I M Beauty School renovated and moved to a new place.

I M Beauty School, which opened in 2018, has expanded. I M Beauty School renovated and refurbished 5,000 sq. ft., located in a two-story building inside Glenview Central Market Shopping Mall. According to Principal Isabella Lee, a beauty school designed by an expert was completed within a four-month construction period which transformed a large empty space. The newly renovated beauty school includes a main lecture room, an aesthetic practice room, a hair practice room, a Mani/Pedi practice area, a service room and a spacious school-affiliated comprehensive beauty clinic with the latest facilities and instruments.

Since its opening in September 2018, I M Beauty School has become a leading beauty school in the Midwest, producing about 15 graduates in 2019 and about 32 graduates in 2020. In particular, I M Beauty School was approved as the first beauty school run by a Korean-American. In July 2020, just two years after its opening, the school became eligible to issue I-20 to receive foreign students from the federal government and received FAFSA certification in November of 2023.

I M Beauty school is becoming more and more well-known and held in high regard. This is due in part to, as Principal Isabella Lee explains, “excellent faculty members and a powerful program.” In particular, the school boasts a 100% graduation rate, 87.5% of whom go on to pass their license test on their first attempt, as of 2020 NACCAS data.

Regarding the effects before the expansion, Principal Isabella said, “Now, students of other races can choose our school more freely to receive vocational training, and with the pandemic over, we will be able to open a new way for students and immigrants who want to use I-20 to acquire M-VISA.” She also explained, “With the clinic completed, which is comparable to any other place in the town, graduates can build their skills until they get settled, and they can provide services to real-world clients at any time.”


The expanded I M Beauty School is located on the second floor of the second building in the Jungbu Market Mall, and its address and contact information are as follows.
