"Alchemy is defined as the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary."

This concept so deeply resonates with what we do as hair and makeup artists and serves as the inspiration for our approach to education. A seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, and combination is undergone at the academy, both in the students themselves as well as their skills.
