Horrible school. I wouldn’t recommended it to anyone. It’s a very stressful place. Rules constantly changing. Staff members quitting and they are short handed. State board doesn’t do anything about it because the school has them under their hand. The owner asked students to write good reviews. This school may have been around for a long time but it sure doesn’t seem like it. It’s so unorganized and scattered. When you first sign up they seem so nice and caring but it’s not like that at all. Doctor excuses aren’t a thing to them even if you bring it they don’t document it so you’re attendance rate goes down. And once it goes below 70% you will have to owe them money. They don’t care about family members passing and if you miss class on a mandatory day it won’t be excused. There was 2 students who attended funerals on Saturday and came back. With proof and yet they didn’t care so they ended up getting suspended the following school day. The school needs a lot of maintenance starting with washing machines. One of them makes a really loud noise and shakes so bad to the point of it coming out of the wall and flooding part of the class room. Make sure if you attend the school to get a break down of everything and always keep your contract because they will breach it. Just like how our state board test is suppose to be all paid for. At least the first one. And if you have to retake it then that comes out of your pocket. But no that’s a lie. What they don’t tell you is that you pay them for the test and when you finish and have to schedule your test that’s when you have to pay another 83$

I have been enjoying DJ's for over 8 years. Driving from Prairieville, I have continued patronizing the school for a number of reasons like available services, cost point and customer service; but especially the services from the esthetics program. This is the oldest esthetics school in Baton Rouge. Always clean. Always friendly. Not pushy to sell products or services. Consistently satisfied with services. Remember, if you are unsatisfied with any business, respectfully speak up. You are helping the business grow and succeed. Growth never stops for anyone. After 8 years of services I confidently review DJs at 5 stars overall.

DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING THEY SAY. The owner will try to swoon you in every way possible to get you to enroll. Once they have your money you’re stuck until you either graduate or pay them off. The esthetics program is a huge disappointment. They promise all these certifications but most student have to seek further training outside of school because the teacher does not actually teach. She sits on her phone or computer, ordering things on Amazon every day. Rules change daily so you never know what’s right or wrong. They don’t follow their own rules written in the book you receive when you enroll. The school will send you home for having dirty shoes or a wrinkled uniform, then the hours you miss from being sent home will be used against you. In the end, before you’re allowed to take your state board test, you will owe them more money. As if $15,000 wasn’t enough. They claim to be a MAC school but they never attend any MAC classes and no longer provide students with a MAC makeup kit. They give students a home made makeup kit they are REQUIRED to use on clients, that was made by a teacher at the school. Students have to clean on a regular basis, not just their work stations but the entire classroom, laundry room and clinic. There’s also mold growing in the clinic and in the bathrooms. The electrical wiring is hazardous and not up to code. One day the clinic almost caught on fire due to faulty wiring. If you have kids don’t even think about coming to this school. They don’t care if your child is sick and can’t go to daycare or school, they do not care if you bring a doctors excuse. It all counts against you, they will do anything to get more money out of you. Djay’s and it’s owners do not care about students, all they care about it MONEY MONEY MONEY. BEWARE!!! There are a few other programs for esthetics, choose wisely!!! The owner is an incredibly rude woman who has gone into the class room and called the students frogs and said she “does not need them, she makes her money regardless if students get expelled!” And she “has no problem expelling every single one of the students in the esthetics program.” She picks on students who aren’t on her list of favorites. She has no professional ethics!!! She talks to her students as if they were dogs. Go ANYWHERE except D’jays! There’s Aveda in covington, John jays in Kenner and now Richport on Sherwood.

I have a family member who attended this school. I've never heard anything great about this place. These people are so unorganized and unprofessional! Student were forced to sign a form stating they gave the school permission to hold their financial aid checks and the forms were all back dated to last year. These young ladies are scared to stand up for themselves thinking they will be expelled because they are threatened to be expelled so often. MONEY HUNGRY! Once I visited this school for a back treatment and I entered through the front door and one of the staff members told me to walk around the building to the back door that day I did not receive my back treatment. Complete idiots run this place. This isn't a school for parents or pregnant students either. I was told a student was pregnant during enrollment and 3 weeks later she got kicked out of the program. Parents, I hear when your kid gets sick and you have to take a few days off it counts against you and runs your time up. You will be required to pay over time fees $240 per week is a pretty penny!

BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE! STUDENTS DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! This school is horrible, the owner is miserable, mean, and only wants your money then she turns on you. They are constantly expelling students for no reason, changing rules that are not in the handbook, and set the students up for failure. Honestly I do not know how this place is still in business, it is a total scam! They tell you want you want to hear when signing up then go back on everything they told you. Sick, they don't care even with a Doctors excuse. They set the students up for failure, failure, failure! Once they have your money they don't care if you succeed, they would prefer you not succeed so they can fill another spot since they have your money. The school claims to be a MAC school and tell you that you get this awesome MAC makeup kit but you don't, they require you to buy this horrible make up kit for $650 THAT IS MADE BY ONE OF THE TEACHERS. I wouldn't buy this stuff at the dollar store but they want the students to use it on clients. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!
