About Us

Eastern Arizona Academy of Cosmetology (EAAC) was founded by Drew and Debbie John in 2005 along with an Eastern Arizona College partnership agreement.  The school is conveniently located downtown between Safford and Thatcher, AZ and within 2 miles of the EAC campus.  The Academy was created in a unique partnership with Eastern Arizona College to allow our students to receive college credits to continue their education towards other degrees.  EAAC is a State of the art facility with the most modern educational technology available being used.  


In July of 2015, EAAC was purchased by Tucker and Nicole Lucas.  Nicole has been an instructor at the Academy since 2010, and has worked in a handful of different salons since 1997.  With 7 professional instructors and over 100 years of combined experience, the one on one instructing is top notch.
