Mission Statement

The mission of Alaska Academy of Advanced Cosmetology is to provide students an opportunity to achieve a quality post-secondary education in the fields of cosmetology and massage, and to enhance the quality of life by serving others to look and feel their best in body and mind.

The Academy provides exciting and individualized training for students to learn the most up to date practices in hairdressing, barbering, advanced manicuring, pedicuring and esthetics while taking great pride in the tangible experiences provided to our students and community. Staffed by highly trained and motivated instructors, we maintain a high teacher to student ratio to ensure students receive personalized instruction.

This program is designed in three phases. The first phase is in the classroom with an instructor. The second phase takes place on the clinic floor practicing hands-on techniques. After mastering the basic skills, students enter the final phase of training, which prepares students for Alaska’s State board testing and future job placement. There is a high expectation of students, which include punctuality and dedication while maintaining a professional relationship with instructors and clients. Use of effective communication skills is also emphasized, a necessary requirement to deliver quality customer service.

Kimberly Savland has worked in the cosmetology industry for 25 years. She holds an instructor license to teach in the fields of Esthetics, Hairdressing, Barbering, and Advanced Manicuring.
