• Plano ISD, TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy Launch New Cosmetology Program Partnership for Students

    During their regular meeting on Tuesday, January 10, the Plano ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved a new partnership with the TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy to launch a cosmetology program for Plano ISD juniors and seniors.

    Plano ISD is the first school district nationwide to offer this joint collaboration with the TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy. Students will be selected based on a lottery and will attend the Academy starting in the fall of their junior year. Successful completion of the two-year program will allow students to take the state cosmetology licensing exam.

    “Throughout the fall semester, Plano ISD met with TONI&GUY leadership to develop a partnership for juniors and seniors to attend their Plano Academy, learn the knowledge and skills required and begin their career,” said Plano ISD Career & Technical Education Director Karen Buechman. “Through learning experiences in innovative and rigorous programs like the one with TONI&GUY, our students will have access to industry professionals and experiences to become leaders in a global workforce.”

    Current Plano ISD 10th grade students and families interested in learning more are invited to attend an Open House on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy located at 1921 Preston Road, Ste 2022, Plano, TX 75093. 

    The 2023-2024 Selection Form is now open for interested sophomores and must be submitted by 9:00 p.m. on February 10, 2023. Learn more about the program, cost and selection process by visiting the Plano ISD TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy page.
