I went to school here to become a barber and I have to say it was a roller coaster ride filled with a lot of ups and some downs mainly personal downs but the school was great they push you to become the best version of yourself. They do a great job getting you state board ready, I’m definitely coming out of this school confident in my professional ability’s and ready to take on real world!
