I went here last year under the nail technician program and it was a great hands on experience. They supplied me with all of the tools I’d need to be successful. I’m now a year in working at a nail shop with a steady clientele thanks to the job placement program. 10/10 recommended if you want to get licensed.


I’ve only been going to this school for three months and I’ve learned so much. I’ve always had an interest and a good understanding of hair but the school has helped me improve what I already knew and help me understand what I didn’t. All of the teachers are very nice and will help you with anything you are having trouble with. I’m really excited to graduate and start my life as a hairstylist.


Thank you Academy of Hair Design for pushing me, being there for me, challenging me, and most helping me have confidence in the beauty industry. I am very glad I chose this school. It has been a very positive place to be. Everyone is so welcoming and it's something I'll never forget! Thank you!!


Academy of Hair Design has been an amazing experience. The teachers are informative and dedicated to what they do and want to see us all succeed. The environment is filling and educational but also fun. I would encourage anyone to at least check it out and see for yourself. Plenty of tools and lessons and also hands on experience.

Extremely pleased with my progress in the Nail Tech Program at Academy of Hair Design! Signing up was the first step toward opening my own shop. Truly feel that every hour I'm in school I'm literally taking a step toward my business.
