I've been going to this school off and on for 9 years. The students have always done a good job and the instructors always signs off their work. My issue is the senior discount age has increased to 65 but was 60. I know the school will make more money but I was disappointed about the age increase. Maybe I will go to another beauty college closer to home.

Took a long time but plenty of staff helping as well as three instructors. I always see instructors and they frequently visit the students working on people's hair as well as mine. Yes it took a while but it was a few firsts for my student to do a full hair transformation. From brown to grey. She did awesome and lots of help and support. I felt welcomed and was never left unattended or uncomfortable at any moment. Professional experience for me Will be going back very soon for more services!

PLEASE BE ADVISED BEFORE GOING HERE! I made the decision to go and I understand that students might not be fully skilled but I never expected to get what I received. THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO TEACHERS WALKING AROUND CHECKING ON WHAT IS BEING COMPLETED. It says there are teachers on the website and I saw one. The red head teacher stayed at the front laughing with people and I NEVER ONCE saw her do a single thing. When she approached me about my hair she did nothing. I asked for a trim and 6 inches were cut in the back... to the point that it is so short my curls won't curl. I take responsibility for trying a school for the first time but this school needs to take responsibility for their lack of attention! I've never had such a bad haircut in my life and I have to wear a hat to cover it. I wish that were a joke but it's not.

Fantastic service. Most of the students do good or better in cuts, some are very skilled. AOH supports Veterans which puts a smile on my face.

In 2009 I came to this school and got licensed in hair design and my experience was so good i had to come back this year to become a full cosmetologist. In the last nine years my experience has been uplifting and life changing . The staff here is excellent towards making the students prepared for any field in cosmetology. I recommend that anyone attend this school to only have the same experience i have.
