About Our School

Located near the popular South Coast Plaza, our 13,000 square-foot standalone cosmetology school began serving aspiring hair professionals and the Costa Mesa community back in 2010. Modern and upscale with an upbeat, supportive, and – most importantly – fun environment, our TONI&GUY® Hairdressing Academy in Costa Mesa is teeming with positive energy. That should be expected when everyone within the walls of our hair school – from our talented students to our team of expert instructors – is doing what they love for a living.

Speaking of our cosmetology instructors, the skills and knowledge they have gained in their 200 combined years of hair industry and educational experience are nothing short of impressive. All of our instructors have completed a certified hair design school or hair stylist school.  It is this expertise that has proudly made us one of the most-awarded cosmetology schools in the national network of TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academies.

Talk Around Town

Cheyenne Pierce

“I’m very thankful to have attended toni&guy for cosmetology school. There were many other options out here in southern California and TONI&GUY gave me the best vibes as far as positivity and friendliness. I felt so welcomed by my first interactions I had. I feel I have a very good foundation to build off of thanks to my education at TONI&GUY!”

Brooke Conner

“Going through TONI&GUY has been such a fulfilling experience. I learned much more than just hair, I learned about myself and my limits and my self-discipline. So grateful for who I have become and where I’m prepared to be because of this academy.”
