Pivot Point is a hands-on learning system that approaches cosmetology from a designer’s perspective and teaches the craft as an art form. It is designed to prepare students for success in their beauty and wellness professional careers.


The goal of the Pivot Point is to teach students the business side of the industry, including knowledge on how to attract, maximize, and retain a client base.
