I first came to this place because it was an emergency and I had to get a haircut before a party. I was nervous because I know they have students and I didn't want them to mess up my hair. They were very professional and treated very nicely. I loved the service and my haircut. I have since been going here and haven't had any problems. I will continue to use their service and do recommend them.

If there were more than five stars I would be adding them! My experience with the wonderful ladies of Empire beauty school was amazing to say the least. I had a fashion show launching my most important collection to date and Mrs. Class with only one weeks notice agreed to do the hair and make up. I'd heard good things about Empire beauty school from other friends in the in the business but the support that was given to me by these ladies was immeasurable.On the first night of my show, I was running so late that I hadn't even gotten the chairs out for the fashion show. Immediately, the lady is when into action and did the entire seating set up for my fashion show. Never in a million years did I think that they would have done such a thing. I would've certainly never asked if they hadn't volunteered but I was so stressed at how behind I was that I gladly said thank you!Everyone involved with so incredibly professional and skilled. I absolutely loved the way my models looked. They made them look just as I was hoping. They created a luxurious and sophisticated look that that matched perfectly with my clothing. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all that you did to make my show a success! I look forward to working with these fine ladies again very soon for my next event!

I'm writing this review for the wonderful students at Empire Beauty School as a member of Allentown HOPE Community Church. These students have come with their teacher Ms. Class and volunteered their time and talent to several of our community outreaches. They have donated their time to do hair styling, hair braiding and face painting. Their disposition and attitude is always friendly, respectful and professional. We sincerely appreciate their desire to help our local community and how well they represent their school. Thank you Empire and Ms. Class for all you do to support our efforts to bless our community.

After being a stylist for over 20 years I decided to further my education at Empire beauty school to become an educator. The knowledge and education that they have given me will help me further my career in the industry as well as the salon I currently own. After coming back to school can be scary but with tall the educators and the tools that they have given me they have help me feel comfortable and returning back into the school environment as well as help me grow and succeed as a student. This location is wonderful . I couldn’t think of No wear else to go. Thank you again empire.
