ClassroomWe were established in 1960 by former owner, Norma Loucks. Ms. Loucks herself was a licensed cosmetologist, educator and teacher. Her concern was NOT the quantity of students, but the PROFESSIONAL QUALITY AND SKILL LEVEL of ALL completing students!
In 1973, Dianna Martin Peterson began her Cadet Instructor Training with Ms. Loucks, and worked to purchase Beau Monde College of Hair Design in order to continue the standards and philosophy articulated and espoused by Ms. Loucks. In 1975 Ms. Martin Peterson acquired Beau Monde College of Hair Design; continuing the progressive ideas and techniques firmly established within the Institution; and advancing in the areas of Hair Design, Facial Technology, and Nail Technology for both men and women.

The Pivot Point Philosophy
Hair Design is an art form and you are the artist!
Pivot Point's educational philosophy was first developed by Leo Passage. As a world champion hair designer, he spent years creating his unique Scientific Approach to teaching hair design. It's based on the belief that hair design is an art form with hair as the medium.
Creativity without limits.
This artistic approach guides students and salon professionals through the basic elements of design: form, texture and color. They learn to visualize the elements as one, then mix and match them to create a selection of hair designs that's virtually endless.
Scientifically proven: it works!
To validate this revolutionary teaching method, we have consulted the University of Chicago Fine Arts Department and art design specialists and hair theorists the world over. Together, they have developed a total system of education known as Pivot Point's Scientific Approach to Hair Sculpture and Design. Register now and begin or enhance your beautiful career!
