About Our Peru Campus

The Peru, IL campus is fully equipped to train students for success in cosmetology, nail technology, courses to become a cosmetology teacher and continuing education. In November, 2017 we relocated our campus from downtown LaSalle, to a newly remodeled location that’s easily accessible from Interstate 80 and Route 251. This 7,000 square foot facility offers extra space for our students to learn and grow as cosmetology professionals. We take pride in building on the foundations our students come to the table with and teaching them the most advanced techniques and in-demand skills in the beauty industry.
