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!
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!
Before I came to International Academy I was working a job that was both physically and mentally draining. I came to International Academy and fell in love with not only the facilities but also the staff. The teachers and administrators really care about their students and want them to succeed. The difference I found in this school vs. others was that at International we were like a family. I completed both the massage and skin programs and was prepared to go out into the real world. I graduated and obtained a great job in the same week. I chalk that up to the skills I learned at International Academy.
