I would not recommend this school to anyone. Not for the simple fact I don't like it, but the simple fact that they are very unprofessional. As you can see in the comments below- Teachers are not qualified to be instructors. They will stay on their phones and you will learn a lot from YOUTUBE. YOUTUBE will cost you $15,000 less. The school is run down, it looks very updated, but it is all cosmetic and not internal. It smells awful, because the pedi chairs are not cleaned properly. Rules are not the same rules that apply to every student. You will be treated differently. If you have a complaint, going to the Academy Director will do no good, she will brush it off. If you take it to the State, then Summit will find every way they can to drop you from the program you are attending. The staff turnover is unreal, there are new Instructors every few Months and some are as new as you are. Sometimes it can be very ghetto as much as having a gun pulled on you. (I know right) You will be cheated on your Supply Kits. The financial aid aspect is a nightmare, The charge for the supply Kits are also increased 3-5%, which is against State guidelines. Most of the positive comments on here are from students friends and family, Instructors that work there or friends of the owners. This school is not caring about the students and education, it is about appearances, keeping up with the high society (which it lacks). Save your money for a school like Barrett and Co who value's your education and worth.

I recently went into the Summit Salon Academy for a haircut with Nora, one of the cosmetology students. I can honestly say I have never been happier with a haircut! Nora greeted me with a warm smile and proceeded to ask me what I was looking for in a haircut. She seemed to have the innate ability to assess my hair type, explaining each step of the way as she was cutting and styling my hair. She was extremely knowledgeable about styling products and gave me some great recommendations and pointers! I left feeling fabulous (and of course, rebooked with her for my next appointment).The Summit Salon Academy was quite impressive. With a clean, modern interior and comfortable waiting area, it was hard to believe I was at a Cosmetology school! I was greeted promptly by the front desk and check-out was a breeze. I will definitely be returning!
