About the Academy


Who We Are
The European Academy of Cosmetology & Hairdressing, LLC.,The Teach Hairdressing Academy, brings world-class education and training to the Connecticut shoreline. Located in a state-of-the-art facility, and staffed by masters in their field, TEACH offers a comprehensive, progressive education in the basics of hairdressing and cosmetology, with additional training in salon management.


Why We’re Here
Teach Hairdressing Academy students will benefit from the substantial experience and expertise of academy founders Christopher J. Rollins, owner of the popular and successful Christopher’s Salon & Day Spa in Guilford, and Michael Criscuolo, Christopher’s Salon Director. They created the Academy to provide students with an alternative to the existing, limited educational opportunities in Connecticut. More important, they hope to pass along the keys to their own success – knowledge, a mastery of the basics and a desire to stay ahead of the competition with new skills and training in the latest styles, products and services.


What You’ll Learn
The course of study includes 1,500 of classroom education and hands-on-training. Classes, taken either full or part-time, prepare students to apply for a Connecticut license in Hairdressing, Cosmetology and Barbering. The first 200, classroom-based hours, focus on the theoretical aspects of all content areas. The remaining hours are devoted to practical experience - first with mannequins and then clients.

While learning, students have access to the highest quality equipment, products, learning tools and education. In addition to Rollins and Criscuolo, other academy instructors provide a wealth of experience and training – with much of it coming from L’OREAL, Goldwell and TIGI, top companies known worldwide for their products, advanced expertise and educational programs.

While learning the basics and latest trends from these master instructors, students also receive a comprehensive education into the real world of the salon. TEACH also will provide students with tips and support for their job search.
