What is Textures Institute of Cosmetology about you ask?

Textures Institute of Cosmetology was founded by Arthur Harris in 2010.  With over 20 years of experience as licensed cosmetologist attentively listening to his clients, Mr. Harris developed the Translucent hair care line to address the unique needs of textured hair that were not being met with current products.  Similar to his vision for the need of quality products for textured hair, Mr. Harris also saw the need for a school to that not only teaches students to be knowledgeable about all of hair types, but also professionalism and customer satisfaction.  Staffed with certified instructors with years of experience, Textures Institute of Cosmetology is an environment that will make you into a beauty professional, not just a person who does hair.
