Peels Salon Services had provided quality products and equipment to beauty professionals for 75 years. Our founder, Xenon, was an internationally acclaimed guest artist and leading creator of industry techniques who had a desire to educate the next generation of stylists. When these two industry leaders formed a partnership, it led to the founding of Xenon International Academy.

For over 30 years, our team has made sure to teach the next generation of beauty professionals using salon-quality tools and techniques. We strive to help prepare our students to become successful professionals. Our goal is to give them the skills necessary to thrive in a wide range of careers in the beauty industry.

With campuses in Omaha and Grand Island, we offer programs in:

  • Cosmetology
  • Esthetics
  • Barbering

Barbering is not offered at our Grand Island location at this time. Current students should contact the Director’s Office for assistance and students in the enrollment process should contact admissions for further information.

Xenon Academy’s commitment to excellence can be experienced across all our programs. Our commitment begins with our cutting-edge Pivot Point® Curriculum. For more than 50 years, Pivot Point® has helped educators and professionals from around the world to train tomorrow’s superstars. As a Pivot Point Legacy Partner, Xenon Academy’s Pivot Point® Curriculum sets the standard for educational excellence. We build your basic skills while also helping you master the latest techniques.

It has honestly been Great being a part of Xenon Academy. I transferred from another cosmetology school half way through my program because I found that Xenon was more about teaching ethics and professionalism not just as a school but as a business. I have learned so much more than I ever imagined being here from all of the educators and having multiple programs to consider. I want to thank all the educators for teaching and coaching me with all of their professional knowledge in this industry. I will be very successful now that I am a Xenon Graduate. I highly recommend Xenon Academy in Grand Island Nebraska and Omaha.
