Guy's Academy- Hair, Skin And Nails:
Guy’s Beauty School was founded January 1, 1954, on Youree Drive, by Guy M. Dorman, as a post graduate school for the sole purpose of further training licensed beauticians for employment in Guy’s Beauty Salon. Talented beginner students were first accepted February 7, 1955. Hershel Ferguson bought the school in January 1982. On July 1, 1982, Mr. Ferguson and Claude Burch formed a partnership and changed the name to GUY’S SHREVEPORT ACADEMY OF COSMETOLOGY.
In November 1987 the school was accredited by NACCAS and in February 1988 began Title IV funding with the United States Department of Education. In 1996 we expanded our facility and programs to include a 900 hour program in skin care. The Esthetics program was granted accreditation in 1997. The Advanced Student Designers and Day Spa Training Center opened in 1997 and provided a salon-type environment in which Advanced Students sharpen their skills.
In June 2000 Guy’s Shreveport Academy of Cosmetology expanded the facilities to include a chemical processing lab, large classroom and retail center. We expanded to include a Nail Center in August 2001.
Throughout the past twenty years, Guy’s Shreveport Academy of Cosmetology has continued to maintain and expand its reputation locally and in the surrounding communities. Guy’s Shreveport Academy of Cosmetology, Inc. purchased the partnership on September 1, 2000. Following the death of Mr. Ferguson in January 2001, Mr. Burch purchased his stock and became sole stockholder.
On March 26, 2003, a fire destroyed the Youree Drive location. Students missed only nine days of class, as we relocated in a temporary building in Shreve City on the 8th of April. Construction on the new building began in July 2003. On December 1, 2003, the new state of the art cosmetology school, known as, Guy’s Academy-Hair, Skin & Nails, opened at 1141 Shreveport Barksdale Highway in a 10,260 square foot facility.
