Our mission at JD Academy of Salon + Spa is to turn YOU into a future salon or spa professional. We want to give you the tools to excel throughout YOUR career. To get you from point A to point B, it’s going to take hard work and dedication from both of us. That doesn’t mean you’re not going to enjoy it!
We want our programs to prepare our students for a career as future beauty professionals. Our curriculum is structured to give you hands-on experience and dedicated classroom support. Your welcoming mentors can assist you with every step of the way.
Since 2010, JD Academy of Salon + Spa has offered cosmetology and esthetician programs in the San Francisco East Bay area. These programs focus on being precise and consistent. Our educators are experts in their fields who want to help you develop your technique. You can choose from two programs, allowing you to focus primarily on hair and skin, or solely on skincare.
In our cosmetology program, you can expect to have scissors in your hand. We start with the fundamentals and work our way up to some of the most advanced techniques in the industry. Work with real clients* to provide hair cuts, custom colors, and trendy styles.
Gain real-world experience in our esthetician program. You’ll have opportunities to practice your skills with friends, family, and clients! You can get hands-on experience performing spa services like facials and hair removal techniques with professional products.
While so many schools focus on quantity, we place a sincere focus on quality. From our curriculum to our dedicated educators, we want quality to be at the heart of what we do. We want students to feel prepared after graduating from JD Academy of Salon + Spa.
Here are a few reasons why an education at our San Francisco East Bay beauty school could be a good choice for you.
There are pieces of our curriculum that require some classroom time. It’s a necessary component. But let’s be honest – you’re not going to become a master of your craft by reading a book. You become a master of your craft by digging in and doing that craft*. That’s exactly what you’ll be doing here at JD Academy of Salon + Spa. Learning your craft.
Our mission is to prepare you for a career in the field. A solid portfolio will be a huge stepping stone to that end. You can have hundreds of opportunities to catalog your work. We offer backdrops and professional lighting to make your work stand out.
JD Academy of Salon + Spa is not a stylist mill. We keep our class sizes between 10 and 20 students to ensure that you’re getting the best education possible. That means more hands-on opportunities, closer relationships, and the opportunity to get your questions answered.
If you have ever considered a career in beauty, schedule a tour of our East Bay campus in Danville, California. We would be happy to show you around, answer your questions, and help you take the next steps to become a beauty professional!
