Empire Beauty Schools was founded in 1964 by Norman Langlois. During his prosperous career, Norman earned the nickname “The King of Beauty” for his ability to give clients their ideal look and grow professionals and businesses to success. Norman dedicated his life to fostering professionals with a genuine desire for them to thrive in their careers. Since our founding, Norman’s vision for the beauty industry has grown into three campuses that the next generation of beauty professionals attend yearly.
Empire Beauty Schools is owned and operated by Norman’s children, John Langlois, and Donna Demers. Their passion and expertise within the beauty industry began when they were just kids! Growing up, they carefully watched and learned from their father, taking what they learned into their various professional careers. John and Donna have spent their careers managing and operating several top salons and beauty centers throughout the area. They are proud that Empire Beauty Schools is family owned and operated, and they look forward to continuing its rich legacy for future generations.
