Over the next 30 years the college added eight houses to accommodate student housing needs. Andy Smith, along with his wife Stephanie, now handle all the day-to-day operations.

2009: Model College of Hair Design building was torn down and rebuilt to be one of the Midwest's finest educational facilities.

This School is up-to-date with the times and styles. Here I've had the chance to learn from the best. The owners and instructors are very personable and helpful. They never quit teaching! The more you want to learn, the more they teach! This college gave me the opportunity to go far in my career as a cosmetologist! - Jeny, Brainerd, MN
