Academic Experience at Empire Beauty School - West Greensboro: To be a cosmetologist is awesome. I get to meet new people everyday. I wouldn't know about the workload, curriculum, facilities & internship/job till I start & learn more about it.

Overall Experience at Empire Beauty School - West Greensboro: My overall experience walking into the Empire Beauty School was great. I love the way it looks on the outside, but the inside is amazing to me. Yes it's kinda like a typical salon but the way they carry themselves in there was the best I've seen so far. The teachers seem really focused on their students(plus for me) rather than JUST their work. Also the environment just feels like I'm home(comfortable). I rate this school the BEST!!!

Career Services at Empire Beauty School - Owings Mills: A lot of students who graduate from Empire go on to pass the State Board test and land great jobs in salons. A few years ago Discovery Channel came down looking for students to work on a show, and the students did so well that they were hired by Discovery Channel after they graduated and took the State Board.

Overall Experience at Empire Beauty School - Owings Mills: In addition to the uniform and faculty issues, when you go in to take a tour, you're told that you'll get a tablet with your books loaded onto it. At orientation, you're told that you get the tablet when the next set of students start (Empire starts new students every three weeks). When your three weeks is up, you have to nag the administrator all day to make sure she remembers to pull you out of class at 4:00 p.m to set your tablet up. However, you only get said tablet if they came in on time. If they don't you're stuck lugging around a three pound textbook until the tablets decide to come in.

Overall Experience at Empire Beauty School - Owings Mills: In addition to the fact that the administration is unorganized, the dresscode has a lot of grey areas and most of it depends on the teacher and what kind of day they're having. I was sent home because the pants I was wearing (that I'd been wearing since the second day of school with no problems or issues with anyone) were "a denim-feeling fabric" and I'm pretty sure the only reason anyone said anything about them is because the new Home Office Head visited the school and he wasn't happy with what he saw so the administration started acting brand new to get back into his good graces again. So the next day I come back to school with the new $35 pants (and the tag showing that they are advertised as pants) I bought the day before after I left school only to be told that I technically couldn't wear those pants either "because they looked like leggings" since they fit tight to my legs. Also, if a student comes in with a black and white patterned sweater or shirt and the pattern is small enough to where the garment "appears to be grey" the student either has to take it off or go home.

Overall Experience at Empire Beauty School - Owings Mills: The one thing this school does for it's students is post jobs in a spot where student's are sure to see them; in the break room. Various salons come to Empire looking for students to fill various positions and Empire then posts them on a job board in the break room so students can come in, look to see what's available, take down the number that the salon left, and call to see about a position. Another thing is that we're required to sign up on beautycareer.com which is a website where students can post pictures of their work, their resume and cover letter and contact information so salons can contact them about open positions. Students can also search positions in a specific area and apply from the website.

Academic Experience at Empire Beauty School - Owings Mills: I had to wait a month to meet my actual teacher because they were waiting for her background check to come through for three weeks then they had to train her for the last week while my classmates and I were being tossed back and forth between three different teachers. We were told that because the curriculum was switching from 1.0 to 2.0 they realized they would be one teacher short when they moved everything around to fit the new curriculum. My thing is, they should've gotten word that they would be updating the curriculum at least a year ago, so they should have taken care of the faculty issue before they had a group of students being tossed around between three different teachers with three different learning styles.

Overall Experience at Empire Beauty School - Hooksett: the a few instructor M there are very unprofessional. not getting all the need class work/ lesson done in a well spread out matter. plus a rude ignorant red head instructor motivator treats the students in a unruly insulting manner . the "school " constantly runs out of products on the floor and on the shelves. and the students are not allowed to use real color on the mannequins. so how are the student suppose to learn when they have really no tools to use/work with. it sounds like they got ripped out of 20,000 to go "learn" at empire beauty school in HOOKSETT

Overall Experience at Empire Beauty School - Milwaukee: Even before I started the school, I've had people close to me tell me that I was going to love the school. They were right. I love everything about it. I love the atmosphere and the talk amongst the students are very friendly and caring. This school stuck out to me from the beginning because of its ability to solve every problem I had. It was like they always had an answer for me and if they didn't, they would find one. I would definitely chose this school again just to be around people like that. People who care and want to help you whenever you may need it.

Campus Resources at Empire Beauty School - Morrow: I love Empire Beauty School-Morrow. I saw bad reviews for the Dunwoody campus which made me a little nervous about the Morrow campus but now I absolutely loved my visit and I am excited about starting school this fall. I have decided to stop putting my life on hold for others and start truly living. I'm excited to start a new career and be able to provide for my children.

Campus Resources at Empire Beauty School - Grand Rapids: The Campus has all the resources each student needs to be successful. Each student gets their own kit and table during their time at Empire Beauty School, it is absolutely amazing to see! Not only do they have kits, but they have a hair salon in the school where students can literally practice owning a business and building cilental which is also mindblown.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Empire Beauty School - Wyoming Valley: Out of all of the schools I have looked at this school has the best (as in lowest) tuition. The financial aid process wouldn't be any simpler and better, its extremly quick. The education I will be getting is %100 worth the money i will be paying.

Academic Experience at Empire Beauty School - Wyoming Valley: It is going to be great, from the tours i have had. The day would being by the students clocking in, then we will start our classroom work, the teacher would teach us the material, demonstrate it, and the it would be the students turn. Once we have reached the most we are able to do in the class room, we would then start on clients and so on. The facility couldn't be better, everything in the school is up to date, clean and professional, as if we were in an actual salon. In one of the rooms off the school, there is a whole wall of internships/job opportunities that get updated frequently.

Academic Experience at Empire Beauty School - Wyoming Valley: The professors in the school are great. i have met with a few and the are the most humble, honest and caring people. the class registration process couldn't be any simpler. You would just get in touch with the school and and a representtative would call you back and then the school would call you to set up a visit and then you could go visit or just set up a meeting to apply. Then you would go in to apply and then they will help you through the rest.
