Our cosmetology program focuses on learning 11 classics cuts and 9 color techniques with basic instruction in makeup and skin care. We also provide our students with valuable personal and professional development, product knowledge and a salon experience.
Colonial on the outside and modern within, our barber and cosmetology school began as Ricci’s Academy of Cosmetology in 1992 and converted to a TONI&GUY® Hairdressing Academy / TIGI Creative School in September of 2013. Our easy-to-find location in Newtown’s bustling South Main Street Marketplace allows us to serve aspiring hair professionals from Danbury to Bridgeport, Waterbury to Shelton, and everywhere in between. Furthermore, our 7,800 square feet of modern, well-appointed classroom and salon space delivers an upscale feel with decidedly New England flair. Our students, staff, and clientele find our location to be extremely convenient, as the surrounding area is dotted with eateries and some of the most unique shops in all of Fairfield County.
“My experience with TONI&GUY taught me the importance of technical discipline, while providing access and exposure to the renowned creative talents of the company.”
