Why Our School

Since 1985, Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy (formerly Razzle Dazzle College) has successfully educated professionals for the beauty industry. Our skilled Instructors, with many years of personal industry experience, passionately guide all of our future professionals through hands-on and theoretical training, while infusing their love of creativity into every client experience. All guest services at Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy are performed by supervised students. The college was founded in 1985 by Kathy Zimbelman who set out to help others achieve their dream of becoming Cosmetologists. She saw a need for a school that provided good foundational training in the art of cosmetology. This led her to open the school and through the years she’s done more than train students for a career, she’s given them goals and hope for a brighter future.

Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy features a beautiful up-to-date environment where students are encouraged to act as though they were already working as a professional. Business building techniques are incorporated into the curriculum to ensure that all of our graduates begin their careers with a foundation of knowledge to build on for success. An education at Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy is an engaging, creative and fulfilling learning experience!


Our mission is to provide students with the educational tools and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen field. We provide a positive learning environment that exceeds expectations. Nicholas Jay Salon & Spa Academy exists to empower future professionals through post secondary education.
