Training to Succeed

After completing a total of 1500 hours of training, a student is qualified in both male and female hairstyling. A diploma is awarded by Bruno’s Schools of Hair Design. The graduate must then register as an apprentice in a beauty salon. When competent, the apprentice will take the Ontario Certificate of Qualification examination in order to obtain a certificate for the trade of hairstyling. We offer a very in-depth course. We strive to combine basic with advanced design throughout your studies. To have a place reserved for you, please fill out the attached application and forward it to our schools.

About the Ontario Hairstyling Schools Association

Why should I Choose an OHSA-Member Private Career College?

Not all Private Career Colleges are the same. Some may not have received their accreditation from the Ontario government, and so they fall short of providing students with the higher standards set by the OHSA. Members of the OHSA must adhere to specific by-laws which promote excellent training, updated information on Government legislation and continued support to their instructors.
