Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology

Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology

Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology currently has 7 locations in South Carolina with a plan to add several more. All of the schools are located on major roadways and close to local restaurants and shopping areas, making it convenient for our students and patrons.

Facility
Not only they have classrooms with the latest technology, they also feature a salon-like environment where students receive the opportunity to get hands-on training in all of the leading-edge styles and techniques.

Ownership
Kenneth Shuler Schools of Cosmetology is owned and operated by Kenneth Shuler. Mr. Shuler has been in the beauty industry for more than 50 years. Forty of those years have been dedicated to providing quality education in this industry.

Accreditation
All of our campuses are accredited through the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). This accrediting agency ensures that our schools maintain the highest level of excellence.

Curriculum
Kenneth Shuler is dedicated to providing academic excellence by emphasizing challenging and inspiring components. We take great pride in offering the most advanced curriculum available to beauty schools across the country–Milady.

In addition, Kenneth Shuler is the only cosmetology school in South Carolina to offer the exclusive Milady Business Fundamentals program. This program incorporates business training into the regular cosmetology curriculum and gives future cosmetologists the knowledge they’ll need to run successful businesses following graduation and licensure.

Student Recognition
Many of our students have competed and won in the South Carolina Hair Competition.
Several of our students’ work has been published in national and international magazines. In a 2010 edition of Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide, the work of 32 KS students was published!
Each school recognizes students on a regular basis and provides certificates of achievement.
Every graduate is acknowledged on their last day of school and given a fond farewell as they enter the cosmetology field as an industry professional!

Our graduates play a special part in the Kenneth Shuler tradition and are always included in all of our activities such as groundbreakings, career days, and advisory boards.

In an effort to enhance students’ educational experience, we provide learning opportunities from guest speakers and technical experts. This allows students the opportunity to network with industry professionals and begin building a base for their own professional careers.

Long-Term Goals
Kenneth Shuler is continuously improving upon the exceptional education that our students already receive by attending classes and conventions that offer the latest teaching methodologies and current trends.

Several times a year, each school holds Career Days. This is an opportunity for local salons to come to our campuses to meet, interview, and hire our senior students.

Prior to Career Days, staff from Kenneth Shuler provide students with training on resume writing, professional dress, interviewing skills, and building a business. In addition, students are required to put together a portfolio that showcases their achievements and successes as a cosmetology student. These portfolios also contain a professional resume and are used to aid students as they network with salons and search for potential jobs.

Educators
Our instructors are all licensed by the South Carolina Board of Cosmetology. Every instructor is required to attend 15 contact hours of continuing education each year. In addition, our schools hold in-service training twice a year and all of our instructors are required to go through the Methods of Teaching course that is taught by our Educational Director, Angie Shuler, who has more than 30 years of experience in the classroom. The purpose of the Methods of Teaching course is to ensure that there is a consistency in teaching methodologies.

Kenneth Shuler is committed to giving back to the communities we serve. This includes participating with organizations like:
Cuts for Cancer
Locks of Love
Sistercare
Cut-It-Out
The Heartworm Project
The Great American Bake Sale

Kenneth Shuler does not limit the students education by only using one brand of product. It is important that the students are well-rounded in different products that are available to them.
