Every year, MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education program recognizes outstanding achievement by beauty schools across the country. Hundreds of applications are submitted by individual and multi-unit schools in hopes of being acknowledged for ideas and best practices worth sharing.

The 2015 honorees were announced at the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) Annual Convention & Expo, October 23-26, 2015, in Phoenix, Arizona. There are categories for both individual schools and chains.

The 2016 Excellence in Education entries are due August 31, 2016.
