About Champion

We offer education and style.

Champion Institute of Cosmetology has been in Palm Springs since September of 1988. Gisele Bessis, current owner, took over in May of 1994. Since September 2006, Gisele has moved the school upstairs from its prior location downstairs. The new school is a spacious 10,000sq feet, with state of the art equipment throughout the facility. Students have the opportunity to enjoy our new lunch and break rooms. Classrooms are comfortable and well equipped. The main cosmetology floor has a magnificent view of the San Jacinto Mountains. In addition the students will enjoy working in a real salon atmosphere.CHAMPION INSTITUTE OF COSMETOLOGY (CIC) is a private for-profit institution and is granted its approval from the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education pursuant to California Education Code Section 94915 http://www.bppe.ca.gov/.
