Florida Association of Cosmetology and Technical Schools

Empowering Florida’s Beauty and Wellness Education and Industry

FACTS, the Florida Association of Cosmetology and Technical Schools, unites cosmetology and technical schools offering beauty and wellness-related programs, along with industry associates dedicated to supporting these institutions. Together, FACTS members wield a formidable influence in Tallahassee, safeguarding the interests of schools, educators, students, graduates, and the broader beauty and wellness industry. Our mission includes promoting elevated educational standards and fostering sound business practices by facilitating networking opportunities, delivering continuing education, providing the latest industry news, and offering guidance on regulatory changes.


FACTS emerged in early 2011 as a response to the potential deregulation of various beauty and wellness-related fields, including hair braiding, body wrapping, nail technology, and barbering licensing. Recognizing the profound impact this could have on beauty and wellness school programs and the industry as a whole, eight school owners and one industry representative came together to establish FACTS.
