First time going to this location and it was definitely worth it! It was super affordable and staff were all very nice. Celeste (I hope I spelt her name right) was the one doing my hair, and I gotta say she did such an amazing job!

As a student, who’s been at Empire for 7 weeks now, I am thoroughly impressed with the commitment and professionalism that Empire Beauty School offers. I have made great progress and learned so much in my nail and my skin care module. I’m certain that I can only go up from here becoming a better Cosmetologist. The director and educators really give you their all and are dedicated to you becoming the best you can be. They give you the resources you need and really care about your success in the Beauty industry. Empire is a great choice if you’re looking to grow as a Cosmetologist and be successful.
