Empire Beauty School is a really good place to become a cosmetologist. The educators really care about you and your education. You are put first here, with much needed tough love. You being successful is their main priority. And it is an even greater place to be as an educator. I graduated from Empire and am now an educator with the company. I’m very excited for our growth in student body here, and to watch my students clock out in their 100 hour program, as I once did.

Empire Buffalo has definitely made me feel at home very quickly. The environment is extremely enjoyable, the staff and students are beautiful inside and out, and my teacher Ms. Jade is the real deal, love her! Can’t wait to continue my beauty career here. I truly will always recommend this school to any aspiring stylists.

This experience has been the totality opposite of what I thought when someone sign up for school the first thing you think of is books work and it’s boring also somewhere you don’t wanna be. Being here I sometimes forget im at school it’s a great learning experience while having fun and enjoying what you love doing the most. You will learn something new literally every day that will help you later on in life even if you don’t use it today or tomorrow every skill counts. When I graduated highschool I said I will never go back to school and look at me now I look forward going to school I love it here and the students teachers and directors make it even better.
