We’re a private educational institution approved to operate by the Alabama Board of Cosmetology and the Alabama Board of Post Secondary Education. Our goal is to provide students with knowledge, experience, and mentorship while pursuing a certificate in cosmetology and nail technology. With dedicated instructors and two Alabama locations, we’re here to help you start your journey in the beauty industry.

Our History

Terri Lancaster opened the Alabama School of Nail Technology & Cosmetology in 2011 after running her successful salon in Jackson for nearly two decades. She opened the Jackson campus at 202 Commerce Street, where it’s still located today. In 2017, the school purchased the building next door, enabling it to double its floor space and host more students and classes. Our Saraland location opened, becoming the second campus for the school.

Alabama School of Nail Technology & Cosmetology has welcomed hundreds of students over the years, helping them build a skill set they can use to launch their careers. We can’t wait to welcome many more students into our Cosmetology and Nail Technology programs.
