With 34 years of training and education behind it, The French Beauty Academy is ageing like a fine French wine.

Just one year into their original Edward Street occupancy, student intake numbers outgrew the space and the demand for more classrooms and education was on the horizon. Now, housed on the 12th floor of Adelaide Street in the central business district of Brisbane, you’ll find luxe fit outs, a bustling client reception and budding beauty therapists practicing and perfecting their craft.

With blush pink and gold accents, padded velvet chairs, crystal bookends and an inbuilt Pinterest-worthy student kitchen, it hardly feels like you’re entering into a school of weekly assignments and international examinations when you enter into the doors of The French Beauty Academy.

Not just another beauty school, The French, as the students refer to it as, equips therapists with both theoretical and practical skills allowing competency via their model training days, but also soft skills such as presentation, communication and articulation through their fully serviced student salon.

Combining the international class learning space with MAC cosmetic make up application and inspirational career lectures from industry leaders, The French therapists are equipped to enter into the trade with career clarity and confidence to perform treatments of the highest level.

Beauty Therapists wanting to bridge the gap between therapy and entrepreneurship can easily do so with an upgrade into the Diploma of Screen Media. Here students advance their learnings via business building tools such as business planning, social media management and financial forecasting.

If you’re a business seeking high end beauty therapists to service your clients, you’re in luck! The French Beauty Academy hosts a partner program where you can opt in to take on student placement which encourages growth into further employment.

The French Beauty Academy operates in both Brisbane and the Gold Coast and intakes students twice a year at the beginning and half way through. Should you wish to study at The French or become a partner of the placement program, contact them at
