MEI Academy of Cosmetology Brownsville TX 

This barber school will teach you all you need to know to become a hair stylist in 9 months of full-time education. The program will prepare you to pass the TDLR State Board exam and fulfill all the practical requirements you need to achieve a license at the end of the program — working without this license can lead to fines of thousands of dollars, destroying your chance of a career. At MEI Academy, you will also have the opportunity to attend seminars by celebrity barbers to learn specialty skills, where you will improve your abilities and increase your employability.

Salon & Spa Institute

Learn all you need to be successful in the beauty industry, including practical and professional skills, by studying at the SSI. The school offers three different courses leading to distinct careers:

  • The cosmetology program is a 1,500-hour hands-on course covering all elements of beauty and wellness. You will receive instruction on cosmetology theory, communication, and people skills and will practice techniques on mannequins.
  • The esthetics course is a 750-hour program on advanced skin care and makeup. Learn about treatments, techniques, facials, and more.
  • If you are already a cosmetologist or esthetician and would like to teach others, you should take the student instructor course. Upon graduation, you can become a licensed operator (in hair, skin, and nails) or facialist.

Southern Careers Institute

At SCI, you can gain your cosmetology diploma after 50 weeks of training in all aspects of beauty, including hair, skin, nails, health and safety, and business. You will acquire skills in cutting, coloring, salon management, hair styling, facials, makeup, scalp treatment, waxing, perms, and manicuring. Plus, the course leads to more than just the essential cosmetology license — upon graduation, you will be prepared to take examinations for the Sassoon ABC Colouring, Sassoon ABC Cutting, and Nuts and Bolts Professional certifications. MEI Academy of Cosmetology Brownsville TX is a great choice if you’re looking to become a professional barber and want to learn all there is to know about the trade to perfect your skills and abilities. However, if you are considering specializing in a different area or want to keep your options open, a school like the Salon & Spa Institute or Southern Careers Institute may be better for you.

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”


Bonnie M
