I’m a previous student at pinnacle! This is the best school in the area if you’re thinking about going to cosmetology school! I went to take my state board tests and passed with good scores! Other students from different schools didn’t have a clue what was going on! They make sure to prepare you for absolutely everything!

I have never felt my hair so soft!!! I felt very satisfied with the service, I appreciated the time she put into my hair!
