    This is an excellent program taught and supervised under the directions of some of the best qualified instructor in their field. I have been utilizing there services for over a year now. Students are extremely proud of their work. They interact with one another; learn from one another and by all means get the support from thier peers if/when necessary. I am honored t o have one of our own student work on my personal groming/hair. Students have excellent recommendations to give their customers if they determine some area of the head need closer attention. Under the direction of Sydney Thomas, no one is over looked or placed in the corner. Mrs. Sydney is all that… she knows her skills; commands excellence and thus produce excellent beauticians. Instructors work extremely hard in providing tjheir students with adequate materials that will prepare them for the Cosmetology Licensed Board. I am proud to have one of our own … prepare my hair and keep my head looking up-to-date. Thanks for keeping this program !!!
