Lets start off.....first, I have been in the beauty industry for over 15 years. I currently hold a cosmetology instructor/educator license, a cosmetology license and separate manicurist license. Most of the staff at Federico College of Hairstyling are on a power trip and are extremely rude to the students, customers and family members of the students. Some of the staff exercise their authority to the extremes. The students have to bow down to the staffs every command or face suspension, that they hand out like candy. The students can’t express there own thoughts, style or opinions if it does not conform to the staffs personal likings. The students are often in tears because they are the brunt of the instructors disfavor.
The environment that these students are forced to be exposed to is comparable to that to a spoiled bully that lacks compassion, understanding, continuity almost everyday. The staff make up new rules regarding policies, test calculations and other matters, when it benefits them.
If the staff can find any reason to write up a student the staff will. If the student is, for whatever reason written up or suspended(due to medical reasons, car accidents, the flu, expressed creativity, sick children), they then can disqualify the student, collect the entire tuition from that student, there by opening a spot for them to collect a new tuition fee from a new student without having any ramifications. Yes, they found the money making loop hole. You decide, read all the reviews, ask around, read their policy manual and then decide if that’s truly the school for you.
