About American Beauty College


At American Beauty College we have a plan. We’ve been working on perfecting our curriculums to provide you with an education you can be proud of. Our main objectives are to get you licensed, to prepare you to sit for the state board exam, and to give you some of the skills needed to work in the beauty or barbering industries. Yes, our goals are really that simple.

Our Philosophy

Whether you want to be a makeup artist, a hair colorist, a master fader, or a nail design guru, it’s on you and you alone! It comes down to three things:

  1. How often you practice your skill set.
  2. Your personality (which goes a long way).
  3. If you believe in yourself and your skills enough to turn what you love into a lasting career, to persist even when things get tough.

It may seem blunt, but we want you to know that here at American Beauty College you get the truth. We will never lie to you or misdirect you.

We want you to know what you’re getting into and believe in yourself to do it and to practice, practice, practice. We can show you, but we cannot be your hands. Only you can strive for perfection in your work. Yes we can grade you, but you’re the one who has to really live up to the score.

Always ask yourself, “Was that my best work? What could I have done better?” Questioning yourself is the biggest part of learning and growing. Embrace it. You’ll be happy you did.

What we offer here is the opportunity and time for you to practice, we give you learning objectives and fundamental skills in your selected field of study whether it be barbering, cosmetology, manicuring, etc… We give you dedicated time to prepare for the state test, which is ultimately the end goal. Your potential doesn’t end there!

Our goal for you is to take what you love and make it your own.

Passing the test is small part of your education, being passionate about having a job that you love is really what it’s all about.

Our History

Our family-owned business started with Cynthia’s Beauty Academy in the city of Bell, CA when a then 24 year-old Juana Roman loved to do hair. She loved it so much she started a class, and that class grew from five students to 25, from 25 students to its prime of 300 students ALL who LOVED cosmetology.

In 2007, she retired and sold it for what she thought was going to be her goodbye from the beauty industry.

Or so she thought…

Her daughters Angelyne and Jennifer Roman, having grown up in a beauty school, wanted that same working environment they knew and loved from watching their mom all those years. Cynthia’s had taken them all over the world, they learned hair trends, and lived and breathed beauty everyday. It was just a part of them. They did all the girls’ hair and makeup for their junior high and high school dances. They learned to use beauty and develop it into other aspects of their professional lives. Most importantly they learned to have people leave them feeling beautiful on the inside while they looked it on the outside.

So in 2013, low and behold, American Beauty College was acquired, and now we’re back and doing it again.

This school started small. So tiny in fact it’s crazy to see how much we’ve grown in just five short years.

Jennifer remembers arriving at ABC when there were only five students in her class, and she and her best friend made it seven. After a lot of years, and some ups and downs, our family’s love and dedication to ABC has grown to two locations, a lot of graduates, working cosmos and barbers, and many salon/barbershop owners. We really couldn’t be more proud, our hearts are truly full.

ABC Pride

For those students who embraced their education and took responsibility for their career goals and dreams from the start, we applaud you for having embraced hard work and dedication. We congratulate all who have and will embark upon the BEAUTY AND BARBERING INDUSTRIES AS A CAREER CHOICE. We know it isn’t always easy, but for this family it has definitely been worth it and we will help you every step of the way.

So that is us.

Please feel free to contact or message us at any time, or you can drop by one of our two locations in either West Covina or Palmdale. We love getting to know people who love beauty/barber things like we do!
