The Academy of Hair Design is celebrating its 20th year in 2016!

Academy of Hair Design focuses on individual transformation starting with a first-class education in cosmetology, barbering, esthetics, and manicuring. The academy is committed to helping students reach their full potential by preparing them for a career in the beauty and barber industry. Academy of Hair Design provides a unique education for students who desire to explore their passions and creativity, learn professional salon techniques and business skills, and successfully stand out in the beauty industry.

Jerry Bevelle, his daughter, Christie Gonzales, and her husband, David Gonzales, started the school in 1996, after struggling to find talented hair stylist to work at their successful and growing hair salon chain. They wanted a place where they could train students on the latest techniques and give them the business knowledge that they would need to be successful! The Academy of Hair Design was born!

In the 20 years The Academy of Hair Design has been around it has seen over 1000 students come through its four programs for training, including students from all over the Midwest. The Academy has won multiple awards including Salon Owner’s Choice for the best school in Southwest Missouri and a Missouri State University Best Salon Award. We are proud of the outstanding educators and students who have been connected with the Academy over the years!
