Cutting Edge

The Cutting Edge Style Academy is the Valley’s premiere cosmetology school for high school students. In our unique school, students complete their high school courses while simultaneously training in the 1600 hour Cosmetology Certificate Program. The Cutting Edge Style Academy opened its doors in July 2007 and since then has served over 500 West Valley teens in state-of-the-art cosmetology career training. 

Cutting Edge Style Academy is a partnership between Maricopa Skill Center and West-MEC. Cutting Edge is proud to also partner with valley salons and spas to enhance the student experience and provide job opportunities for our graduates.
