Our History

Black Hills Beauty College was started in Rapid City, SD in 1978 by Patrick Miller, a well-known hairstylist and salon owner. Mr. Miller dedicated himself to providing the best training possible for those pursuing a career in Cosmetology.

When Mr. Miller retired in 1990, Black Hills Beauty College was purchased by Tom and Joy Poloncic. Tom, a construction company owner and Joy, an employee of Black Hills Beauty College since 1984, have dedicated themselves to continuing the achievement and character set forth by Mr. Miller.

Because of the continued success and high demand of graduates from Black Hills Beauty College, the cosmetology school has since expanded by adding three additional programs for you to chose from including: Esthetics, Nail Technotogy and Massage Theropy.
