Sally’s beauty supply will pay $1,100 for the tuition of its own students, according to a statement from the company.
The company will pay the tuition for its own graduates, said Jill Spence, president of Sally’s.
“The company has an abundance of talent in this field, so it is important to us that we give our students the education they deserve,” Spence said.
Sally’s has about 1,400 employees, according the company website.
The move is part of a larger trend in which beauty supply companies are offering their own private education for their employees.
Last year, Target announced that its employees could get private education in the U.S. and Canada.
In May, the National Hockey League’s Philadelphia 76ers announced it would offer its own private school for players to train.
The Philadelphia school, which is owned by the city’s largest developer, will offer students six-month boot camps, as well as summer and spring courses.
“Our commitment is to make education available to the most qualified and best qualified individuals in the country,” Spences said.
“We are pleased that the City of Philadelphia will be joining our family in offering an affordable and high-quality private school to our employees.”
The company is expected to start enrolling its employees in July.
The announcement comes just weeks after the company announced plans to hire its own employees.
The Associated Press first reported on the school’s plans.
