Leon’s Style Salons celebrated their 70th anniversary in 2015. From its humble beginnings as a six-chair beauty salon on Tate Street in 1945 to today’s six salons and renowned school, Leon’s has always made its presence know as a superior business and community institution.
The beauty school was founded in 1963 by the late Leon Oldham. It was located on that same Tate Street block, with flair as it was called “Maison de Paris.” Leon’s Beauty School is presently operated by Mr. Leon’s daughter, Parker Washburn. It is a private co-educational institution offering a cosmetology program, an esthetics program and training courses for cosmetology and esthetics teachers.
One of the advantages or Leon’s Beauty School’s longevity in the Triad area is a significant client base. Having a busy clinic allows us to keep tuition costs low while giving students ample opportunities to practice their skills.
Thousands of students have attended the school and thousands more have visited for services in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Mission and Objective
Leon’s Beauty School’s Mission is to provide post secondary education to our students in marketable Cosmetic Arts and Sciences skills to enable graduates to pass the state license exam in order to be eligible for entry level employment.
