Through their Studio Luma program, the Regency Beauty Institute has a strong focus on artistry, creativity, style, and talent. You get to learn at your own pace during each of their weekly sessions.

Each class, called an episode, is organized by theme, which features a salon skill and an actual salon situation. These include dealing with indecisive clients to learning how to calm a bride on her wedding day. In addition to their live-action films, you also get one-on-one time with your instructor and open-book tests to reinforce what you have been learning in class. And of course, you get to practice your learning on actual hair. Your instructor is beside you, guiding you and answering questions.

What SCI Students Are Saying

“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.”

Raquel S.

“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.”
