Here at the Academy of Beauty Professionals, our mission is to help you succeed. We will always be 100% committed to helping you grow as a beauty professional and as a person. Over the years, Founder and Best Practices Coach John Martin has come up with 10 statements which form the framework of our philosophy. He calls them “The Axioms.” Our 10 Axioms serve as a guide to success, if you will. These principles are internalized by our instructors and students alike, and we try to live by them while we are teaching, learning, and growing together at the school. They have evolved over time, but stayed true to their purpose all the while. Below, read about each unique Axiom and the purpose it serves us.
