Welcome to the Independence College of Cosmetology

Founded in 1960, Independence College of Cosmetology resides in a large facility in historic Independence, Missouri with ample free parking. The College meets and exceeds the expectations of beauty salons in the community. We accomplish this by educating students to be proficient in areas surpassing simple licensure.

All programs are taught in English.

Our mission is to enhance the growth and skills of our students by providing Pivot Point International training as the basis of the cosmetology curriculum. Pivot Point is the most widely used and accepted cosmetology training program in the world.

At Independence College of Cosmetology, we follow the CIDESCO training curriculum for our esthetic students so they are able to work worldwide. CIDESCO is the international organization for estheticians that study skin care, body care, natural nail care, hair removal and make-up.

Our goal is to provide world-class education so our students and graduates can provide a superior level of customer satisfaction. We provide the skills and knowledge for graduates to pass the State Board exam and be prepared for careers anywhere in the world.

Our Estheticians are trained to work worldwide!

Imagine a career you love; working internationally,
or working for a cruise line.  If you decide to work locally you’ll have an extensive education
in skin and body care. You’ll be able to transfer to other states with minimal effort.
Anything less would be a waste.

It’s Your Choice!
