About Our Advanced Academy

Steeped in history and rich in tradition, the Rizzieri family has provided future hairdressers and skincare students with excellence in education since 1928. Visionary Franco Cipriotti saw the future of ladies hairdressing and turned his barbering school into a Beauty Culture School, thus opening the first cosmetology school in the State of New Jersey. Today that school is known as the Rizzieri Aveda School and the Rizzieri family’s dedication to the industry continues.
In 2008, Rizzieri offered it first advanced class…the Masters Program.  The success of this program has led to the development of additional advanced haircutting, coloring and styling classes, a makeup program, barbering workshops and textured hair styling classes, and the Rizzieri Advanced Academy was born.
