Peter Michael Franelli, or Xenon as he was commonly called, is considered by many to be one of the top hairdressers of all time. Peel’s Salon Services brought Xenon into their business and the Xenon Academy was founded in Omaha, Nebraska. The school offers cosmetology courses, hair styling, cosmetic classes, nail styling, and cosmetologist instructor courses. Xenon passed away at the age of 57 from cancer, but the school continues in his name.
Today, Xenon Academy has 5 locations in Nebraska and Colorado. The school is fully accredited and is in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. Xenon Academy has had more than 5,000 graduates due in part to their Pivot Point Cirrucilum.
The school also offers a full service beauty/nail salon and day spa, so that graduates can gain valuable experience.
