Pop star Beyoncé and her mother and business partner Tina Knowles recently founded the Beyoncé Cosmetology Center as part of Phoenix House, a non-profit provider of substance abuse services since 1967. Located in Brooklyn, the Phoenix House Career Academy is a residential substance abuse treatment program that offers several fully accredited vocational training programs on site. The Beyoncé Cosmetology Center offers a seven-month cosmetology training program for adult men and women.

The cosmetology program is designed to teach students the theory and practical skills required to meet the New York State cosmetology licensure exam. In addition to hair care, the course includes a module on nail care, skin care, and makeup skills. Students also learn salon computer software and customer service skills while receiving vocational counseling, job readiness support, and placement assistance.

After completing 500 class hours and a series of proficiency tests working on mannequins, students are eligible to work with real clients. The Beyoncé Cosmetology Center will offer complimentary haircuts to a wide range of community partners, enabling its more advanced students to refine and practice their skills.
