Ambition is only the first step in a successful career. If you want to stand out in the world of beauty and fashion, you need the right training. But it's not enough to know the fine points of cosmetology or esthetics. You also need to know the business. You need Paul Mitchell to the School Esani Institute.

ESANI stands for Empowerment through Science, Art, Nurturing and Innovation. Our team is committed to helping you reach your goals and preparing you for a successful career in cosmetology. We can teach you to work with all different hair and skin types. We can expose you to international trends and techniques. But we can also give you the business essentials you need to be successful.

Paul Mitchell the School Esani is housed in a 20,000-square-foot facility, located in one of Greater Atlanta's fastest-growing cities. Our Alpharetta campus combines the exciting fashion, art and culture scene with the peaceful suburban feel of the city. We also offer a full range of services in our high-end salon. All work is performed by our students under instructor supervision.


In addition to the standard curriculum, which is required by the state of Georgia, you will learn the Paul Mitchell cutting system through our Core Cutting program. The Core program divides your training into three distinct phases:

  • CORE - Learn the rules! We provide the basics that will help you blend professional skills with personal development.
  • ADAPTIVE - Bend the rules! You can learn the value of time management, retailing and the art of successful communication.
  • CREATIVE - Break the rules! Explore your vision with advanced hairdressing and chemical work, preparing you for your future career.

Our full-time Cosmetology program starts monthly, with a day schedule that is 35 hours per week for 11 months. The part-time evening schedule requires 23 hours per week over 16 months. Evening classes begin every other month.
