"The School is Professional"

I enjoy the energy of the staff of this cosmetology and barbering school. The school is professional and students seem to be advanced in their skill trait upon graduation. I recommend to anyone who is looking to advance their life and start a beauty career.

"Would Highly Recommend"

This family-owned School has licensed more barbers and beauticians than I can count. And they still offer lower tuition fees (and fewer hours) than the franchise schools in town. Locally owned since the 90's, I would highly recommend!

"The price is unbeatable"

I had a great experience here. The student I had was professional and friendly. She was knowledgeable and her supervisor was fantastic as well double checking that everything looked good. Would recommend, and will be going back for another haircut! The price is unbeatable and less then a salon even if you leave a significant tip!
