Why Choose Us?
After being a cosmetologist for over 30 years, Vivian Grider, owner and founder of Blueprint Hair Academy, quickly came to the realization that there was a lack of understanding of the African American hair in Cosmetology schools, which mainly teaches and focuses on European hair. With a curriculum that’s taught on natural African American hair & European hair alike by experienced instructors, Blueprint Hair Academy puts its students at an advantage, giving them an edge over most cosmetology schools.
BPH is proudly accredited by the Alabama Board of Cosmetology, offering classes that are 6-8 weeks instead of 12 month courses. This is not only more time efficient for students, but cost efficient as well. With our short term Natural Hair classes, students will only pay a total of $5,100 in tuition compared to $20,00 at other cosmetology schools, which is a savings of over $14,900.
At BPH, we proudly take the hands on approach with our students while teaching the latest and greatest styling techniques. With our state of the art facilities and equipment, by the end of the course each student will have completed 210 hours needed to apply for their Natural Hair license through the Alabama Board of Cosmetology.
