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. At this time, Brittany Beauty School became part of the Learning Institute for Beauty Sciences.
In 2004, the school was established as an independent institution and the name was changed back to its original, Brittany Beauty School. In addition, Gary Ferrara partnered with his nephew, Vincent J Ferrara, and opened a second location in the Bronx.
In 2010, the partners purchased a third school, Gloria Francis School of Make-Up Artistry in Hicksville, New York, expanding the courses to include Esthetics and Waxing.
In 2016, Brittany Beauty School re-branded it's name and is now known as Brittany Beauty Academy. Also that year, the academy acquired The Hair Design Institute in New York City and Brooklyn, bringing the school system to 4 locations across 3 boroughs and Long Island.
Brittany Beauty Academy, a premiere school for appearance enhancement, offering multiple programs including Hairdressing & Cosmetology, Esthetics, Nail Technology, Waxing and Makeup Artistry, with courses available in multiple languages.
Our mission is to afford our students the opportunity of a quality education in the appearance enhancement field. We 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.
