About Us

The Academy’s training programs include advanced, creative, and comprehensive Barbering, Cosmetology, Esthetics & Nail Technology curricula. Our carefully designed approach has quickly garnered the support and commendation of our NorCal community.  Located in the heart of Stockton, CA inside the Historical Waterfront Warehouse, Inspire Academy’s state-of-the-art, boutique programs foster an intimate and personalized program that puts the attention on you.  We train students to be eligible to sit for the state board licensing exam and work to instill an entrepreneurial spirit of professionalism in each student.



Our Cosmetology course takes a modern, dynamic, and personalized approach to teach you the latest theory and practical techniques in hair cutting, color, texture, fashion-related hairstyling, skin and nails. We offer hands-on training giving students the foundation to build a successful career and master the art and craft of a cosmetologist – all under the guidance of our expert staff and professional guest artists.  


During the middle ages barbers did more than cut hair and shave, they played the role of doctors. Ancient tribes turned to barbers for spiritual guidance. Historically, the art of barbering is respected. Barbering has evolved into a renaissance. Being a barber makes you an artisan of a growing trade. You can be creative not corporate. Going beyond clipper cuts and fading, we inspire classic and creative trends and techniques, like military-inspired styles, scissor over comb, razored layers, freehand dry cutting, square and lean shapes, and the creation of texture and taper. *use the barber picture I provided.


Esthetics is the fastest growing segment of the beauty industry. The 600 hours of inspirational, career-shaping study includes curriculum designed to take a holistic approach with modern trends and techniques in skin care and provides a comprehensive fundamental foundation for estheticians. Embark on your journey to revealing radiant skin!


Successful nail technicians are creative with an artistic sense of design. The nail industry continues to grow with new breakthroughs in product technologies, application techniques and business strategy. While some specialize in relaxing spa sensation manicures and pedicures, others lead the industry with the latest trends and innovative ideas.  This 400 hour course goes beyond the basics to prepare artists for their career in the nail industry.
