Our wonderful students explain why Manning Academy is the choice for Cosmetology here in the Pacific Northwest.


From Garrett Olmstead:

I started the cosmetology program at Manning Academy in 2012, and it was the best decision I have made in my life. I began interning at Tangles Hair Salon while still a student at Manning. Upon graduation, they offered me a position as a full time stylist, which I have been for the past 2 years. I have a full schedule of clients, and am preparing to become an educator for an international product line. Manning Academy kick started my cosmetology career and introduced me to my future wife. I got the job and the girl! What more could a guy ask for? Connect with Garret on Facebook.
