Ogle School is a cosmetology school founded in 1973 by Shelton Ogle in Arlington, Texas. Ogle’s grandfather was a well-known barber in Dallas, Texas. Ogle originally had planned to become an architect, but after he discovered that there was a shortage of well-trained cosmetologists, he changed his career path. He opened his first salon when he was 21 and his first school two years later.
Ogle School is today one of the most successful beauty schools in Texas. Ogle, himself, has a weekly beauty show on PBS television. The company has 8 locations across Texas. Ogle School is accredited and has been an approved member of The Better Business Bureau since 2013. The school boasts an 85% placement rate after graduation.
The company was purchased in January of 2015 by NCK Capital, a Dallas, Texas, based private equity firm which specializes in family business buyouts.
