Why the original “LaJames College”?
We know you have choices. Most of our distance students go past several colleges to get to us. We even have students from out of the Unites States that attend here. Why do that, why travel so far? Read on, because not all colleges are a-like.
The original “LaJames College” is an Iowa beauty school / cosmetology license of 2100 hours & is one of the longest educations in the U.S. for Cosmetology.
This creates a tremendous advantage in licensing. As a college we provide lifetime placement service at no cost to our graduate. As long as we are here we will be there for you.
With these hours, the licensing from state-to-state in the U.S. is outstanding and provides high-level credentials internationally. In our opinion it just makes sense that this advantage therefore extends to those who are interested in attaining the best positions in the profession and those interested in travel. The 2100 hours of training also gives us the opportunity to give you the educational advantage to stand out in today’s Salon & Spa Market. Classes include seeking employment which we help you create resumes, cover letters, and even help you design your own fantasy salon. Haircutting, coloring, artificial nails, business classes, etc…

An International Beauty School
LaJames College & Beauty School
in Mason City, Iowa is one of the few beauty schools in the United States that has permission to teach international students by the department of Immigration and Naturalization. As an international student, the college issues I-20 forms from INS, so a student wishing to study in the United States can apply for a student visa from their own country.
What Makes The original “LaJames College” unique?
Our cosmetology program is actually three programs in one because it also includes portions of the Nail Technology and Skin Care courses in its curriculum that was developed over the past 85 plus years. By choosing the cosmetology program, you will be receiving the best of three courses of study. In combination with this we also teach a European educational system (Pivot Point). You are getting the best of both worlds.
LaJames College is a Beauty School that will give you the opportunity to be prepared for many exciting careers in the beauty industry. This career will give you the opportunity to meet people,
express your creativity and derive a great deal of personal satisfaction. A career in cosmetology is one of the most dynamic and in-demand careers you can choose. In fact, according to an independent survey, almost 40,000 cosmetology jobs went unfilled because there were far more entry-level job openings than there were new cosmetologists, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The employment projections for hairdressers, hairstylists and cosmetologists indicate a need for some 61,600
new professionals. Therefore, in our opinion, career opportunities are plentiful and broad. As a cosmetologist, you interact with others individually on several levels – physically, emotionally and mental outlook. You repeatedly help your clients feel good about themselves. You serve as a teacher, guiding them on how to better care for their professional needs. You enter their personal space; you touch them. Often, great trust develops over time. You influence perspectives and perceptions. Who can measure the level of satisfaction which stems from helping others?
