At Form Academy, professionals from the salon, spa, and cosmetology industries train the next wave of stylists and aestheticians. Each student receives supervised, hands-on training in services such as balayage, razor cuts, facials, and gel mani-pedis. Those interested in natural products can also take classes on holistic beauty. Form Academy rewards guests who visit its educational salon with rates up to 75% lower and high-fives up to 75% more frequent than they'll find at other area studios. Located in Echo Park, the academy's 10,000-square-foot converted 1940s warehouse is also available to rent as an event space or paper-airplane testing facility.
