The Story of PCI Academy

We provide our students with the mindset, the behaviors, and the business skill set to allow them to love what they do and create the lifestyle of their dreams. We have been doing it best for over 40 years.

Train to be a salon professional in the top 8% of the industry, whether it be cosmetology, esthetics, advanced practice esthetics, nail technology or massage therapy. Our specialty is teaching not only the timeless and cutting edge technical skills but the business skills necessary to prosper in the most beautiful industry in the world.

Today we have three schools, one located in Ames, Iowa, one in Plymouth, Minnesota and our third in Iowa City, Iowa. Founded in Ames, Iowa in 1978 by the Lokken family, PCI Academy expanded to Minnesota in 2002. We became the model for more than 30 schools around the country.  Our third campus opened in Iowa City, Iowa in June of 2019.

Join us in helping make the world a more beautiful place! Our students, graduates and educators never stop growing.
