At Elevate Salon Institute in Royal Oak, we want to help our students build confidence during their time with us, and the knowledge to use professional products can help them be successful after graduating. We have partnered with a number of brands for our students to use in school that can help them prepare for future work in salons and spas. Find out more about these brands, why we chose them, and see the difference professional products can make for beauty students.
Founded in 1909 by Eugène Schueller, L’Oréal Professionnel has long since been a pioneer in the beauty industry, consistently providing hair solutions for both professional and at-home use. L’Oréal Professionnel has also been a staple in the beauty and high fashion industries, having sponsored over 800 fashion shows worldwide. By sponsoring fashion shows, L’Oréal Professionnel gets first-hand knowledge of the latest trends and techniques, which can then be translated into their products and in turn, the education we provide to our students. By combining professional-grade products with environmentally sourced materials, we believe L’Oréal Professionnel will continue to shape the beauty industry, and we are proud to be partnered with such a respected brand.
When it comes to men’s hair and skincare, we trust one of the leading companies in men’s personal care. Since 1965 in Los Angeles, Baxter of California has been supplying quality, yet accessible hair, skin, and shaving essentials. In their own words, “premium doesn’t have to be pretentious.” These products are essential to our barbering program and assisting with our men’s facial care.
No matter the texture, no matter the goal, we’ve got you covered!
Started by Terri Gardner in 1991, Gardner saw a need for salon-quality products for textured hair. Her goal was to meet the needs of black stylists, salons, and consumers in the Chicago area.

Bioelements Natural Skincare has been, “consciously clean, mindful skin scientists,” since 1991. With an influx of skincare available that claims to be ‘clean,’ Bioelements sets the standard. Their skincare is free of sulfates, parabens, fragrances, dyes, and more, and they offer their ingredient list plainly on their website for consumers to browse. All formulas are clinically tested in a safe, responsible manner and are never tested on animals. Their results speak for themselves, which is why we trust Biolements with our students.
Circadia was founded in 2001 by the celebrated Dr. Pugliese, after spending thirty years as a product developer for other popular brands. Dr. Pugliese is well known for conducting the first clinical study on copper peptide, topical Vitamin E, and Beta Glucan, and his expertise set the foundation for Circadia’s professional skincare based on the body’s natural circadian rhythms. By defending the skin during the day from sun damage and revitalizing and repairing at night, Circadia can be the perfect balance for many!

In Vista, CA in 1979, the idea for CND was born in – not a salon – but a dentist’s office by Dr. Stuart Nordstrom. From that day, SolarNail™ Liquid was invented, the industry’s first-ever monomer formulation for greater nail strength and flexibility, and the first product to deliver natural, non-yellowing nail color. Throughout the years, CND continued to revolutionize the nail industry, leading up to the introduction of CND® SHELLAC® brand 14+ day nail color after nearly five years of development. CND works to expand the brand and education, and encourage inclusivity in the beauty industry.
