What We Stand For

Professionalism. Integrity. Excellence.

The ARROJO cosmetology school aims to give a well-rounded, inspirational, and career-shaping education so you can graduate with a skill set that paves the way for lifelong achievement. The state-of-the-art school now offers two leading programs, Cosmetology & Barbering, at two Manhattan locations, one in TriBeCa, one in SoHo. In the epicenter of fashion, trend and style, you'll find inspiration all around you, while our boutique facility allows for small-class sizes and provides a great place for your work to flourish.

Over your course, you'll learn professional cosmetology / barbering services in theory and practice, client communication, retail performance, presentation skills, creative expression, and business building. We help graduates find employment. Graduates from our cosmetology program can also apply to become an ARROJO studio employee.

The school locations, although completely private, both adjoin an ARROJO studio, one of New York's most successful hair salons. Experienced professional instructors teach daily, but you'll also get guest demos and lectures from my studio team of master stylists and I. We will demo techniques, provide you with insights to the industry, and give you a platform to work in the salon, in education, or in editorial and fashion-related work.

This is the beginning of your new career, work hard, stay inspired, think big, and all your dreams will come true.

The Best Education

We teach you everything we know.

With small-class-numbers, we aim to give each student lots of personal attention.The goal is to nurture your development at every stage of the program. The teaching method includes theory, demos, workshops, and extensive practical experience on the student salon floor. This gives students a theoretical understanding of their program and plenty of time to practice new skills in a supervised environment. This is aligned with our hands-on approach, which is designed to build your confidence and expertise in salon services.


HOW WE TEACH

WITH OPEN HEARTS & MINDS....

Instructors teach the theories and techniques necessary to pass the State Board exam. This is supplemented with techniques developed by ARROJO. We apply a modern and creative, precision-based method so we can always create beautiful, wearable, fashionable hair. Creativity is integral to cosmetology and to celebrate their graduation students produce and present their own creative presentation, incorporating the cutting, coloring, styling, and makeup techniques taught on the program, sharing it with their class, family and friends. This is something special, which can stay in a portfolio forever.


GIVING YOU A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

WORK WITH GUEST ARTISTS

A unique part of our curricula is our ability to offer guest demos and lectures from the stylists who work at the multi-award-winning ARROJO studio salon locations. Their insights, experiences, technical and creative know-how help to provide a high-quality education to our students. As the school is also connected to our ARROJO product retail store and further education (ARROJO Academy) companies, we can bring professionals from all areas of the business into the school as an extra source of inspiration, and to help students prepare for any preferred career path.
