Testimonials

After graduating from Intl Academy I went out into the real world of with such confidence and was ready for anything had to offer me. I started with Hair Cuttery and in 6 months became the manager. Several years later I opened my own salon with another Intl Academy grad and have successfully been in business over 4 years thanks to my fabulous education, love and support from Mez and the entire staff at Intl Academy!

I escaped East Berlin Germany to the USA to follow my dreams. I discovered International Academy. It was the best decision I ever made! After graduating I have since bought my own salon and ran it for the past 10 years with 9 employees. I owe it all to International Academy for all their experience and training. I highly recommend this wonderful school for a life changing experience. Always follow your dreams!

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!
