Empire Beauty School is a large system of for-profit cosmetology schools in the United States. Headquartered in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, it is the largest system of cosmetology schools in the country.[1][2] Founded in 1946, it currently has over 109 schools nationwide, after purchasing the training academies of Regis Corporation in 2007.[3] It trains students as cosmetologists, estheticians, electrologists, hair stylists and colorists, makeup artists, manicurists and nail technicians.


In 2010, Empire Beauty Schools acquired the Northern Westchester School of Hairdressing and Cosmetology in Peekskill, New York, as well as the International Academy of Cosmetology School in Cincinnati, Ohio.[4][5]

Empire Beauty Schools opened the company's 100th campus in Springfield, Pennsylvania, in 2010. The school was unveiled during Empire Education Group's 100 Days of Empire event.[6]

The newest eco-friendly schools were opened in West Palm Beach, Florida, Pineville, North Carolina, and Paramus, New Jersey. The schools follow on the heels of the Lauderhill, Florida, beauty school which picked up the Green Conscious Salon Certification award from the Florida Association of Beauty Professionals. All of the cosmetology schools incorporated eco-conscious elements such as energy and water saving features.[7][8]
