During my internship, I got to go between the salon and the classroom so it made things fun and interesting. I got to pretty much choose wherever I wanted to go and got accepted right away. They taught me so many things most people in beauty school don't learn and I was so excited to show others what I learned. I'd 100% recommend the Cosmetology and Spa Academy, because you learn everything needed to succeed here.

The teachers here are perfectionist, which you absolutely have to be in this industry. It's great, because they always have pointers to increase our efficiency and up our skill level. The internship program is a great tool here also, because lots of these internships turn into full time jobs after we graduate and provide much need real world experience when dealing with clients

The programs are so flexible, they have part-time classes, full-time classes, & night classes. Even another campus if that became more convenient for me. Before I started, one of the instructors sat down and talked to me about what I should expect and she later became my mentor, teaching me so much. I loved the competitions and special events we participated in. The whole overall vibe was fantastic & creative.

Great school, right away I felt very comfortable with the teachers and all the staff. The education was amazing, as well as the teachers. The teachers would go out of their way, with no hesitation to help a student out! They really, really care about their students. I love the career field I chose to be in, I love doing something new every day, with the industry constantly changing. The beauty industry is definitely a passion of mine, and will be for the rest of my life!

I had no idea what I wanted to do as a career, but after speaking to Ned, I said to myself that this is it and started Cosmetology Classes the very next day! I loved the environment, my teachers, and the Sassoon internship program. I felt it gave me the best & most important skills needed to succeed in this industry. I now own my own business called Ricci Kapricci Salon in Chicago and I love what I do... it doesn't feel like work and I make people feel good about themselves.

I chose Cosmetology & Spa Academy because I felt so comfortable there. I also knew I would get the best education possible. One of my favorite things about the Cosmetology & Spa Academy were all the extra events that we were part of. I also liked the fact that all the educators were always there, and accessible to the students. I absolutely love doing hair, it is my passion. I love giving people makeovers and making them feel good about themselves. I hope to build a large clientele and rent a booth someday. If you have the same passions and ambitions, you'll fit right in at the Cosmetology and Spa Academy.

It's good that your not always in a class room, that way you get real world experience like dealing with real clients, complaints, compliments, selling products and more. I feel like they taught me everything I need for great success and this is the best way to learn!

First, I chose Cosmetology and Spa Academy because of the convenient location, but after I met the staff and students, I couldn't picture myself ANYWHERE else. I absolutely love everything about the school. The challenges every day. The other students and faculty at the school. I feel so grateful every day that I get to come to a school where I feel respected, useful and helpful.

I chose Cosmetology & Spa Academy because I liked the way the program was laid out. They used the latest Sassoon techniques. The facility looked brand new and was kept meticulously. I loved the teachers. I was taught by Ms. Dar and Ms. Dita. I felt they were dedicated to getting the best out of all of us, and I liked that they were up to date with the industry.
