Your new career awaits!


Serious about style? Say no more.

Amber’s has been around for more than 80 years, but make no mistake: This isn’t your mother’s cosmetology school. Our hands-on teaching model means you’ll get loads of first-hand experience working with a diverse clientele, and our small class sizes means everyone gets one-on-one time with an instructor.

Visiting stylists and other guest lecturers keep the curriculum fresh and dynamic, and a laid-back atmosphere lets our students do great work while having fun. It all comes through in the smiles you see—and the laughs you hear—as you walk the aisles in our salon.

Ever wondered where a cosmetology license could take you?

Career options range from stylists, to educators, to sales representatives. The possibilities with a cosmetology license are endless!
More importantly, the beauty industry in Indiana is thriving. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment for barbers, cosmetologists, and other personal appearance workers is projected to grow faster than other occupations. By 2020, there will be around 9,800 cosmetology-related jobs in Indiana alone.

It’s a secure, flexible, and opportunistic career that will endure through tough economic times and flourish in times of economic growth. The beauty industry is a “recession-proof” career choice, as personal care jobs cannot be outsourced, and are always in demand. Hours are flexible, and it’s a creative industry that is constantly changing as new techniques and technology are invented.

So, as you think about taking the steps to start your career at Amber’s what’s not to love?
