Don’t come here to get your hair done. If you do, please keep in mind they don’t do refunds, even if they mess up you hair. They clearly messed up my hair, and I didn’t get a refund.

Overall Rating:

Costly tuition for an establishment that lacks teaching fundamentals. They're only there to help themselves. Initially its a very uplifting environment with friendly staff and you can tell they stay busy. Once you're in the circuit though, they treat you as a peon having to fend for yourself. No structure and from what I can tell, very unprofessional. Its cool the program is short and you can move onto your career within 4-6 months but otherwise I don't see where the actual funds go. You're given minimal equipment to use and the books, which are never asked to be present, are $400+ . They're making a killing on tuition alone then service fees from client walk-ins/appointments. Glad my fiance got through it but meh..learning from YouTube is just as effective.

We’ve used Beau Monde for two years now for our fashion shows and photo shoot. Every time they have been creative, responsive and quick with beautiful results. It’s a joy to work with them. I even trusted them to cut my waist-length hair to chin length on stage in front of 500 fashion show attendees as a benefit for Locks of Love. Very happy with the results. And the folks in the audience were impressed. If you’re thinking of a Cosmetology School, this is the place to go. You will learn and get results.

I am going back for my third hair cut at Beau Monde Academy at Lloyd Center. I got a better cut there than I have got at many regular salons around Portland . The atmosphere is very professional with one big PLUS! Getting your hair cut at Beau Monde is FUN not stuffy or pretentious. The there is a feeling of serious concentration and focus as they do your hair but I say Fun because the you can FEEL the excitement of busy learning in the air. All the services are strictly supervised by the friendly instructors assuring you that you are getting the cut you want. My stylist Alaska did a great job the first time and I have requested her for my next cuts. I am totally pleased with Beau Monde. P.S. Costs Less Too.
