Student loans, shmudent loans! We have all heard at least one friend complain about student loan debt. Truth is, beauty students end up paying twice as much at schools that offer loans vs. schools that do not. And with interest? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Imagine the freedom of graduating without debt!

By attending a cosmetology or barbering arts program that doesn’t offer student loans you could avoid the potential pitfalls of student loan debt. Unexpected expenses, changes to an individual’s financial situation, high interest rates and limited deferral options are significant disadvantages of student loans.

So are student loans a necessary evil standing between you and a barbering arts or cosmetology education? Not anymore. At Western Beauty Institute we offer several program options to accommodate our students’ busy schedules and provide flexible tuition payment plans that fit a variety of budgets.

Our cosmetology and barbering arts students complete advanced classes and gain skills in cutting edge beauty services such as Brazilian hair treatments, eyelash extensions and more. We do everything we can to make sure our students maximize their value and potential in today’s competitive beauty industry.
