The Nathan Layne Difference

Nathan Layne Institute was born from a belief that beauty education can aspire to be far better than teaching to an exam. We believe that being successful in the beauty business requires more than just mastering the skills.

Choosing Nathan Layne Institute means learning from top professionals who have a deep understanding of the art and science of hair cutting, styling, and coloring, as well as the other disciplines represented among our beauty programs.

Our owner Nathan was a national educator traveling throughout the western United States teaching salon professionals using multiple product lines. He saw an opportunity to improve beauty school by ensuring that his real industry experience would be part of what students learn.

And this is the Nathan Layne difference: Our curriculum was designed by experts who have themselves successfully owned nationally recognized salons. It’s part of our DNA. Every step of the way, we aim to teach you the salon business and how to be profitable in this industry.

We have helped numerous star graduates develop into six-figure hairdressers. You, too, can attend a school that is locally owned by heavy hitters in the industry and be taught by instructors who stay on the cutting edge of techniques, trends, and fashion, focused on your success.
