Testimonials

Its about the journey…I graduated from Intl Academy with a strong foundation in cosmetology as a stylist and an educator now over 10years. I am proud to help cultivate and inspire the beauty within us all and visually express it to the world.

Tina 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.

. . . After many years as a practicing lawyer and not yet ready to retire, I decided to re-visit the skincare business. Being an active octogenarian I enrolled at the International Academy, a private school, graduated, and obtained my state license as an esthetician. IA is a fabulous school, providing interesting classes, patient teachers, and an overall pleasant [experience]. I have been actively working in a salon in Florida and loving every minute of it. Who says you can’t learn a new skill and start a new career at 80!

. . . I began working in the field of beautification as a professional licensed Barber three years ago. This is the job for me, I've grown a clientele that is similar to my viewpoints, humor, and generally good people that you want to surround yourself with. This has by far been the best decision of my life professionally for my mental health, financial security, and general happiness. I never saw it coming and couldn't be happier for it.
