About Designs School of Cosmetology

We are Designs School of Cosmetology, Inc., a nationally accredited provider of salon and spa education training for students seeking careers as cosmetologists, estheticians and manicurists.

A School at Work

Design’s School of Cosmetology was established to provide a service to the community and to offer educational programs in the field of Cosmetology. With this in mind, we continually survey the profession to keep abreast of current trends, designs and techniques required by employers. Instructors give “individual” as well as “class” instruction. This combination helps students to realize their goals. Each program of instruction qualifies the student for the California State Board of Cosmetology licensing examination.

At Design’s School of Cosmetology, it is the objective to provide the student with the education necessary, to not only pass the licensing exam, but to be an asset to the profession of Cosmetology and to become a success in whatever area of Cosmetology the student desires. We place emphasis on how to be successful in the salon, and how to create the lifestyle that you desire. This means hard work, dedication and practice on your part. The degree of your success will depend on the effort you are willing to expend during the entire course of your training.


Both campuses, Paso Robles and Pleasanton, are accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). The National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency.
