    The journey at this school was no walk in the park but the majority of the things in life aren’t. My experience has definitely been a unique and pleasant one. From Covid-19 to friendships, I have made great memories and obtained a career out of it in the process. You do have to put in a lot of work and extra time to receive the knowledge you need to succeed but it will all be worth it in the end. There are a lot of great teachers ready and eager to help you along the way and plenty of students willing to support you if you allow it. After 1 year of general studies, 9 months of scanning and 3 months of externship, I am proud to say that I have acquired a job and I beginning my road to register. It is my ultimate goal. Although I have officially finished all my class, the school is still allowing me access to the lab and other resources which I think is great. It has been a great experience and I do not regret anything at all.

    Since there is so much I can say, I'll just give a list... Pros: •A couple of teachers have been extremely helpful, and I learned more with them than I have at any other schools I've attended. CONS: • They won't transfer all your credits. You have to literally show them the difference between course descriptions in order for them to entertain accepting them. • You'll never have clean bathrooms, EVER. • You have to keep records yourself of all financial and class credits because they WILL lose them. Keep your emails to reference back to. • You're told that you can work at your own pace when you have assignments due every Sunday, but then you get a 78 question pop quiz on the second day of class and the teacher didn't do a lecture the day prior or warn you of any quizzes. It doesn't matter if you work FT or have children, administration doesn't care. • They randomly switch classes, and sometimes you don't know which class you'll have until the day of or the day before, so there's no time to prepare. The list could go on. Find another school, because I'm about to. I'm extremely disappointed with this school. I've never experienced such unprofessionalism.

    Very unprofessional atmosphere in the salon. I went for a facial and it was awful. The students weren’t trained at all in this. I let the teacher know and was basically told he would just shut those services down for now. Seriously, I was not asked about allergies, my skin type, if I had sensitive skin. The students didn’t even look at my skin at all. My daughter was with me and they used the same bowl of water to rinse our face towels in. That’s so freaking NASTY. There was no massage included as the service says. There was no supervision from the teacher either. Just horrible.

    Currently I am half way through the Cosmetology Program at Meridian- and I have to say from the basic cosmo class room to the salon floor I have had nothing but outstanding teachers; who tend to your questions, and listen to the way you want to try different techniques, then guide you to do so rather then turn you down. I have learned so much and I cannot wait to finish, knowing I have teacher who want to see me succeed and do the best I can - and better!

    I have always had a passion for trying new things and have always wanted to do hair. My best friend told me about this school when I told her I wanted to take the plunge and become a stylist. As she was a graduate from this school and has been a successful stylist for almost 20 years, I took her advice and enrolled. Even though I am twice the age of all the current students, I thought I might not fit in, but was I wrong. I love the instructors as well as my classmates. Our instructors keep the classes fun and always challenge me to try something new. I am currently in my fourth month and am loving it. While I have been here I have not only garnered friends but regular guests that request me. This has boosted my confidence tremendously. This makes me challenge myself to do more advanced styles. During my second month here I was afforded the opportunity to do hair for Parrish Playworks production of Dearly Beloved. I did a total of six showings with four being at the Bradenton Convention Center and two private showings for the Lakewood Ranch Del Webb communities. I had an absolute blast and was even added to the playbill. So to say I am thoroughly enjoying myself would be an understatement.
