We love being a part of our vibrant industry and community. Here are some of the opportunities you can enjoy as part of your education:

Off-site Activities

For exceptional students who have the talent, dedication, and time, we offer participation in our SKA special events and promotional activities. From fashion shows, to volunteer services for those in need, to local charity events, SKA’s reputation as a leading Utah cosmetology school, affords our students many unique opportunities beyond the classroom and service floor.

Master of the Arts Days

Staying on top of current trends and collaborating with established successful professionals is a priority at SKA. Several times each year, we sponsor a Master of the Arts Day to inspire our students to reach for their dreams by meeting dynamic leaders in the field of cosmetology. Many of Utah’s top stylists as well as national platform artists and educators have visited our students to share personal success stories, creative expertise, and practical business tips to inspire our students to dream big as they map out their career plans.


Our students have the opportunity to embrace their individual vision in our SKA Hair Competitions. All our students are invited to compete in a variety of themed competitions such as the Fantasy Hair, Before and After Hair & Make Up, and Color competitions where our students’ creativity and skills are showcased for the whole school and their professional portfolio if they choose.

Alumni Connection

We at SKA love our students. Stay in touch with us after you complete your program for continued participation in our Master of the Arts Day as well as other educational opportunities.
