Established in 1986, the Cairns Beauty Academy Salon and School is a Registered Training Organisation. It aims to equip students with an extensive knowledge of beauty services, encompassing all the various facets of cosmetics and their use, and an understanding of the history and development of the beauty culture. Courses are offered to local and overseas students. Students have the opportunity to enrol in February or July each year, with 2 diploma intakes per year. They only take 12 students per class so it is very personal and easy learning for overseas and domestic students.
