Our History

Michelle Oliver opened the East Texas Cosmetology College on September 6th, 2016 with her husband, Zachary Oliver. When the school first opened, the only program offered was the cosmetology program, but have since established esthetics, manicure, eyelash extension, and instructor programs. The East Texas Cosmetology College underwent a name change in 2018 to the East Texas Cosmetology College that was more encompassing of the growing programs offered. Because the college is new, its facilities and materials are also new and are geared towards a more modern approach of beauty and esthetics.
