Who We Are

If you are thinking about going to beauty school, you should know as much about the school as possible. That’s why we want to talk a little bit about ourselves! It’s important to know about the school and it’s instructors, as well as the brands they partner with.

Crave Beauty Academy started back in 2013, but we have more than 25 years of successful experience under our belts. We do hair, skin, and nails, and it’s what we love most. Our passion for these things is why we call ourselves “Crave”!

What it Means to Crave

The name “Crave” is an acronym for a few things that are really important to use and help us to strive be the best beauty school we can!

C – Culture

At Crave we know how important a strong, positive culture is to helping students learn. That’s why we emphasize a positive learning environment with open-mindedness and a constant vision for improvement.

R – Relationships

Being a successful beauty professional is all about maintaining relationships. We value the relationship between students and instructors because we know that the students will need to manage the relationships they have with their clients.

A – Achievement

Our primary concern as a beauty school is the success of our students. Our jobs are to help students to try to become achievers! We’re dedicated to helping our students achieve their personal goals and ambitions as they progress through our programs.

V – Values

We see values in two different ways. First, we believe in helping our students develop important values like integrity, respect, and empowerment. Second, we believe in the intrinsic value of our students. We see each person as the potential they could become!

E – Education

More important than anything else, Crave Beauty Academy is all about education! We only feel satisfied as a beauty school when our students graduate with the education and skills they need to become self-sufficient beauty professionals!

Our Partners

The people you keep as company can often say more about you than anything else. That’s why at Crave Beauty Academy we pick the very best partners the beauty industry has to offer. If you want to see all of our partners, check out the entire list on our professional partners page . We’ll highlight some of our biggest partners here:

You can’t enter the world of nails without knowing about OPI! This company is widely regarded as having some of the very best nail products on the market, and the looks speak for themselves!


When it comes to professional skin-care partnerships, we want nothing but the best, which is why Dermalogica was a match made in heaven for us! We love their passion and expertise for healthy and beautiful skin, and that’s why they’re a perfect fit for us.

Dog Days and Sunrays

Posted on July 1st, 2015 - Written by: Kim McIntosh


It is officially summer, AKA shorts season. A swipe with a fresh razor blade topped with a dollop of lotion and your legs are ready! But wait, you don’t want to be the Snow White of all the bronzed beauties at that summer jamboree this weekend. Girl, your legs could stop traffic. A little color is a MUST. But how do you get it? Do you lounge at the pool for hours soaking up the sun’s rays? Do you hop in the tanning bed a few times a week to gradually build a glow? Or do you stand spread eagle while a machine mists you with a coat of cocoa? All of the options can be overwhelming but don’t panic, we are here to help!

Chocolate and Success

“Crave: verb. To have a very strong desire for something” (www.meriam-webster.com/dictionary). We all have cravings.(Ladies, it’s okay to admit to them.) A craving is a yearning for something (like chocolate!); it’s a hunger to achieve something or to become someone. A guru once said, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, only then you’ll be successful.” Success isn’t determined by a lucky roll of a die. Success isn’t delivered to our doorsteps tied with a pretty pink bow. Success is earned by those who work for it.
