Grand Rapids, Michigan
Grand Rapids Beauty School & Cosmetology School
Located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, we’re fortunate enough to call the old historic post office our home — with its unique images on the brick and original sketches and artwork embedded in the façade. This high-energy area, with a ton of foot traffic, is situated in an up-and-coming area and within walking distance to the Van Andel Stadium. it’s no wonder Grand Rapids has been rated one of the best places to raise a family, thousands flock here in the fall to participate in Art Prize, a community event we’re proud to be involved in, as well as many other local charities, including Miranda’s Beautiful U, which focuses on positive self-esteem for school aged girls.
