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.
