A Little Spa opened its doors in 2007 as a privately owned Day Spa that provided facials, body waxing, eyebrow threading and nail services to its clients. Since then, A Little Spa has transformed into A Little Spa Institute, a top ranked, Post Graduate Training School for ambitious beauty professionals. With talented instructors in each classroom, we deliver a wealth of knowledge in every subject we teach. Our students can be found working in a variety of environments including the Aveda Salons, plastic surgeons offices, brow bars, and independently owned spas and salons. Many of our students have embarked on their own business ventures by opening their own spas and salons after graduation.

A Little Spa Institute has partnered with several organizations to enhance the learning experience for all of its students. These organizations include:
