Michelle Cobb, Class of 2001, Owner - "Blue Salon & Spa (Carney's Point, NJ)"
My thoughts on being a PB student are that the staff was welcoming, professional and created a family atmosphere. They pushed hard for the students to do well. I am still impressed how the PB offices stay in contact with the students after graduation. The teachers point students in the direction for a great career.

PB instilled in me the desire to further my education when I got out of school. My advice to future cosmetologists is you have to want it, you have to be really, really hungry for the knowledge.
David Fedora, Class of 2010, "The Barber Shop by David"
My advice for anyone thinking about entering the beauty profession is to GO FOR IT! I have such great memories of PB and my classmates. We still get together to grab lunch with each other and network. One of the best things was graduating and applying for a job. I walked in and said I was a PB grad and I got the job right then and there."

Al Dicicco - Owner, Revelations Salon, Class of 2004
Every so often an organization goes through change. Over the past year we have had three new additions to our salon family, all of them PB graduates or students. As a matter of fact, nine of eleven stylists on our staff have graduated from PB. We are happy to say that we look forward to PB students playing a key role in our future.
Jillian Fischetti, Make-Up Artist, Class of 2010
I always just had jobs, dead end jobs that just paid the bills, until I came to PB. In the summer of 2009, I made the decision to change my life and pursue a career instead of a job. I gave myself a secure future. I made a promise to myself that I would never be left without work again and that being laid off and unemployed would no longer be an option.
PB Cosmetology Education Centre was founded in 1960 by the husband and wife team of Peg and Bob (PB) Hogan. It flourished as a small school called PB Method of Hair Design, teaching cosmetology and nails for over 25 years. Today, the school is in its third generation under the direction of Peg and Bob’s granddaughter, Colleen Hogan.
