About Our School

Proudly educating aspiring hairstylists and beautifying local residents for years, TONI&GUY® Hairdressing Academies have resided in and around Phoenix since 2002. The most recent of these, our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy in Scottsdale, came to be in May of 2011. Nestled in The Pavilions at Talking Stick – a well-known and well-regarded retail center on the east side of the Phoenix/Scottsdale area that boasts open-air shopping, dining, and entertainment – our 12,000 square-foot cosmetology school stands out for all the right reasons. The space is modern, edgy, clean, professional, and undeniably salon-like providing a unique student and customer experience unlike anything else around.

Contributing to our educational and experiential uniqueness is the skilled team of directors and instructors at our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy. For instance, one of the directors at our cosmetology school in Scottsdale has been involved in creating three different looks for the TONI&GUY national collection, and their work has been published in numerous collection books over the years. Additionally, with over 80 combined years of experience, our instructors are experts at transferring their technical and industry knowledge through a variety of teaching methods.

Getting Involved is Important to Us

Further cementing our spot as a top cosmetology school amongst many other hair design schools and hair stylist schools in the Phoenix area, our TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy was featured on a hair product knowledge and awareness segment for 3TV News, dubbed the official hair partner of Phoenix Fashion Week, and involved with the Kick Off The Super Bowl In Style charity fashion show. Our hair school's involvement with Phoenix Fashion Week has been well documented, with our students volunteering their hair skills for the runway shows and our Scottsdale cosmetology school playing host to events like the 2013 Emerging Designer Challenge and 2014 Runway Beauty Forecast. Anything we can do to support the people who continue to support us, we'll do!

Talk Around Town

Aimee Stockton

Best cosmetology school to attend hands down. The education and salon floor experience are better than you can get anywhere else. Will miss this place when I graduate!

Gabriel Diamond

Attended a different cosmetology school prior and ended up leaving halfway through. Then looked into TONI&GUY and it's the best choice I've ever made. The staff and all the instructors were amazing! Our technique is so advanced. I'm so proud to come from such an amazing brand and company.
