I received services from Yesi Ochoa quite a few times. She’s very polite and makes sure she actually listens to what you want. My hair or nails have always turned out just the way I’ve imagined them! I definitely recommend her to all my friends and will be setting up future appointments with her!

Last January I took the Nail Technology at Hays Academy at Hays campus. My experienced was AWESOME!!!! At first, I was a little nervous to go back to school and also I wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do. I have always love doing nails so I took Nail Technology. I was always curious about Hays Academy and asked around and heard good things about the school so I inquired about it and got all the requirements done after I decided to take the course. My first day of school I was really nervous but the moment I entered the building one of the students greeted me and introduced herself I felt comfortable right away. Everybody was friendly and with a smile on their faces. They made me feel at ease right away. The staffs, the owners, instructors and students are all very helpful, friendly, kind and always encouraging to me. We are all like family at school. My instructors are all very patient and always willing to help to their students. They teach you everything not only how to do nails properly, safely, how to handle the business part of it and most importantly how to treat clients. I am proud to be Hays Academy graduate. I would definitely absolutely recommend it to anybody that wants to get into cosmetology or nail technology. Thank you so much Hays Academy of Hair Design for the wonderful experienced and for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your school. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Went to Hays Academy almost 7 years ago! 😱 Best decision of my life. I now live in California and though I do not practice cosmetology full time as I once did due to life’s journey, I compare my education and diverse skill set level and the school I went to was way better in comparison. You are not just a number but a family member. If u take every opportunity they give you, you will succeed as a student!

I chose Hays Academy for my cosmetology education because I love that they are locally owned and operated. The entire staff is so welcoming and helpful from application through graduation. I never would have found the best salon in Kansas City without my hays academy family. I am forever grateful that they prepared me to be successful in the salon even in a big city and for finding me the best fit for me after school! 10/10 would always recommend them to anyone!
