We offer two different career paths of study. Our cosmetology program will teach you everything you need to know about hair care, hair removal, facials, manicures, skin care, make-up, product knowledge, and industry trends and electives.

Our esthiology program will teach you the latest trends in make-up, facials, body services, hair removal, industry trends, and microdermabrasion.

Both programs will teach you the business skills you need to have a successful career in the beauty industry. And don’t forget about all the fun you’ll have as you work toward achieving your dreams!

Our VICÍ Aveda Institute at VICÍ Park (Milwaukee Campus) utilizes an Aveda curriculum, where our VICÍ Beauty School – Bayshore Campus employs a hybrid curriculum based on the Pivot Point system.


Our cosmetology course incorporates 1800-hours of extensive hands-on learning to provide you a complete understanding of beauty and wellness. Master this course and you will be on your way to a career as a stylist, hair color specialist, sales representative, salon manager or even a salon owner. Does it get any better than that? We think not.

Our 600-hour esthiology program will teach you international trends and specialized techniques to purify, balance and renew skin, as well as techniques in makeup application. Our hands-on training will also teach you how to perform facials, waxing, body treatments, and makeup application techniques.
