I went here to get my hair, nails, and makeup done for prom and when I asked how long the wait is, the woman said "There's no way we can take anymore people today. Just no way." And that was it. They didn't take appointments for this, just walk-ins. And they closed at 2. Just not a friendly environment.

I had a horrible experience. I drove from Cincinnati to go here because I thought it was good. First the instructor seem overwhelmed as it was a Saturday an there was a lot of people. But she was externally rude to the point that I was in tears about to leave. My 11 year old daughter was with me and she was upset at her actions as well. Roxy the student was nice and so I stayed. I wanted blond highlights. They told me to dye my hair back to red and come back on Wednesday to get highlights. So I came Wednesday for a different instructor to say to me Hello I thought you was going to say hello to me but I guess not!!! Then they told me they can't do the highlights. I was so upset that I just walked out. Now I paid 75.00 for something that I didn't even want and gave the student a 30.00 tip because I was going to get my nails and eyebrows waxed so she was going to do all. So long story short I drove there and back twice and had terrible service both times. I will never go there again!!! and I have been to hair schools before and had wonderful service. I do not understand why they have to be so rude and tell me one thing then another. So I now have to go somewhere and pay another 70 to get what I wanted in the first place. I should get my money back but I was offered a free service nice but I will never go back to that place again!!!!!! Update went to Supercuts the same day got the highlights they did a great job and it was cheaper than this school! Oh yeah and thanks Mel the director of the school for calling me back. Great customer service.

These people will charge you thousand and thousands of dollars if you join their school and decide later that this is not for you even if your with them for less then a month they say you owe them over $4,000!!! What a rip off and a scam charging 18 year old girls money they don't have because they wanted to do something different with there lives... And yes they will charge you thousands of dollars even if you return all their belongings and they don't even have the nerve to tell you themselves they have an operator call and tell you instead of to your face or giving u an actual phone call. And then finally last but not least when u call to see why you owe them so much money they send u to voicemail and do not call back!

First of all as soon as I went through the door, it was very clean and very inviting. The stylist I had was Tabatha Cochran. She greeted me with a smile and asked how my day is going. I had a great experience at Empire Beauty School.
