Through hard work and perseverance, Gwen Chaney-Braimoh’s dreams
are now a reality.

Ms. Braimoh has been a successful entrepreneur for 23 years.  After receiving her Cosmetology Instructor’s license, Ms. Braimoh continued her professional development by receiving advance training at Dudley Cosmetology University in Kernersville, NC.


Recognizing her potential as an Instructor, she was selected by Dudley University to represent their organization in the State of Nevada as an Ambassador.  In 1999, she was honored with their firm’s prestigious “Ambassador of the Year” award.

Armed with her Instructor’s license and after the training experience with Dudley University, Ms. Braimoh was inspired to open a School of Cosmetology in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her commitment and capabilities were recognized.  In 2002, with funding secured and licensing requirements satisfied, Ms. Braimoh co-founded and opened the Expertise School of Beauty, Nevada’s first and only African American owned School of Cosmetology.  The school’s success as a training ground was recognized both locally and nationally resulting in the co-development of a new 11,000 square foot campus with the City of Las Vegas.  The new facility opened in August 2006 and has the capacity to serve over 200 students annually.  To highlight this advancement, the school changed its name to Expertise Cosmetology Institute, but remains dedicated to teaching the art of beauty.

Although, it has been Ms. Braimoh’s hard work and perseverance that has energized her accomplishments,  it has been her history of sharing her knowledge and providing encouragement to others that make her unique.   Ms. Braimoh is also a Master Educator for nationally recognized Milady’s Career Institute, conducting Instructor Development training throughout the United States.

Expertise Cosmetology Institute is Las Vegas’ first African-American owned and operated school of Cosmetology.  We are much more than a school.  We are a family.  Our team is committed to providing students with everything necessary to become successful and self-sufficient.
