My time was well spent here! The school is very accommodating to my schedule due to my work schedule. Ms. Deidra & Mr. Toney pushed us to our limits in every aspect of this program. Now that I am currently prepping for state board, Mrs. Nicole Young has outstanding. One thing about all of these instructors, they will meet you where you are at & help you get the job done! They’re main priority is to get up not only prepped for state board but prepared for the journey in this beauty industry. Life is what you make it & Blue Cliff has been a home away from home.

I wanted to share my experience at Bluff Cliff Hair Salon, even though it's a bit late. I visited on the Saturday before Mother's Day, and despite their busy schedule, Ms. Barbara assigned Trellis, a student who was handling her first client—me. Trellis was incredibly professional and kind throughout. She cleaned, blow dried, and styled my hair impeccably. The students at the salon are truly talented. Ms. Barbara provided invaluable wisdom, guidance, and support. I was thoroughly pleased with the service and have already recommended Trellis and the other ladies to several people. I look forward to returning throughout the summer!

My experience at blue cliff has been amazing. I’m going for dental and the program so far has been fun and educating. Ms. Maxwell has been the best she makes the lesson exciting and takes her time to make sure we understand everything.
