"During my internship, I got to go between the salon and the classroom so it made things fun and interesting. I got to pretty much choose wherever I wanted to go and got accepted right away. They taught me so many things most people in beauty school don't learn and i was so excited to show others what I learned. I'd 100% recommend the Cosmetology & Spa Academy, because you learn everything needed to succeed here."
