New England Hair Academy began in 1976 as the New Style Barber School, the only barber school located north of Boston. The academy moved to our new location in Malden in 1987 and changed its name to New England Hair Academy to better reflect the diverse programs we offer. Today the academy is licensed and registered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Board of Registration of Barbers and Massachusetts Board of Registration of Cosmetologists and is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges.
We are proud to be the only school in the Boston area to offer cosmetology, barbering and manicuring all at one convenient location. Our objective is to prepare men and women 16 years old or older, who have limited or no experience, with the knowledge and skills for barbering, cosmetology and manicuring positions in the hair and beauty industry.
New England Hair Academy’s mission is to provide the most distinctive quality educational services and to prepare graduates with the necessary skills to occupy entry-level positions in the hair and beauty industry. We continuously study and evaluate student outcomes and institutional goal achievement and use these to improve our efforts for our students, staff, employers and the community.
