The receptionist here at the college messed up my appointment three times. They do not ask for phone numbers of their clients so they never call you if your appointment is cancelled or you are switched to a new student. The worst customer service ever!

I've been here more than once just for a simple roller set and while I understand they are learning,I thought roller set was pretty simple. I guess not i will not be returning its been bad to say the least every time I've gone. Also they wanted me to pay this last time, my hair was horrible and still wet! Im sure they would've tried to do it over but was very upset by then and just wanted to go. The teachers were walking around they saw it didn't look good.

The faculty, staff and owner are very professional and run a top notch educational facility! I have two close friends currently attending the Cosmetology program and they are nothing but happy with their experience. I myself, have received services in both the cosmetology and massage clinics and have always been pleased with the outcomes. I have two daughters and am hoping this is the college they choose to attend!

I recently went in for a cosmetology service (I wanted my hair dyed) and I absolutely loved my experience! I went in initially not knowing what I wanted to do with my hair, just knew I wanted a change, and the students/staff were so helpful in helping me decide what I want. I am also mixed race, so I have a difficult hair texture. Not only did the student give me a great hairstyle, they accommodated my hair needs perfectly! Will definitely visit again!

There is nothing that I enjoy more than a good massage. I had moved to Wilmington several months prior to discovering the College of Wilmington and my only regret was that I had not discovered it sooner. I appreciated the warm greeting I got when I entered and I appreciated their efficiency. I was introduced to my massage therapist within minutes of my arrival and I was delighted that I never had to sit and wait. Chrissy, my therapist, was diligent in finding out any medical history I might have had and I was most impressed with the questions she asked me regarding the type of massage I preferred. She could not have been more professional and of equal importance, she listened. She massaged me exactly the way I wanted; relaxing and therapeutic. What I found particularly awesome was, although I had not told her about a particular problem I was having with my back, as she began the massage, she discovered it on her own. When she pointed it out, my naive response was, "How on earth did you know that?" Next time I'll know not to conceal anything!!! The massage was divine. I had only one comment, when my time was up: "I wish I had more body parts." Thanks, Chrissy for a job well done; thanks to the school for having her a part of your wonderful organization.
