Our Story

We offer classes in cosmetology, esthetics, and nails. We are licensed by Tennessee State Board of Cosmetology in Nashville, TN. West TN College of Cosmetology was established in 2019. Our school teaches students the new trends as well as State Board approved classes that will help students pass the PSI testing where they receive professional license. We care for each student and prepare them for a bright career and a unique journey in the beauty profession. 

Our History

Darleen Kitchen (owner) has served as a licensed instructor for the last five years. She has taught and trained a great number of students who have been successful in state board testing as well as seeking employment. In addition, she has owned her own salon in Jackson, TN for the past ten years, Darleen's Hair Studio. In 2019, her love for teaching students and watching them develop into successful beauty professionals inspired her to open her own cosmetology school. Darleen obtains a degree through the University of Memphis where she graduated with a B.A. in Education. She has been a licensed Cosmetologist for the past 25 years and enjoys teaching others her skills and knowledge of hair, nails, and skin care.
