Overall Rating:

The instructors are lazy, rude, and are often too busy to help you because they're outside smoking cigarettes. The staff treat you as though you're still in grade school. There were some issues about students not receiving the correct amount of hours; they usually had less than what the student had calculated. 12 grand for Cosmetology is not worth it when you have to teach yourself how to cut hair. Wait on the waiting list at the Livingston school. It's worth it.
