Welcome To Urban Darling’s Exclusive Personal Styling Mentorship Program



Darling University is a unique, comprehensive personal styling training program.  The program unfolds over a two month period, during which you are paired one-on-one with an experienced Urban Darling stylist.  Your stylist (i.e. mentor) will teach a carefully thought-out series of interactive lessons, and be on call to answer any questions you might have.  Following seven intensive training sessions, you’ll be met with three exciting challenge sessions to test your knowledge of what’s been taught.  The entire program is available both virtually or in-person (where applicable).  The program is rife with numerous added benefits, such as a styling certificate and professional reference, granted upon successful completion.


 What you’ll get:

~ Personalized, one-on-one mentoring with an experienced Urban Darling stylist ~
~ Two months of comprehensive training and testing ~
~ A certificate of completion and the opportunity to become an Urban Darling stylist ~

Please note that at present our Stylist In Chief, Luisa Lucia, is the only stylist available to teach the program.

“Darling University has literally changed my life.  My mentor, Luisa Lucia, opened so many doors for me as a stylist.  Without her I would not be who or where I am today.  Luisa taught me how to take my skills as a stylist and turn them into a successful career.  The education Darling University provided has given me an amazing platform from which to grow.  The opportunities are endless!  I am truly thankful to Urban Darling CCO Luisa Lucia, and CEO Brandon Esposito, for shining a light on a small town girl’s dream. Because of Urban Darling I am now living my dream.”
