About the Institute of Cosmetology, Esthetics & Massage
ICE&M was started in 1984 with a lot of hope and enthusiasm, two instructors and six students. In 1988, the school was accredited by the National Accreditation Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences, NACCAS. In 1995, the increasing popularity of the school led ICE&M to relocate to a larger facility and its current location.
ICE&M had its breakthrough year in 1997 when it became the first CIDESCO International accredited school in the United States. With the CIDESCO accreditation, students are awarded the highest beauty therapy certification in the world. In 1999, ICE&M’s Director of Education requested all instructors become CIDESCO certified. Today, ICE&M’s faculty is made up of both CIDESCO International examiners and diploma holders teaching in the skin and body care department.
