10 REASONS WHY ICBAS

IS THE INTELLIGENT CHOICE FOR
TOP-NOTCH TRAINING

The ICBAS cutting edge educational systems and solutions provide students with the academic and hands-on experiences they need to embark on rewarding careers in the Beauty Industry. ICBAS’ students are the most sought-after professionals in the salon and spa industry. Here are some of the reasons why:

Instructors

The staff of top professional instructors at ICBAS is dedicated to assisting and preparing students for successful careers in their newly acquired business. You will receive practical and technical training based upon the most innovative curricula in the industry. You will take a written and a practical exam on a weekly basis, so that your strengths and weaknesses can be discovered and addressed by the instructors. Thanks to our international reputation, we are able to provide multilingual instructors in a variety of languages.

Professional Products

ICBAS students use professional products commonly found in salons and spas. Professionals in the beauty industry must have a thorough understanding of products, their ingredients and uses, and how to retail the proper products according to their clients’ needs. As a student at ICBAS, you will learn all there is to know about a wide variety of products directly from special trainers and guest speakers brought in from the manufacturers of those products.

Guest Educators

ICBAS has deep-rooted relationships throughout the beauty industry, which assures that students receive the latest news, trends and updates straight from industry leaders. Guest speakers and educators are a major component of the ICBAS experience.

Professional Kit

You will receive professional tools and equipment in your student kit, which you will use throughout the practical training sessions and beyond.

State of the Art Training Facility

ICBAS provides the most advanced equipment necessary for each course of instruction. As a student, you will have the opportunity to work with and master the latest equipment and techniques in the beauty industry.

Customized Media Library

All of our students have access to our customized media library, which contains the latest books, DVDs and other educational materials.

Real-World Salon Experience

By the time you graduate from ICBAS, you will have lots of real-world experience under your belt. The majority of that experience comes from our campus “student clinics”. ICBAS provides actual customers with low-cost services performed by our students, under supervision by licensed instructors. You will learn first-hand how to perform various services on real clients; how to provide excellent customer service; how to build your clientele; and how to promote retail products and add-on services — all critical components of a successful career in the beauty industry.

State Board Mock Training

All of our students receive on-going training in preparation for the State Board Licensing exams, including vital Mock Board Training by a State Board Specialist Instructor. One of the classrooms at the ICBAS campus is set up like an actual State Board exam room, so that you will have the opportunity to practice in the same setting in which you will eventually take your own exam. We feel that practicing in such a setting will make you more comfortable and at ease on the actual exam day.

Student Competitions

As a student at ICBAS, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of competitions within our school, including quarterly in-campus competitions, as well as “special occasion” competitions, such as the Halloween Fantasy Makeup and June Bride Complete Makeover. Our students also participate in International Hair and Makeup Competitions, past winners of which have walked away with valuable gifts and trophies.

Back-stage Events

Thanks to ICBAS’ reputation for excellence, our students are frequently invited to participate in charity events and other types of special events, including fashion shows, photo shoots, beauty pageants, bridal shows, etc., where they work on models’ hair, makeup and nails.
