician program and it was a great hands on experience. They supplied me with all of the tools I’d need to be successful. I’m now a year in working at a nail shop with a steady clientele thanks to the job placement program. 10/10 recommended if you want to get licensed.


I graduated from the Academy and I had a great experience! All the educators Were very knowledgeable and taught me so much on many levels. Which I still carry with me to this day! The atmosphere, all the patrons I was able to work on, and how versatile the school is, was a great advantage. I appreciate how well prepared I was for state board And to get out in the field.

What Is FAFSA?

Students enrolled at Academy of Hair Design are eligible to apply for Federal Assistance. We’re here on site, ready to help you figure out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your FAFSA application, combined with your tax return information, will determine whether you qualify for a number of financial aid options that are available. We recommend filling out your FAFSA early on in the beauty school application process to determine what your individual financial situation will look like. If you have questions during this process, financial aid representatives at Academy of Hair Design are available to help you.

It is important to note that if you are a dependent student, there is other information needed to complete the application. You can see the full list here, as well as further instructions about filling out the application online.

What type of aid is available?

Different types of financial aid can be available to you depending on your individual situation. A financial aid specialist at Academy of Hair Design can answer questions about any specific type of aid, including the following types of grants and loans:


A grant is a need-based payment made to help support a student’s education. Grants are typically awarded on the basis of academic or financial needs.

  • Pell Grants: Pell Grants are the foundation of federal student financial assistance, and aid from other federal and non-federal sources can be combined with Pell Grants. These grants are typically awarded to undergraduate students. Unlike loans, grants are not repaid unless you withdraw from school. The amount of your Pell Grant aid is based on factors such as age, attendance, family contribution, full- or half-time attendance, and your academic year.
  • Ace Grant: Prospective students should request information, an application, and a salon assessment for the Ace Grant Program by calling 1-800-831-1086 ext. 101. Ace Grants are up to $1,000. Visit for more information.

Federal Direct Loan Program

Student loans, unlike grants, are borrowed money that must be repaid with interest. Eligible students and parents borrow directly from the U.S. Department of Education. There are three types of loans in this program:

  • Subsidized Stafford Loan: This type of loan is only available to students with financial needs. Students with this loan will not be required to pay interest as a student or for the first six months after graduation.
  • Unsubsidized Stafford Loan: This type of loan is available to any student, regardless of financial situation. Recipients of this type of loan will be responsible for paying the interest once the loan is disbursed.
  • Plus Loans: This loan can be given to parents of a dependent undergraduate student to help pay for their student’s education. Parents must be approved for this type of loan with qualifying credit. You can find out more about PLUS loans and fill out the application here.
