Brittany Beauty School was originally founded in 1968 by Margaret Falcaro. She was the owner and director of Brittany Beauty School in Levittown, New York. In 2000 Brittany Beauty School was purchased by Gary Ferrara a licensed Cosmetologist, Manhattan Salon Owner and 2nd generation school owner and became part of the Learning Institute for Beauty Sciences.
In 2004 the school was spun off as an independent institution and the name was changed back to its original Brittany Beauty School. The Owner, Gary Ferrara partnered with Vincent J Ferrara and opened a second location in the Bronx. And in 2010 the partners purchased a third school, Gloria Francis School of Make-Up Artistry, in Hicksville, LI expanding the course offerings to include Esthetics, and Waxing.
In 2016 Brittany Beauty School was at it again. It acquired Hair Design Institute in New York City and Brooklyn bringing the school system to 5 locations across 3 boroughs and Long Island. As a premiere school for appearance enhancement offering multiple programs including Hairdressing & Cosmetology, Esthetics, Nail Technology, Waxing and Make-Up Artistry and in different languages Brittany Beauty School was no longer a one hit wonder. As such the school system was re-branded for what it is today Brittany Beauty Academy.
Our mission is to afford our students the opportunity of a quality education in the appearance enhancement field. In this way we will impart our students with the knowledge necessary to pass the New York State Board exam and achieve licensure. We further strive to instill a sense of professionalism and enable the graduate to obtain entry-level employment in their chosen field.
Our business plan rests on small classrooms, smaller student to teacher ratios and a commitment to education. Through these 3 simple goals we will keep the personal touch in beauty education.
