Hair has always been a great passion of mine, and when I knew cosmetology was the career I wanted to pursue, I looked long and hard for a loyal school. I found the perfect one, International Academy! So, I packed up my bags from Chicago and moved down to Florida. I learned great skills in coloring and cutting and had lots of feed back from all of the great, knowledgeable teachers. I have now been doing hair for 5 years and am having great success!

As a veteran to the skincare and spa industry, I have collaborated and worked with thousands of estheticians worldwide. Many of them have graduated from the International Academy in Daytona Beach and speak very highly of the stellar education they obtained. I believe this school is one of the leading educational facilities in the US.
