Five Stars for the Institute of Beauty Culture 2/10/2011

My career as a business executive in a major international company and as an educator has given me the opportunity to travel and live abroad for many years. I have been a client in beauty salons in San Francisco, France, China, and the Middle East. In the US, I have, when possible, visited various beauty colleges. The Institute of Beauty Culture gets my vote as the best beauty college and even rates highly when compared to high-priced salons throughout the world. As a client, I have always been treated with courtesy whether on the phone or in person. Last year on an overseas trip I visited two different beauty salons. In each place my haircut received rave reviews. The cosmetologists were surprised when I told them that my haircut was done by a student back home in California. They both told me that the work was truly professional. As an educator myself, I am impressed by the high quality of instruction and the positive interaction between staff and students. I have observed firsthand student cosmetologists working confidently. I have enjoyed discussions with the owner about the future opportunities available to graduates. I am delighted to see the owner's daughter, who was once a student there herself, gradually take on more responsibility as a well qualified instructor and manager. Over the past four years I have followed several students during their time at the school and even after they graduate. It seems to me that a career in cosmetology would be a good path for many young people today, and I would encourage them and their parents to consider the Institute of Beauty Culture. more

Happy graduate of the Institute of Beauty Culture 2/10/2011

English is not my first language. I was afraid to attend school, but Omar and Annette were really kind to me. They were always patient. They gave me confidence not just in my ability to color, cut, and style hair; they gave me confidence in myself. I was very happy to go to school every day, to learn, to practice, to meet people. Thanks to Omar and Annette, when it came time to take my state boards, I was ready. more

Competence and Courtesy 2/10/2011

It's not easy for me to get out. I was fortunate to go to the Institute of Beauty Culture where competent students, encouraged by caring instructors, gave me a pixie hair style that I can manage. Yes, I went from rollers and hair dryers to the pixie cut. I wondered if the short hair might make me look like a boy, but Omar assured me that I would never look like a boy. The truth is that I get many compliments on my hair style, and it's much easier to manage. I like the atmosphere of the Institute of Beauty Culture. It's clean and hospitable; it's bright and cheerful. The restrooms are ship shape and wheelchair accessible. And the people are kind, respectful. Students and teachers have good manners. Their parents brought them up well! more

DO NOT GO HERE!!!! 9/3/2010

NO STARS HERE!!! Several students & teachers have left due to Omar's daughter who now runs the place & has absolutely NO people skills! She has yelled at students in front of clients & actually rudely said to paying client ""Since you don't know what you want, I'm stepping away till you finally make up your mind.""! This woman is running people off on purpose! & when a student does leave, they have to FIGHT for their refund! 6 months & still waiting for ours! We are suing. We aren't the only ones!!!!! BEWARE!!! more

Great Reputation! 10/8/2008

Upon learning of my interest in cosmotology school, my hairstylist highly recommend that if possible, I attend the Pismo Institute of Beauty Culture over the much closer Santa Maria Beauty College only because the classes at Pismo are much smaller and students receive more one-on-one time with instructors. So, I called the Pismo school to ask questions and they were super friendly and answered all my questions and invited me in for a spontaneous tour at my convenience during their regular hours. A couple days later I showed up unnanounced and was treated like an invited guest. Pros: Postive Atmosphere, Sun-lit facility, Great reputation Cons: Farther than I want to drive more
