Our Mission

Leon's Beauty School's mission is to educate our students in marketable cosmetology arts and sciences skills to enable graduates to pass the state license exam in order to be eligible for entry level employment.


Leon's offers courses in cosmetology and esthetics. Financial aid is available for those students who qualify. The school also offers cosmetology, esthetic and manicuring teacher training. The manicuring course is not available at this time.


Leon's Beauty School was founded in 1963 by the late Leon Oldham.  The school was origionally opened on Tate Street in Greensboro under the name of Maison de Paris Beauty School. In 1974, it moved to expanded quarters on Walker Avenue, adjacent to The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Greensboro College. In 1977, it was renamed Leon's Beauty School in honor of its founder.

In 1981 Leon's moved  to West Lee Street and in 2007 into its current location on Coliseum Boulevard. Mrs. Leon Oldham served as President and Director of the school until her death in August 1994. Leon's Beauty School is presently operated by Mrs. Leon's daughter, Parker Washburn. It is a private co-educational institution which provides course work in cosmetology designed to prepare the graduate for opportunities such as : hairstylist, beauty salon manager, skin care specialist , make-up artist or manicurist. In addition to the basic cosmetology course, the school also offers a course in esthetics and a training course for cosmetology and esthetic teachers.

One of the advantages of the Leon's Beauty School's longevity in the Triad area is a significant client base. Having a busy clinic allows us to keep tuition cost low  while giving student ample opportunities to practice  their technical skills and customer service.
