I am a currently enrolled student at Springfield empire, the staff is really unorganized and never has anything set in stone. I started here and signed a contract of 1250 hours to complete the program, in the middle of me finishing up my program with only about 4 months left they change the requirements for graduation and changed the dress code. Changing the dress code was a terrible idea for the student body because we all obviously quit our jobs to come to school so how could we afford a new waredrobe as students already Barely making it by as is because we have no time to work. The new requirements are not realistic AT ALL! This is not the contract I signed and I’m very sad to say that I have to stay here to get my cosmetology license. The teachers also do not care if you get a lunch or not and that is very unlawful, they will give you a client on your lunch while you are clocked out which makes absolutely NO sense. The only bright spot of my education was pre salon, whom I had Mrs Ann and Ms Angie, they treated us all fair with no favorintism and were very polite and wanted to see us get our licenses. I am a consumer and I paid $20,000 for a terrible experience here. I don’t recommend this school to anyone.

Empire Beauty School in Springfield is the only salon that can give a medium red color. The regular salons can't do that.

Some of the students really know how to do beautiful hair and make it grow ; others need more time in the classroom to build up their skills in different areas. You go for the price and when your lucky you get a person that understand hair and is professional that's just needs a license. I have been to so called professionals and everyone that has a license doesn't understand how to do everything some just know the basis things . Empire is just like any other place you go.
