Candice Craigo

President Healthwise ExerciseManager, Sally's Beauty + SFX MUA

In 2014, I attended Intentional Academy for their Full Specialty and Makeup Artistry programs. Advanced Makeup Artistry was the highlight of my time there, and since learning the intricacies of Special FX and airbrushing makeup, I have been a part of a successful haunted-house makeup team for the past four years and recently promoted to the lead of that same team for the 2018 haunt season. International Academy has greatly impacted my life both professionally and personally, and I am forever grateful for every faculty member that played a part in that success.

Nush Maghoo

Salon Owner - Glam by Nush, Mauritius Island

International Academy made me the person I am in my career today. I had the chance to fly across the other side of the world to receive the best education in this industry, surrounded by the best instructors, to help me reach my full potential. Coming back to my country which is, Mauritius Island, I had the privileged to open my own salon named Glam by Nush. Being a young entrepreneur, I feel that a big part of my education at International Academy prepared me to make my salon a success in my country. In less than three years, I am now an ambassador for Schwarzkopf Professional, which made me specialize myself in hair coloring. What I have achieve in these past three years, is a pure blessing. I feel eternally grateful to Mez, and everyone I had the chance to meet in the School, for always pushing me forward. I encourage every young student that has a passion for this field, and a determination to achieve greatness, International Academy is definitely going to change your life. The sky is the limit.

International Academy really stuck out to me when looking for schools to start the esthetician program. I'm so happy that I decided to go through the journey with International Academy! The education I received was, hands down, amazing. My instructors really taught me so much that prepared me for the skincare industry. I cannot recommend International Academy enough. If you want the best training, then this is the school for you. The teachers, the curriculum, and the atmosphere are all top notch!!!!
