Original review posted by user Mar 27, 2013

Two police reports filed for defamation of character and bodily threats...stay away if you want a professional career in cosmetology..what a joke, they care about one thing and that is financial aid! Fights break out and nothing is done the student who speak up about the violence and silenced or ignored.

We are told to chop anyone's hair...the pedicures are given by sitting on the floor on a filthy rug with a plastic liner in a bed pan!

They can't keep appointments and instructors punch a time clock and leave students alone to finish customers hair...really... this has happened twice, I know I am a miserable student there half way through the course and am stuck there because they hold on to refunds of financial aid for months to make it difficult to throw in the towel...parents and prospective student please steer clear if you are wanting a professional education!!!!!

Monetary Loss: $17000.

I was an instructor there, and I left once I saw the lack of integrity there. The school only wants the funds.

The push the students through and these students barely learn enough to take the state board. They lie to students and leave the students to believe that what they are getting is a refund check. They don't realize that, the money is coming from loans and they have to get paid back. The school has a written policy that it hides from potential students that after a certain amount of hours completed, the student has to pay the entire fee of the education as if they completed it there.

With that said, once that happens, and the school takes out the maximum monies, the student is left capped out and unable to get financial aid from the government...They'll have to receive private loans.

Ask how many students really get their licenses the first time around and then research it. I am sure you will get a different answer.
