Ready to take the beauty industry by storm?

We’ve earned our reputation in the industry and want to help you do the same. Our cosmetology program can teach you how to create the “it” hair and makeup trends that you see on your Instagram feed, as well as classic looks that will never go out of style. But that’s not all.

At Xenon Academy, we know that being a stylist is about much more than gorgeous hair and makeup. It’s about running your own business and building a list of loyal clients. That’s why our curriculum heavily focuses on salon and social media marketing, income strategies, and guest service training.

Beauty provides a creative, welcoming space for all types of people. It’s also a billion-dollar industry that is fast-paced and highly competitive. For over 30 years, Xenon Academy has trained future cosmetologists to enter this industry with the skills, vision, and confidence needed to succeed.

Why Xenon Academy?

Our favorite thing in the world is seeing students who are excited and passionate about beauty. That’s why we do what we do! When you enroll, you’re not just going to beauty school, you’re joining a big, enthusiastic, beauty-obsessed family. We’re here to learn and have a great time, but most importantly, we’re here to support you during and after your education.

Here are just a few of the ways we stand out:

Program Details

We don’t teach how to cut hair and call it a day. Becoming a beauty professional is so much more than that. As a student, you can expect to receive a comprehensive education that includes beauty techniques, career prep, safety and sanitation, client relations, and business/marketing practices.

Our 1800-hour program can be completed in just over a year. Classes are held Tuesday-Friday from 8:45 am to 4:30 pm. The cosmetology program is offered at both our Grand Island and Omaha campuses.

It has honestly been Great being a part of Xenon Academy. I transferred from another cosmetology school half way through my program because I found that Xenon was more about teaching ethics and professionalism not just as a school but as a business. I have learned so much more than I ever imagined being here from all of the educators and having multiple programs to consider. I want to thank all the educators for teaching and coaching me with all of their professional knowledge in this industry. I will be very successful now that I am a Xenon Graduate. I highly recommend Xenon Academy in Grand Island Nebraska and Omaha.
