A nine-year-old beauty school owned by a prominent District hair designer closed abruptly last week, leaving some of its more than 100 students unsure what will happen to their tuition and the hours they invested in their futures.


Some students said they were not told the school was closing. Nolan said she met with students twice -- once July 2 to tell them that they could no longer receive federal financial aid because the school had lost its accreditation, and again July 3 to announce that another local school had agreed to accept Scanners students.


"I tried and did everything I could possibly do" to save the school, said Nolan, who said she notified the students of the school's closing as soon as she knew it was inevitable. Nolan said some students may have missed the meetings because of the long holiday weekend.


There are 14 beauty schools licensed in Washington, according to a spokeswoman at the city's Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. Some students said they chose Scanners because of Nolan's reputation.


Debra Pate, 20, moved from New Jersey to attend Scanners, choosing it over other beauty schools in the Washington area after comparing courses and costs. "I figured there was a good chance of job placement after graduation because she's well known and she has two salons," said Pate, who has dreamed of being a cosmetologist since she was 10. She said she put "$800 down and was to make a payment of $200 this month" on her tuition.


After receiving complaints from students this week, the D.C. Education Licensure Commission, which oversees trade schools, wrote Nolan to ask for a "closeout plan" that would include arrangements for students to continue their education at a comparable school and to receive refunds for services not provided, commission Chairman Steven J. Diner said.


Some students, such as Herbert, complained that they saw no evidence of the grants that counselors told them the schools had received, so the students could not dispute the balance they were told they owed. For instance, Herbert said he was told that the school "had received a $3,600 Pell grant for me and that I owed the balance of $1,000."


Shon Rylee, who enrolled in Scanners in February, said he thought his expenses were being covered by grants until he was informed in the spring that he would have to pay the tuition. No one at the school could explain why he had not received aid, he said.


Rylee said he had heard students speculating that the school was in trouble. "I was going to transfer my hours to another school but staff members talked me out of it. I came back . . . to closed doors."


The school's accreditation problems began in late 1990 after a team from the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences found "violations of the standards of criteria a school must meet," said Mary Bird, a commission spokeswoman. The team recommended the school's accreditation be withdrawn, and Scanners appealed. After a long review procedure, accreditation was withdrawn last month, Bird said.


Nolan said she kept the school open as long as possible. "Students left without paying loans back," she said. "My financial adviser said the money coming in could hold me over for a while. I had appealed the lost accreditation, and there was no reason to doubt it would go great."


Pate, a full-time student who began in April, said she attended the meeting at which Nolan told the students that Image School of Hair Designers, operated by a beauty products company called Dudley's, had agreed to accept the Scanners students and that the students would be notified when plans were finalized.

The Washington State Department of Licensing requires cosmetology, barbering, esthetics, and/or manicuring schools to post a surety bond to legally operate within the state. The required amount of bond coverage must be equal to 10% of the annual gross tuition collected by the school and be no less than $10,000 and no more than $50,000.


Washington cosmetology, barbering, esthetics, and/or manicuring schools are put in place to ensure that principals (schools) comply with all provisions of Chapter 18.16 of the Revised Code of Washington and with all rules and regulations adopted by the Director of the Department of Licensing. Specifically, the bond guarantees that schools will uphold all contracts with students/tuition payers and reimburse students for already-paid tuition and other fees that are not delivered upon if the school ceases to operate or defaults on contracts for any reason.


This surety bond does not cover community colleges and vocational schools. Applicants must know whether the school is a sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation, and must enter the business type in the description field of the bond form.

Sara Spencer Washington was born in Beckley, West Virginia on June 6, 1889 to Joshua and Ellen Douglass Phillips.[1] As a girl, she attended public schools in the Beckley area before going to the Lincoln Preparatory School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Norfolk Mission College in Norfolk, Virginia. Before starting her beauty industry, Washington studied advanced chemistry at Columbia University.[2][3]


In 1905, Washington began her career as a dressmaker, a profession she continued until 1913. That year, she opened her own small hairdresser shop in Atlantic City, New Jersey, despite the fact that her parents wanted her to become a school teacher.[4][2]


In 1919, Washington founded the Apex News and Hair Company in Atlantic City, New Jersey and began her career as a cosmetics entrepreneur.[5] She experimented with a variety of cosmetic products, targeting the market of African American women. While Washington started with a one-room beauty shop, she was able to grow her business into an empire by working in her beauty salon during the day and canvassing for her cosmetic products at night.[6]


The Apex Beauty Products Company encompassed a variety of products, from pressing oils, hot combs, and pomades for hair to perfumes, beauty creams, and lipsticks. Washington recognized the value in the beauty industry and considered it one of the best professions to enter. She is known for saying, "As long as there are women in the world, there will be beauty establishments."[6]


Indeed, the demand that Washington recognized surfaced in the United States. The Apex empire included eleven different beauty schools in the United States, with schools in foreign countries that specialized in teaching with her products. It is estimated that Washington's company employed nearly five hundred people in her stores across the nation, in addition to the estimated forty-five thousand sales agents who canvassed Apex beauty products as Washington had in her early days.[6]


While Washington did not pioneer the beauty industry, she emerged into the beauty market after the world had suffered from World War I and the Great Depression. She has been celebrated for coining the slogan, "Now is the time to plan your future by learning a depression-proof business." While Washington's company started as a one-room beauty shop, it is estimated to have been worth nearly half-a-million dollars by the mid-1940s.[6] 041b061a72
