Overall Rating:

I've always been very satisfied with my services. Not once can I say I was disappointed. Very please with price and services. Polite, professional and timely.

Overall Rating:

I went into my appointment with an open mind given the fact that they are students in training and will most likely make mistakes. What I didn’t expect was the professionalism of the staff IN CHARGE (TIFFANY) to be lacking so immensely that she was training the students on how to up the prices of the service when it comes to coloring. She strategically guided the students to make sure the bleach on my hair would be thick so she can charge for extra bowls of bleach to be used since it’s not thinned enough to saturate. I went into the salon with an picture of a model with blue hair and came out of the salon with blotchy, green, fried hair. Even the students were upset with her guidance as they knew that she did not have the best interest at heart. She kept circling the area giving them “advice” and cracking unprofessional jokes that made me feel extremely uncomfortable. I have never left a salon crying no matter how bad the outcome was until this appointment. Guess what? She charged me full price for the damage she caused to my hair too! When I confronted her about the results, SHE WAS ARGUING BACK! Whoever put this lady in charge needs to seriously reevaluate what they want for this school and business. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place at all costs. NOT worth the damage, tears, and money! Tiffany, shame on you.

Never have I ever dealt with such a rude, unprofessional, and vile mouthed manager, Tiffany should be terminated. I have been to many Empire Beauty schools for their very affordable, student budget friendly haircuts but this one however has been by far my worst experience. The students are very sweet and detail oriented but when forced to pick up their paces by an indifferent manager whose sole focus is to empty chairs, things start going wrong with the head of who ever is sitting in the chair, and when confronted to fix the issue due to the manager's fault, it turns into an argument rather than an admitting of fault and mending of the issue. Would rate 0/5 if possible. Will not be coming back here or referring this place to any friends looking to get licenses or haircuts.

Overall Rating:

I have gone to beauty schools for years. It has mostly been a great experience. I have been to three Empire Beauty School salons in the NY area. One of them was this one in Queens-Astoria. I noticed that unlike the other schools, it seems there are very few clients. And it is clear why. When you walk in as a client it is as if you are an annoyance or nusence. You ask a simple question about services and you get a big harangue. Everything is about what they can't do and won't do. If something goes wrong, instead of focusing on fixing the issue, the people in charge get defensive and it seems to be all about money instead of making it right for the client. Anyone going to a beauty school would be aware that it is a school and give some leeway for that. Yet you would still expect to be treated courteously and things to be run professionally. The students don't seem very happy either. Someone going into the beauty business would benefit from learning about good customer service. That keeps customers trust and loyalty. And it keeps them coming back. I will not be coming back.

Love the professionalism this beauty school represent. The price is easy on the purse and you get 100% professional beauty service. You can't go wrong. I have thick curly hair And no matter what I set my mind to do. (I'm always doing different stuff to my hair) The results exceeds my expectations! Thank you Empire!
