Our History

1952: Irene Smith opened Model College of Hair Design on Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. Irene and her son, Bruce, operated the school until they relocated to the St. Cloud location.

1972: Bruce and Diane Smith moved Model College of Hair Design to St.Cloud, Minnesota. The college was located on the corner of 8th and Division. 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.

My experience at the Model College of Hair Design has been great! I have met many new people and have had a lot of fun being here. Our instructors know every students name and over the months becomes just like a parent. They are always there if you have a question or need help with something, or even if you are having a bad day and need a friend. - Cindy, Pierz, MN
