AACS is Advancing Beauty Careers Through Education
Founded in 1924, we are a national, nonprofit association open to all privately owned schools of cosmetology arts & sciences. Our membership is comprised of cosmetology, skin, nail, barbering and massage schools.
AACS specializes in updating members with information about new teaching methods, current industry events and Washington, DC updates. We do this through a series of seminars, conferences and conventions held throughout the year. Most of all, AACS members act as a family, often helping each other with addressing problems facing Beauty & Wellness Education. This “networking” is often listed as the most important benefit to membership.
