Maritza was phenomenal! She gave explanation of what she was doing and why. The best facial experience I’ve ever had. 5 stars isn’t t enough!

I took Skin Care and Electrology and by far the best program. Mrs Ida for skincare and Ms. Tracy for electrology are both very informative, attentive, and prepare you for everything you need to know. They are both so helpful and teach you all the skills you need. Ms Tracy prepares you really well for the state exam at the end of the course. She gives you everything you can think of, she has a 99% passing rate. She is the best. Very outgoing, she makes class super fun. I highly recommend both of these programs!

Would definitely recommend, at least for basic services. I went for a massage and a facial and loved it! The staff and students are very professional. The only “con” is that it is a classroom environment — you are always behind a curtain for privacy, but the background noise is a little distracting and it could be intimidating for people who get nervous around others.
