AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF COSMETOLOGY SCHOOLS
Founded in 1924, AACS is a national, non-profit association open to all privately owned schools of cosmetology arts & sciences. Their membership in comprised of cosmetology, skin, nail, barbering and massage schools.
AACS specializes in updating members with information about new teaching methods, current industry events and Washington, DC updates. We do this through a series of seminars, conferences and conventions held throughout the year. Most of all, AACS members act as a family, often helping each other with addressing problems facing beauty education. This “networking” is often listed as the most important benefit to membership.
For those schools that participate in Title IV funding, AACS lobbies Congress and the Department of Education aggressively to protect the interests of private career schools. AACS is your representative in Washington, DC.

NACCAS is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education(link is external) as a national agency for the institutional accreditation of postsecondary schools and departments of cosmetology arts and sciences, including specialized schools.
