About Academy

Welcome to Your Future

“Excellence in Education, One Student at a Time.”

Our private academy offers our students the ability to learn in a professional salon school atmosphere with superior training from our qualified experienced instructors. Tuana European Beauty Academy is owned by top industry stylist Kazim Tercan and his wife, Mercan Tercan.

Kazim was trained in Europe by top European stylists and is an award-winning salon owner of Tuana Hair Design and a runway stylist known for his cutting edge styles and educational classes. He is a certified master hair colorist as well as a master hairstylist. He brings his extensive European education and talent to the Tuana European Beauty Academy. Our academy is dedicated to educating quality cosmetologists, hairstylists, manicurists, and estheticians—graduates who will meet the present and future demands of the beauty industry. Our small class sizes guarantee you one-on-one attention, which in turn will allow you to learn at your own pace and time. We offer a world-renowned education that is affordable, and as a European Creative School, we give you 25 years of experience in the beauty and fashion industries.

Mercan graduated from physics from the Ege University of Turkey and earned a master's degree in computer information systems at the College of Business at CSU. While she was working as a teaching assistant and tutor at CSU, she gained experience making learning accessible and engaging for students, contributed to their success, and had a great time throughout it all. She always enjoyed working with students and instructors to build this amazing profession. In her spare time, you can find her hiking, cooking, doing yoga, or reading.

Our goal is to provide each student with a specialized, national, and international education that prepares them for a career in cosmetology or stand-alone programs for hairstyling, esthetics, and nail technology by ensuring a strong foundation in accordance with the Colorado State Board of Cosmetology criteria. Our focus is to educate our students in the highest standards of business, ethics, and techniques that will set them apart from other cosmetology graduates.

Tuana European Beauty Academy is a private occupational school licensed with the Division of Private Occupational Schools.
