Going to school at Vanity Studio, was a great experience. I was stuck working a dead end job, and didn't know what I wanted to do with my future. Thankfully, my sister came home from a college fair and brought home information for the school. Little did I know, this is what would kick start my future. The personalized attention that you get from the one on one mentoring really gives you the push that you need to do well in school. In addition to getting personalized attention, the instructors give you real salon experience by allowing you to shadow them as they work on a variety of clients. The instructors work very hard to familiarize you with the salon environment and prepare you for your own clients in the future. Overall, Vanity Studio is a tight knit family, that welcomes new students with open arms and gives them the foundation for success.

Starting school I was also taking English classes. Vanity Studio School of Cosmetology was encouraging that I really could be a professional. Part of the school program is to go into other salons for internships, to try them out and gain experience. I was able to become employed at a salon I interned at. Since working there I have been able to offer extension services I learn in school and have built a clientele.
