I was looking for a beauty school, so of course I went for some informational interview. Zenzi's seems like a good deal for the money. It's not the best school, but it's deffinately not the worst (see Hilltop in Daly City.)
Zenzi started the school 20 years ago. She's a sweet lady who really wants students to succeed. They'll be moving into a new space soon and it promises to be nicer than their temporary space on Market.
I wouldn't let any of the students touch my hair. Theirs is bad enough.
