I recently graduated AIB and while there Ive meet some beautiful amazing people from staff to students and learned many new things. I had the most wonderful nail teacher (Ms. Mel) and most passionate skin/esthetician teacher Mrs. A who actually would go above and beyond for her students to make sure they are getting the best learning experience in class for life outside of it. It wasn’t always easy trying to focus and finish with so much going on in life at times, but she has always been the most supportive, motivational and an admirable inspiration to me. I’m so happy to be finished but I will always miss being her student learning and growing. Huge thanks to Mrs. A helping me in so many ways. pushing and encouraging so many students to be successful. Keep shining diamond 💎😉 & making AIB feel like the place to be.

I am going to school here to be a full specialist. My teacher for SKIN Ms. Leslie P is the best hands on teacher here! My experience with her teaching me techniques are amazing and she’s always available for help and questions at anytime. Thank you for truly caring about each student respectfully! Great experience.
