Education, Opportunity & Possibilities 


Meet Our Team

QBA Family


We are a family of educators who is passionate at sharing our crafts to those who thirst for knowledge in the beauty industry. We look to welcoming everyone here. 


Queen Beauty Academy was founded by 2 sisters that had a vision to provide quality education to students through their Beauty Supply business over the past 30 years. Laura and Sam have been in the beauty industry in which their family built, managed, and owned salons in PA, DE, NJ, and Puerto Rico since late 1980's. From there, they moved onto the Beauty Supply business where they collaborated with companies like OPI, Essie, Lechat, GiGi, Clean & Easy, Gelish, Satin Smooth to bring product knowledge and new innovative technique to their customers. It was through these classes that they realized there was a need in the industry for a school that would teach more than what is required to pass the state law exams.


In January 2014, along with Teka, Queen Beauty Academy was established. Queen Beauty Academy has given our ethnically diverse students an opportunity to get trained and test for the state exam license in other languages other than just English.  We have created a fun, unconventional environment that reflect the real world to helps students prepare and be ready to work right after graduation. Beyond the required skills in their trade, we also incorporated communications skills, real world salon training, and continue to help our postgraduates in continued education.  


Our passionate staffs has helped our students improve their study habits, comprehension, test-taking skills, and practical skills in all areas of Cosmetology, As a result, these students have gained more than fundamental knowledge, grown in self-esteem and have great confidence after graduation to start their career. 

 We are proud of our achievements collective as a school and are so happy to b
