Minnesota Cosmetology Education Center was established in 1950, in a residential home that was converted to a school setting. In 1988, new owners purchased the school, and revamped the curriculum to focus on the salon industry; taking on the education of the business side of cosmetology. Curriculum focuses on cosmetology, sales training, communication, fashion, and technical ability.
In 2003, Minnesota Cosmetology Education Center was acquired by Terry L. Myhre and Kaye Myhre, who renamed the institution Minnesota School of Cosmetology, and moved the facility from South Saint Paul to a location in Oakdale, a suburb of St. Paul Minnesota.
