Welcome to the World of Hair Design

EQ School of Hair Design is different from other cosmetology schools in the area. Our school has a highly respected history, having operated schools in the area for more than 50 years. And we compete on a national level, too. Our graduates find placements in salons and allied fields from coast-to-coast.

We believe in smaller class sizes to allow our students more one-on-one time with instructors. Our skilled instructors possess years of teaching experience and are dedicated to keeping up with current instructional methods. We also regularly feature guest artists and educators, adding to the curriculum and heightening the student experience.

What People Say About Us

Where do I even begin? I cannot thank the EQ School of Hair Design staff and students enough for their level of professionalism during Fashion Week! The talent is above and beyond what you could even expect. I am so thrilled to partner with such an amazing group of students and alumni that are so eager to see their work on the runway. Hugs to everyone that helped the Ruffled Runway crew (kid & adult models) look stunning this week! Special thank you to coordinator Margi Clark and lead stylist Ellie Nicole Jensen for being amazing! And to the Mead’s for supporting local designers achieve big goals!

Ruffled Runway Designer

When I started at EQ School of Hair Design I didn’t have a lot of confidence. By the time I graduated I found the confidence and creativity inside myself. I graduated in 2007 and am proud to say I’ve been doing hair at Hair Masters ever since. I wasn’t great at color when I started, but I’ve really applied myself and lately all I do is color. I thank the staff and teachers who have helped me grow and become who I am today. I found my way in life because they helped me. Thank you soooo much.

EQ School of Hair Design is an awesome school that provides amazing opportunities to it’s students! I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with the wonderful staff! I have formed incredible “one of a kind bonds” with several staff members. I have been involved in Omaha Fashion Week and several other “extra curricular” activities/events/fashion shows/pageants etc. If you are interested in becoming part of a great industry, this is the place to start! You have a chance to become part of a wonderful family.


Sarah Gilbert

When I was looking for a cosmetology school, I toured the biggest ones in the metro area. I chose EQ School of Hair Design because I felt comfortable and at home from the first time I walked in. Everyone was very friendly and it was a great atmosphere. My experience is one I will always remember. The instructors are always willing to help and very easy to approach. The bonds I made with the teachers and my fellow students I will carry with me for the rest of my life.


Rebecca Schaefer

EQ School of Hair Design has given me the opportunity to fulfill my dream of becoming a great cosmetologist. As a mother of three, I never thought I would be able to find a school that would work with my family’s schedule until I found EQ School of Hair Design. From the moment I walked in the door, I knew this was the place for me. I would not be where I am today if it were not for the wonderful, caring, well educated staff. The instructors are great with the students and clients, the classes are small so you never feel ignored or forgotten. At EQ, you’re not just a number to them, you’re a rising star to the industry. I would recommend this school to anyone ready to live their dream!  “Do what you love and love what you do.”


Sam Hanson

Having been a client for over 30 years, I have always found the service to be extra ordinary – over the top! The students and staff go out of their way to make sure your hair and beauty needs are addressed, keeping in mind the health of your hair, nails and skin. Thank you for such superior service. I look forward to many more years of care.


Monica Sciortino

I have been going to EQ since 2003 for haircuts and color services. My kids and my parents now also go to EQ, too. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We like EQ because of the flexible appointment scheduling. I like the later hours on Wednesday nights, so that I can go after work if needed. The prices are also very reasonable. The instructors work with the students to make sure you are getting great services. EQ is also involved in the community by supporting my kids’ school fundraisers with donations.
