Merrillville-based Success Schools, LLC, has been operating a successful barber program since 2002, and recently has expanded its program to include massage and body works therapy.
This fall, they continue to expand, and will begin offering a cosmetology program, including skin and nail care.
The school, located in a 38,000 square-foot facility, operates a discounted clinic that is open to the public. It offers services including men’s haircuts, shaves, and men’s skin care. They also offer table and seated massages in their new, state-of-the art facility. The cosmetology school will offer services including skin, hair and nail care for the entire family.
“Our goal is to provide the spa experience for the clients at affordable rates and to allow our students many models on which to work,” said Joe Barsic, director of education.
Graduates of the program can start another Success Schools discipline at a 50 percent discounted price within a year of graduation.
“This allows an expansion of knowledge in the field for our graduates and a greater potential to reach personal goals,” said Nancy Barsic, Success Schools president. “this idea is modeled after the personal services schools in Europe, where students spend a longer period of time in school to learn multiple disciplines in personal care to earn optimal income.”
Success Schools, LLC, is now enrolling for the barber and the massage and body works therapy classes. Enrollment for the cosmetology program will be announced in the fall. All the programs are taught in the Merrillville location, and barber classes are offered in Chicago, as well. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
