This was my first time being a customer or getting my haircut by someone else in a long time! I've cut my hair myself for a couple years now and decided its time to let someone who knows what they're doing cut mine. Right off the bat I knew the student knew what they were doing and had lots of experience behind the chair! The experience was amazing, and I was taken care of fantastically. At the end the student gave me recommendations on what products to use to take care of my hair & scalp. Overall I had an amazing experience and will continue to visit on a regular basis. couldn't be happier!

I’ve been here twice now. Both times were for my hair. My second appointment I had a long wait ahead of me and decided to get my nails done. I told the receptionist that I wanted a cut down and a polish change. She then tried telling me my nails were fine and that I didn’t need a cut down! I didn’t know my nails were her nails? Second, she was giving attitude when I was asking her questions. She’s very unprofessional and rude to be up front.

I'm a student at Academy of Hair Design and with 4 months left to graduate, I couldn't be more excited ! This school has helped provide so many opportunities for me and has helped give me the tools to succeed. Recently I participated in a competition for the Unfiltered Experience convention and was honored to win to be on the set of The Look All Stars season 3 and be published with them! The competition was for the best transformation. I created the look at school where I am constantly being pushed to do my best and take on new challenges. AHD is definitely the best place to get a cosmetology license because they give you so much more than just a license. They provide experience, patience, an overall good energy, and help you feel confident entering into the industry.

Horrible experience. Was displeased with my nails but I did not want to make the person that did them feel bad. When the lady came around to check I was not going to say oh there is a lot of dead skin on my nails etc. The gel nail polish started to peel the next day, as I expected due to the thick layers that the student applied. I spent 45$ on a Pumpkin Pedicure and gel nail polish manicure on Wednesday August 31st. I went out of town and the more I began to look at my nails I was like this is so unacceptable. Total waste of money. I called to inquire about my hardships and they said since it has been 10 days that there is nothing they can do. I left the hair school Wednesday around 8 PM on Wednesday so it has been technically been 8 days assuming that a wild animal didn’t eat away at my nails over night because I called around 8:30 AM. I do agree I should have spoken up sooner but I honestly didn’t want to make anyone feel bad. Next time something like this happens I will just have to hurt feelings. Might still go speak with the owner though. Just not a good look to be providing customers with poor technical services. I’m no rocket scientist but I know good and well my nails should not have looked like this in less than a week. Period.

I am currently a student at the Academy Of Hair Design and I have 3 months left to graduate. I was recently nominated as a Behind the Chair, One Shot Hair Awards finalist. It's the biggest hair awards in the world. I wouldn't have entered if it wasn't for the teachers pushing me towards creating content and entering the competition. This school has helped me elevate not only my skills but also my confidence and ability to market my work in a professional manner. My advice for anyone trying to enroll into the school is DO IT!! There's amazing students here who's talent is insane! And the teachers are all super skilled, patient, and will definitely bring the best out of you.
