Welcome to the Alexander Paul Institute of Hair Design

Backed by over 35 years of experience, Alexander Paul Institute of Hair Design is an elite learning institution that fosters creativity and achievement to produce hairstylists and estheticians that graduate to become top performers in the hair salon and spa industry.  With a very low student-to-teacher ratio, Alexander Paul Institute provides direct and personalized cosmetology and esthetics education for each and every student.
