Testimonials

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!

International Academy provided me with a strong educational and professional foundation in which I have been able to build upon. My goal has been to elevate myself and others to new levels of success and to show cosmetology graduates that anything is possible in our industry.

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!

Cheryl H.

I have owned my spa and salon for 13 years in Florida. I was introduced to International Academy one year ago. During that time I have hired four graduates of the Academy. In my 18 years of experience in the beauty industry, I have found that the graduates of the International Academy demonstrate a superior knowledge of technical skills and a solid foundation of professionalism. I am proud to say that the International Academy has set a higher standard of learning for the beauty industry. Whenever I have an open position in my spa, I call the administrators at the International Academy for a referral of recent graduates. Of the interviews I’ve conducted with International’s graduates, I’ve hired every one of them. They have proven to be some of the best in the industry.
