The Two Sides of Cosmetology

Launie Morgan and her team of cosmetology instructors taught the art of beauty together for many years before they became the Mark Anthony Academy of Cosmetology. Under their new owner Mark Anthony, they have rededicated themselves to giving their students an education they can be proud of. The business they have built together over the years is double-sided: students receive hands-on training from experts in the industry, while clients receive discounted treatments and cuts with the highly trained instructors keeping a close watch at all times.

Launie is the academy’s operations manager. She and her instructors have been practicing and teaching in the industry for so many years that they frequently see daughters, nieces and granddaughters returning to the academy to learn the skills their family members acquired there years prior.

We've always tried to make sure the girls walk out that door with good value. What I mean by good value is a decent education that’s going to make them ready for this industry — not just book ready. - Launie Morgan, Operations Manager

High-Standards Education in Cosmetology

"We've always tried to make sure the girls walk out that door with good value," says Launie. "What I mean by good value is a decent education that’s going to make them ready for this industry – not just book ready." Launie and her fellow instructors make sure that their students are industry ready by providing them real-life skills and practical working tools that are well above student-level quality.

Launie explains that cosmetology is no longer regulated by the government or any official organization. It used to be that professionals in the industry took an exam to be licensed and had to annually renew that licence. “They had inspectors going into salons to make sure everyone working in salons were licensed,” she recalls. In a world where anyone can say they're a cosmetics expert, it takes something extra to be a cut above the rest. Launie cautions customers against inexperienced practitioners, and says that the Mark Anthony Academy of Cosmetology provides the training to avoid long-term harm that can be caused when improperly administering a waxing treatment, for example.

It’s not unusual for clients to return to the academy to enjoy the students' work, which goes to show the quality of education they are receiving. Clients appreciate the special attention to detail the students show and are never let down by their care and creativity.

“Since we came here under Mark Anthony...we've changed everything to how we want to see it taught to make that student salon ready,” Launie says. “We uphold those standards.” For aspiring estheticians, Mark Anthony Academy of Cosmetology could be the career jump-start they can't afford to miss.
