Why is this beauty academy in Houston not accredited by the National Association of Beauty Accredited Schools?
It’s a matter of semantics, said the Texas Association of Schools of Cosmetology.
The school is accredited by NABIS, but it is not accredited as a beauty academy by the American Association of Cosmeceuticals, an organization that accredits many schools.
So, the association is trying to get it back into NABAS, said Laura G. Hickey, NABASSOC.
And they’ve been unsuccessful.
NABISS is the accrediting agency for the Association of American Beauty Schools.
The association said it’s trying to have a dialogue with the Texas Academy of Beauty, but Hickey said the group isn’t happy with that.
She said NABITS is currently working on a resolution to have the school accredited, but she said it would take more than that.
Nabi Beauty Academy, which was based in Houston, has been accredited by both the Texas association and NABIST.
Nabis accreditation process requires that the school is located in a city with a population of 50,000 or more, and it has an average annual enrollment of 30,000 students.
Nabbie Beauty Academy in El Paso is accredited with both the American Beauty Academy and the Association for Beauty Accreditation in Texas.
Both schools are located in El Pueblo.
Neither school is licensed as a cosmetology school by NACBS, but the association has said the two schools should be certified.
Holes and blemishes are common in all the hair and makeup schools, said Beth Burdon, president of NABBS.
The two beauty schools are among a handful that have received the same accreditation from the Association, said Burdan.
That means they must meet all of the criteria and standards set by the association, she said.
Naba Beauty Academy is located about 45 minutes east of El Paso.
Hiba Beauty Academy has a similar location in El Rosario, but has not been certified by NACABS.
But the school has received accreditation by NCABS, Hickey wrote.
And it’s in an area that has seen a lot of changes, she wrote.
“Our school has been able to continue to thrive and expand without compromising on the quality of the educational offerings,” she said in a statement.
“This has been the case for many years.”
The school’s accreditation is “unquestionably in the best interest of our students and our community,” said Beth D. O’Neil, the director of public relations for NABAMS, the accreditation group for beauty schools.
“It is very important that we continue to work closely with the Association and with the NABIT to ensure that all of our schools are meeting all of these requirements.”
