Learn make-up applications, skincare, facial treatments, body wraps, LED light therapy, microdermabrasion and hair removal!
Our beauty colleges are contemporary, practical, and offer accredited professional training programs.

For those in Southern Oregon, we have beauty schools located in Springfield and Medford to give you flexible options for your cosmetology training!
The Northwest College School of Beauty teaching methodology is based on small groups of students. This allows for plenty of one-on-one instruction while giving students the benefit of group teaching and discussions.
The Esthetics program is performance-oriented. "Performance oriented" means students must not only complete their clock hours, but also complete all required academic courses and laboratory projects, perform practical operations in a simulated salon environment, pass written and practical examinations, and meet state safety and sanitation requirements.
Each learning module in the Esthetics program covers one subject, using the student text, review, instructor presentations and hands-on training. With the instructors' assistance in demonstrating and organizing the learning sequences, the student experiences a program of learning achievements.
Esthetics Learning Modules:
- Facial Massage and Treatments
- Facial Machines and Services
- Hair Removal Services including Brazilian Waxing
- Makeup and False Lash Application
- Cosmetology Business Concepts
- Simulated Salon Training and Experience
