If you’re looking for a good beauty school, run far away from this one. They’re the most cheap, unprofessional, and gaslighting school I’ve ever come in contact with. I was enrolled in the esti nights program. We went through 2 teachers within the 6 month course, we only learned basic facials and waxing. Then we were blamed for “not saying anything sooner” even though the teacher told us she was in contact with administrators. Our last teacher then admitted to being unqualified for the job and not knowing what she was teaching. Goes to show they will just hire anyone to fill the spot, as long as they’re getting paid. The employees at the school will act nice when you’re there but once you graduate, they won’t answer any emails or calls. I could honestly go on and on about why you shouldn’t go. So upset I wasted my money on this school.
