What students say about us...
  • Great School, very hands on, gives you the opportunity to become an independent artist.

    - Nisa M, Oakland, CA -

  • This school is a hidden gem. The esthetics instructor Vanessa cares about her students and is very organized and knowledgeable. Many of the students that I have met in my esthetics program own salons, work in salons or are experienced in threading, sugaring and makeup. This has exposed me to the various options in the industry. My classmates are down to earth, humble and supportive which is not always the case in "beauty school." Overall, if you are looking for an affordable program and don't believe in going into debt to get licensed, then this is a great option. Lastly, the flexibility makes it a great fit for people who are working. Check out this great program!

  • Great school. Found the hours to be convenient and educators knowledgeable about the Beauty industry. Parking is quite hard, but if you show up early to class you'll always get great parking.
