Welcome to the Alexander Paul Institute of Hair Design


Backed by over 35 years of experience, Alexander Paul Institute of Hair Design is an elite learning institution that fosters creativity and achievement to produce stylists that graduate to become top performers in the hair industry.  With a very low student-to-teacher ratio, Alexander Paul Institute provides direct and personalized education for each and every student.

Alexander Paul Institute is an innovative private school that specializes exclusively in cosmetology.  Students can finish the program in as little as 10-11 months.  The environment of the school exposes students to real salon life and empowers students to become successful salon professionals.

Alexander Paul Institute is just a short walk from Downtown Greenville and practically across the street from East Carolina University’s Campus.

2013 ECU AIMO Fashion Show – Alexander Paul Institute Students did hair & makeup for around 130 models featured in the show!
