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 graduated from [Academy of Hair Design] and I had a great experience! All the educators were very knowledgeable and taught me so much … The atmosphere, all the patrons I was able to work on, and how versatile the school is, was a great advantage. I appreciate how well prepared I was for the state board and to get out in the field. I have watched [Academy of Hair Design] grow and I decided I wanted to come back to educate and give back to this industry … It's so rewarding seeing how amazing and well [the students] excel!

I chose the Academy of Hair Design for the beginning of my career because I’ve seen all the talent that’s came out of this school. all the techniques I’ve learned here, this school taught me all I need to know. The foundation I learned is all I need to keep my education growing. I am excited to finally be graduated but will definitely miss all the instructors and all the people there.

The first time I came to this school I knew that this school fits me. I'm glad I made the right choice. I learned a lot and made friends too. All the instructors are nice and I love how they teach their students. Now that I'm graduating I am very proud of myself and can't wait to show my diploma to everyone. Thank you Academy of Hair Design for making my dreams come true.
