When Lebanon native Christopher Elliott went to work for his in-laws in Jefferson City and Moberly as the admissions director of Merrill University, a cosmetology school they operated, he never dreamed he would one day be the owner and director of his own such school.
In 2011, Elliott moved back to the area after 18 years away and purchased Lebanon College of Cosmetology. Today, he and his team guide students through three different educational cosmetology programs at the school that is accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Science, which is nationally recognized by the US Department of Education. The three programs include a cosmetology program of 1500 hours, a manicuring program of 400 hours and an instructor training program of 600 hours available to those who already have a valid license from the Cosmetology and Barbering Board.
