Hays Academy of Hair Design was the best experience of my educational and professional life. Having attended another very well known school for cosmetology, I was worried I would be facing the same impersonal, and cursory approach to this field. I expected to be a number in a class and that I would just have to find my own enjoyment along the way. I was wrong. The owners, instructors, and staff at Hays Academy are not only extremely knowledgeable, they are warm and inspiring without sacrificing an ounce of professionalism. Everything about the way they taught me was incredibly impressive. Every day was a chance to immerse myself in the mindset of being a cosmetologist. They not only taught me top of the line techniques for hair, skin, and nail care; they taught me how to be successful by providing field-oriented business classes. I have never laughed or smiled so much while being challenged to be the best I can be. I will always be thankful for the knowledge and confidence I gained from Hays Academy. Truly, there is no other school out there like this one.

Denise was my stylist today and I had her cut my hair like normal, but also requested to lighten up my gray hairs without doing a full color. She did a great job and the instructional staff were very attentive and helpful like usual. Have been going here for over 4 years and have not had a bad experience yet. They do fantastic work and the staff greets me by name. Keep up the great work.

I have received several shellac manicures from Kaylee Kingsley. She always does an amazing job. She is very thorough and makes sure my nails look great. My manicures from her last over 3 weeks! That's longer than any other manicure has ever lasted. Kaylee has a passion for doing nails and you can see that in her high quality work. I have recommended her to friends who are also pleased with her work.

I had the privilege of Brianna Andregg a student at the Academy to cut my hair. She was so confident and professional in her work, polite, and easy to talk to. Brianna alongside with her amazing instructors made my experience enjoyable, and confident knowing she knew what she was doing. I have very thick hair which can be any hairdressers nightmare, she cut my hair with such ease and and delight getting to work with such difficult hair as mine. I'm glad I gave her the the opportunity and the experience. If you are looking for a inexpensive place to get your haircut or colored, along with many other things they offer, I would definitely recommend going there and booking a appointment with Brianna. Also doing a great cause giving their students the opportunity to learn and grow in their career, which I find amazing.

I have been to the Hays Academy a few times and have had great experiences every time. Today, I went and got my hair trimmed up and dyed. I have very thick, frizzy, curly hair and Maddie Tanger was the one who did my hair! She was very patient with me and did exactly what I wanted! My hair was uneven from a previous cut, and she leveled it out and dyed my hair the perfect color! She made the experience very pleasant and gave great input when I was undecided on what I wanted done to my hair. I definitely recommend anyone to check it out who hasn't before! The price is so reasonable and you get amazing service! It's a scary thought to have students do your hair, but they have teachers everywhere making sure that the students are doing exactly what they should be and the students are all very talented!! I know I will definitely be going back if I need anything else done!
