I went to this school, they are really nice when they want to get you to sign up for their program. But once in then the fun starts. There are to many wardens in the prison, rules...

Best!! 3/9/2011

Best experience I've ever had! more

I learned so much at a.h.d! 2/3/2011

I learned so much at a.h.d! all the instructors were amazing! My mom went a.h.d 10 years ago & I couldn’t have made it anywhere else! I feelt ready for me to graduate! Thanks A.H.D! more

I would definitely choose the academy 2/1/2011

I really enjoyed going to school there. The instructors were really great. Also, at the academy you're getting alot more hands on experience than you do at Majestany and that helps out alot with being confident in your work. My sister in law went to Majestany and she said sometimes her instructor could be a bit harsh. I also had a cousin who went there and she didn't mind the no matter where you go you're going to hear good and bad. If I had to choose again I would definitely choose the academy. more

You get alot of hands on training 1/31/2011

My experience with it is that the instructors are great! The classroom setting is alot of fun and they go over the material alot so that you're well-prepared for the exams. You get alot of hands on training as you start cutting hair 5 weeks into the program. You have to do a minimum of 250 haircuts/styles and at the end, you have to do three job placements in three weeks so that you have a feel for the culture at any workplaces. When I was researching Majestany and the Academy of Hair Design, I also saw that the tuition was cheaper which you should also take into consideration :) more

Extremely knowledgeable and helpful 12/28/2010

The instructors at AHD are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I learned a lot from each and every one being that they all have the specialties in the cosmetology field. AHD's instructors have helped me to be confident in passing the State Board Testing due to their passion and drive. This has been a life changing experience for me! more

All the teachers are great! 12/21/2010

I was changing careers, and I chose academy of hair design for my training. All the teachers are great! I especially love Mr. Mark D. he is the most patient teacher in the WORLD. The management is a very caring group of people. I highly recommend Academy of Hair Design. more

Hard working staff 12/17/2010

The Academy of Hair design is an amazing school with hard working Staff and Students. The Teachers go above & beyond to keep the Students reach their potential. I am truly privilaged to have been able to attend & graduate this school. Ms. Lori, Mr. John. Ms. Sandy & all the other Staff behind the scene are knowledgable & caring and make this school a fun and energetic learning environment. I highly recomm coming down and checking out the school. Either as a client or potential student. more

Very up-to-date 12/15/2010

The Academy of Hair Design honestly changed my life for the better. As a teenager, I never knew what I wanted to do with my life after high school. I decided I wanted to go to beauty school and pursue a career. Not only the teachers but the management staff were beyond supportive and helpful. As a student, you must put forth the effort to be successful. Some people think beauty school is the easy way out.. WRONG. If you work hard and show respect, the teachers and staff will treat you with upmost respect themselves. The Academy of Hair Design is extremely professional and very up-to-date. The staff is always working hard to make school fun and enjoyable. This school is not about laziness and disrespectful people. They encourage their students to work hard and in any situation with a difficult client, they will always have your back. I not only learned hair, skin, and nails but I also learned life lessons and people skills. This school is the best! more

Friendly and professional 12/13/2010

The Academy is a very busy place. You'll be struck immediately at all the students chopping away. Besides being a school it's also a great place to get a cheap cut. They've been around forever and students go on to cut from Supercuts to the best salons in the valley. They primarily teach hair styling, but they also give instruction on massage. The staff is friendly and professional and they are very busy. Success with this school and landing a job is part skill and very much your confidence level. They give you the tools the rest is up to you. more

Personable, competent 12/7/2010

I've never been a student there, but I have had my hair cut, my nails done and my lip waxed by scores of the students there off and on for almost 20 years. I ask every one of them how they like it and they all say "I LOVE it." When I first started going there for services, it was hard to find an instructor to just come over and check finished work. Now they are everywhere and available to the students at any time during the process. Some instructors are more personable than others and probably some are more competent than others but I've never met one that I would describe as "mean". The woman at the front desk is as friendly and professional as at any high end salon. Maybe more so. And one more thing before I go. Seniors are entitled to discounts on Tuesdays & Wednesdays. You should see how patient and cheerful the students are with some of their elderly clients who can barely walk from the waiting area to the chair. It gives me hope for the new generation. more
