Glen Dow Academy in Spokane, WA was formed in 1969 to provide future beauty industry professionals with the education and skills that they will need to become talented, confident professionals. We also provide a range of fantastic beauty services to the public, at a much lower cost than other salons in the area. All of our services are performed by students, under supervision of their instructor. We strive to develop and maintain a learning and working environment where creativity and professional growth are emphasized and nurtured.

We have been nationally accredited by the National Accreditation Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences (NACCAS) since 1970, allowing our students to receive financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, and student loans – including Parent PLUS student loans with rates as low as 5.8%!
