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:

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

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, or something else. We give you dedicated time to prepare for the state test, which is ultimately the end goal. Your potential doesn’t end there!


Why American Beauty College?


We want to see you succeed! Our students are our main focus and we are here to help you in any way possible. In addition to our comprehensive and active learning curriculum, we offer one on one counseling with our professional staff, employment placement, and active networking events for our students and alumni after your education here at ABC is complete.


With over 40 years of experience in the beauty industry, we can lead you in the right direction, according to your interests and program. Our goal-oriented mindset and planning will guide you along a path to your very own, successful, and lasting career.


While some people are comfortable at their normal, daily jobs, by opening up this page you obviously aren’t one of those people! A career in the beauty or barbering industry will allow you to be social, work freely as an entrepreneur, make your own schedule, possibly even work with celebrities, and control your future by reflecting on your work. You may even decide you would like to pass on your learned skills and become an instructor! We will always be here to help you and guide you, but your work and ethic will ultimately reflect you, and the type of career you will succeed in.


Lucky for you, there will never be a dull moment with this industry. There will always be the newer, more advanced, trendy way, and techniques to do things. Always giving you options to adapt and change with the new waves, or roll with your traditional, rooted ways, possibly even combining the two. As in life, education and learning doesn’t stop at the basics and there is always further advancement. At ABC we offer master classes, opportunities to be involved in beauty conferences ,and some friendly competition.

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 of 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 every day. 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 at 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.

Jennifer remembers arriving at ABC when there were only five students in her class, and she and her best friend made it to seven. After a lot of years, and some ups and downs, our family’s love and dedication to ABC have 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.
