I searched for six months looking for a school where I could learn cosmetology and fully learn esthetics in the same place. When I finally found International Academy, I thought it was too good to be true. The Administration was so caring and attentive to anything that I needed to make my transition to Daytona and into school as easy as possible. Also, the facilities at International Academy are amazing! The equipment and products that we trained with are of the highest quality. The equipment in the school spa is more up-to-date and high-tech than many of the professional spas out there today. I feel like International Academy has thoroughly prepared me to be one of the best in the beauty industry!
