the school is great! teachers and staff have been committed to the school for a long time -- show deep dedication.

the environment is helpful and understanding -- they really try to help their students "get" it.

positive attitude and really trying to have a "professional" atmosphere.

i've read a few of the posts below -- every group of people has drama - this school, like every other place, is no different. it's what you make of your experience and it's how much you engage in the drama. if you're willing to be courteous and go the extra mile with manners and thoughtfulness, then i can't imagine having any problems with any of the silly little girl drama.

I felt compelled to write the post below after I read last INCREDIBLY inappropriate post earlier in this forum. I could not, for the life of me, understand what would compel someone to reduce themselves to slander in such an inappropriate way. Attacking a person's disability is a fairly low blow and only indicative of the poster's lack of valid reasoning behind the post as well as an immaturity that I find personally appalling. I felt that Career Academy of Beauty deserves a bit of support that is not from "a bribed student", rather an incredibly satisfied client. I know from personal experience that Career Academy of Beauty welcomes constructive criticism. The owner as well as all of the staff and ultimately, the students learn to, welcome both positive and negative feedback. It is a large part of the solid base needed to provide a truly high quality service to their clients. I know from years of personal experience, CAoB strives for excellence while keeping a close eye toward positive reinforcement with the hundreds of students whom have graduated and gone on to become established professionals. Their staff is continually educated in many areas and this results in a unique (to this field) very friendly, assertive and innovative education for all of their students.

Although on a personal level, your behavior disgusts me, I'd like to thank you CAgirl23 for providing the teacher you referred to with an experience to share with her students. Real world injustices such as what you've performed here, become an effective teaching tool for her. She will use this opportunity to show her students, first hand, how to overcome adversity in the eloquent way she always has... with her head held high and the deep knowledge that she has truly overcome extreme challenges both in her career as well as her life.

CAgirl23, to be quite honest, you could stand a bit of maturing. Although I would have expelled you for your underhanded and cynical public slander, please recognize the fact that Career Academy of Beauty has not given up on you so easily. Their dedication toward educating you is still very strong. It is my hope that the high level of integrity this school's staff and students bestow upon you will one day be mirrored by you.

If it's a well rounded, up to date and thorough education you seek, CAoB in Garden Grove, CA is the place to go! I am not a student, never have been. However, I have years of experience being a client and have the good fortune of having known several successful students who've transitioned into the field of Beauty Services. A few of the students that I've know have obtained excellence to the extent of becoming teachers themselves. CAoB utilizes a method that I call "Learn it, teach it, know it". Some have taken this to it's highest level and created a career out of sharing the extensive education they received at CAoB with others.

Areas of major focus are not simply on the mechanics of Beauty Services, this extends to educate their students on etiquette as well as a focus on resolving personal emotional issues which, quite frequently, lead to failure when entering this work force. The "Nuts and Bolts" course includes focus areas such as "Embracing Change", which challenges the students to step outside of their comfort zones to facilitate expansion of their expertise while remaining confident and sure of the high quality skills they are sure to acquire during their time attending CAoB. CAoB comprehensively prepares it's students to enter into this highly competitive field which requires an ever changing, forward thinking professionalism as well as continued education and great artistic talent. Career Academy of Beauty definitely fills this tall order!

If you are in need of quality services, especially last minute, you may obtain just about anything you need from them! From the impromptu date, to that important meeting with high end clients, I have elicited the service of CAoB to facilitate a look that is both striking as well as facilitating an impression of professionalism which is critical with business women! From the general trim to that last minute, and incredibly important moment that you want to last forever (in a good way!), the professional staff and well educated students at CAoB are what you need!

The reason this school has so many positive reviews is bc the students r bribed 2 write 5 star reviews by being given a free student service. But I would rather everyone know the truth...
1st of all when u are thinking about enrolling they treat u like royalty & promise all these amazing things. But everyone working in the office wasn't hired 4 their skills, but because they r friends w/ the owner. Once u enroll u aren't treated special anymore, in fact the office staff forget who u r every time they see u & u have 2 re-introduce yourself & ur whole deal everytime. Some just seem really out of it. They give answers like "I don't know, I'll find out later 4 u." & of course never do. I'm sure they get busy but if u don't feel like u r getting what u need from them, why r they there? Their job should be to help u with ur needs.
The whole thing with tuition is a scam...I don't know how it is if u r getting government help but when u r paying out of pocket they come up w/ tons of little things 2 charge u 4. It's 1 of those things where u need 2 read the fine print, only there is none, just what the staff is verbally telling u which is just a bunch of rambling...scary.
Moving on 2 the front desk staff...As a student u end up dealing w/ the front desk staff a lot & most of the time they r very rude/ bad attitudes. Talk about the office, the front desk REALLY doesn't care about our needs! I've also seen them try 2 plug the wrong types of services & products 2 clients & try 2 sell them things they don't need...they don't know what they are talking about! I've heard clients also complain about how rude they are. Basically they make me feel like even though I'm paying thousands of dollars 2 go 2 this school, I am there 2 serve them! They are making $ off the students right & left from the high priced tuition & kits 2 us working on clients all day long & setting prices that r 2 high for a school service & we never see a dime of it.
Where does all this money go? I guess paying the under educated employees, bc we have broken equptment, outdated & a washing machine from the 60's that looks like its about 2 break down! They could be using some of that money towards a janitor or some kind of cleaning service. The restroom really never looks clean.
Moving on....They r always looking 2 put in more programs at this school that they could make extra $ off of. 1 they just came up with is called Nuts & Bolts, a business class. Everyone that they coned into taking it thought it was a total waste! They aren't learning anything, the certificate is not recognized by employers & they have a dyslexic teacher teaching it which obviously makes it hard 2 learn when she can't read or write on a board. & They are not making this class optional in the future, they are making it manditory & raising the cost of tuition! The students wanted 2 drop this class & get at least some of their money back but they were told they weren't going 2 get any money back & weren't allowed to drop out. When the students decided 2 go 2 the office in a group & talk 2 someone the office staff refused to even come out & talk 2 them! Totally unfair & wrong.
My advice for choosing a school....no beauty school is perfect, every school might have their own issues that might not make it great but if you really want to do this for a career you have to choose 1 so... don't believe everything the employees are telling you but talk 2 current or former students & see what they think, Go w/ your gut & if all else fails, take cosmetology or esthetician classes at a J.C. where it's way cheaper if you don't qualify for financial aid, even if u have 2 b on a waiting list bc when it comes 2 thousands of dollars & an education, u don't want to feel like u are being cheated!

I like going to the Academy of Beauty in Garden Grove.
Why? Well the service is great. The staff and students
are friendly and courteus. Yesterday, I went for a root touch-up. The results were great! The color selected by the instructor was perfect and the job performed by the student was amazing.
In addition, the manager of the school is readily available for consultation regarding beauty products or services.

In a meeting held in San Francisco, CA I had the pleasure of meeting a very powerful leader of a multimillion dollar corporation and she mentioned Career Academy of Beauty in Garden Grove, CA and highlighted for us that the beauty industry is changing it's parameters, presentation and representation not only through the dedicated efforts of their teachers and staff, but also the direction this school is taking when it comes to theoretical knowledge, practical experience and holistic approach. Nowadays it is almost imperative to seek for places such as this one. On site they also offer medical aesthetician classes a complemental enhancement for their industry.
Ms Alejandra appears to be one of the people who by her dedication brings and ranks the student experience higher by elevating their value of learning beauty and wellness in the industry. Give them a call; set up an appointment and then let me know how it goes....!!!

When I came here for a tour and talk about attending school here I was told about all the great things they had to offer and all the great thing they would do for me. I was told how the instructors and administration would always be there to help me. Lol the laugh was on me. The school is dirty, I don't feel comfortable going in the bathrooms or eating in the dark small dirty lunchroom. The classrooms are depressing and dingy. The equipment is outdated and broken down. Now lets talk about the customer service at the front desk. Oh there is none. They are rude and pushy and have no idea what the students need to perform the services. I have had several clients up at the front desk trying to buy product and again they were rude and to lazy to find what the client needed. Its like pulling teeth to get anything done around there. One hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing. Its like "who's on first and who's on second." The daytime esthetician instructor is moody and extremely unprofessional. All they care about is making money off the students. Whats really funny is, what are they doing with all the money they get from the students and clients because it sure is not going back into the school. The place is a mess!

I've been going to CAofB of almost four years and I feel very smart about it. I've never left disappointed. They offer good facial and hair services for the price paid.

Many acquaintances think I spend loads of $$$ on spa services ...ha! only if they knew my secret!

I have been going to the Garden Grove CAB since they opened over here. I have NEVER had a bad experience -cut, color, style, facial, waxing- all have been great! The back facials are to die for -all for a very reasonable price. My teenage daughter has waist length hair and loves to go their for her color. Students are friendly and staff is professional. Why would I not go there? They are the best!

I go in every few weeks to have my hair shampooed and styled, Marie (night time) is the student that I request, she is very professional and very sweet. She will go out of her way to make conversation and to show interest in her clients, although she works full time and has a family and outside life she still comes to school with great luster and is very professional....if you want a service done nicely, she is most defnitely the one =)

Patty had my hair Japanese straightened which would have cost me hundreds of dollars at a salon. The Career Academy of Beauty worked on my long and knotted hair and now it is straight and manageable. This beauty school is the beezneez. A must if you're seeking excellent service for an inexpensive price!

Thank you!

Having the Career Academy of Beauty as a resources has been great! This beauty school helped my hair become soft, bouncy, and full of luster. Also, Delaney has helped me achieve the perfect hair color that has taken me years to discover. I am just flabbergasted that it has taken me this long to discover the mystery that is beauty schools. Why have I been spending thousands of dollar$ on high-end hair salons when I have my own personal glamor-army-team in my own backyard? An answer that is unbeknown to me.

THANK YOU CAofB!

Pros: Committed Students

.

I felt that I needed to defend this school against angry students current and former. This place, like any school, is what you make of it. What you need to realize is that the world gives you what you give it. Some students come in with the mind set to learn, be successful, and build a life from this career and when they leave hear they leave to be successful because they set themselves up for that. Others come in here, not knowing what to do in life, no clue, no direction and no will to learn. Some open up to learning others use there time playing with they??re own hair, makeup, phones and sometimes drugs. They leave with what they gave?Nothing. I read these reviews and I observe some of the points said in each of them. Point one- Bugs. A constant rule trying to be enforced is always eating on the clinic floor. Students who don??t care, don??t listen and continue breaking this rule. The bugs go away when the food rule is followed. Those who care about the school and realize food does not belong in the learning environment don??t eat where theyre not supposed to. Pont 2- The Sweatshop. I hear this all the time from those who do not enjoy what they do. I only hear that phrase when the student lacks the ability to perform services on the client. The reason the same people get all the ??good? services is because they give positive attitude and in return the receive likeable services. Those who get the more time consuming or unlikeable services such as perms don??t put in the effort to come to school on time, be respectful to rules or just have crappy attitudes. Point 3- Staff. I have never had instructors care and here they do. They care about those who follow rules and instruction, they care about those who put in the effort to learn, they put more time into the so called Favorites because they come to school in uniform, they don??t eat when and where they please, they don??t constantly have their cell phone in hand and they're always willing to learn no matter who the client is and how many clients they??ve taken that day. Everynew client is a new experience Point 4: Fliers for good reviews. This is how business' get reviews, from students who are actually happy to be heading into this career and people who care about a great education. It is a way to encourage people to speak out in a positive way. Because of the few reviews that are negative there are 10 times more positive. As for calling Martha a tweaker you really should learn a little from that woman. She has nothing to hide, and no reason to steal money. She is the retail manager and buyer for the school she needs to take money from he register to cover school supplies when the owners are not there. to write a check. She will openly tell you about her life as a and her battles.and if you took the time to talk to her and listen to her you would know she lives a sober life and only works and lives for her daughter.
I just felt that a lot of the negativity from the other reviews were reactions from angry students who got caught doing stupid crap and instead of solving the problem within themselves they retaliate with hatred towards a school that is only doing something good for them.
when a teacher doesn't say or do something to teach you a lesson that's when you want to be worried because thats when the teacher has given up on you, and thats not the place you want to be.

I felt that I needed to defend this school against angry students current and former. This place, like any school, is what you make of it. What you need to realize is that the world gives you what you give it. Some students come in with the mind set to learn, be successful, and build a life from this career and when they leave hear they leave to be successful because they set themselves up for that. Others come in here, not knowing what to do in life, no clue, no direction and no will to learn. Some open up to learning others use there time playing with they??re own hair, makeup, phones and sometimes drugs. They leave with what they gave?Nothing. I read these reviews and I observe some of the points said in each of them. Point one- Bugs. A constant rule trying to be enforced is always eating on the clinic floor. Students who don??t care, don??t listen and continue breaking this rule. The bugs go away when the food rule is followed. Those who care about the school and realize food does not belong in the learning environment don??t eat where theyre not supposed to. Pont 2- The Sweatshop. I hear this all the time from those who do not enjoy what they do. I only hear that phrase when the student lacks the ability to perform services on the client. The reason the same people get all the ??good? services is because they give positive attitude and in return the receive likeable services.

as a former student of career academy i feel that i need to explain how this school works. although the freshmen program (where you spend your first few months in the school) is amazing and ms. cyndee is an amazing teacher along with the floor instructors mr.alfred , mr. perez, ms. mariah and ms. tina, the rest of the staff is incredibly rude, unprofessional, immature, and seem to make themselves feel better by undermining the other staff and students. on a few occasions ms kathy blatantly disrespected me in front of a client or made me cry in the office (which has glass windows allowing everyone to see in) while clients and other students watched. they dont care nor do they understand when someone id having issues outside of the school and cannot focus only on the school. many students refer to the school as a 'sweatshop' or 'hell' because of the amount of stress put upon us to not only preform above and beyond state board protocol but to the administrations own personal standards that is extremely difficult to meet even for those about to graduate and the fact that we only earn what the clients decide to tip us (2-5 dollars on avarge). for some reason they dont understand that we are STUDENTS!! we are LEARNING!!!! yet the expect us to be able to preform at levels that only those who have been in the business for years can achieve. also, ms dayna and ms kathy tend to favor some students over others, giving them warning instead of write ups (the schools disciplinary actions) or having one student call another to warn them that they're going to be dropped while not giving another student any warning (not even a note sent to the house) untill said student comes in to the school . also, students do tend to make mistakes, while with some students theyll let these mistakes slide with others they not only take disiplenary action but they also personally attack the student and have a tendency to do so infront of patrons of the school.
the front desk that assigns the students clients and procedures also plays the favorites game and will give the students they like the more challenging and widely seen in salon procedures while the rest are stuck doing roller sets, perms, and haircuts. also, ms martha is will get upset and report you to an administrator if you say no to a client even if you have just finished a client, if you haven't taken a break, or if you've been overbooked and just found the time for lunch.
and that brings me to my next point, the break room is disgusting, because of the general lack of respect from many of the students (some high school, some in their 30's and up) the school has had cockroaches, flies, and other bug problems (not to mention the gnats outside that swarm the trash can by the benches). the break room is also often filthy and covered in food, trash, or students trying to keep from getting clients. the bathrooms arent much better.
the clients are often sweet but tend to be over the age of 60, some cant even walk. and not all the clientel is sweet, i personally have been yelled at, harassed and on one occasion pinched very hard by a client.

as far as the students, all i have to say is that if you're considering attending career academy still, ask yourself: did i enjoy the social aspect of high school? did i enjoy the cattiness, cliques, romuors, and lack of privacy?if so, you'll love CAofB. also, make sure you put your name on all of your stuff, things have a tendency to get stolen by students.oh, and for a few months (even now) theyre are fliers around the school telling students to go onto this website and write good reviews for the school to recive a free personal service (that means they get a facial/manicure/haircut etc for free from the school) so be wary of these reviews, im sure plenty are students pretending to be clients.
oh and as far as service, unless you're lucky enough to get someone ready to graduate, you're gunna get what you pay for, and CAofB has some pretty cheap prices.....

I am very happy with the services I get from CAofB. I been going there for about a year now. I can call at the last minute and get an appt right away, which helps with the busy schedule I have. Shyla Wilkerson is hard devoted student, always trying to make her customers happy with doing exactly what the customers want done. I would definately ask for her when you stop in! :)

I went to this school for a weave and a cut, and usually am very picky about who touches my hair, but a coworker or mine insisted that she wanted to do my hair...so with reluctance I went...and with great surprise walked out with a great overall color instead of highlights which would have damaged my already paperthin hair, and a very age appropriate haricut...my student stylist is Marie and she showed great professionalism as well as the ability to keep her clients entertained and happy. 5 gold stars for my nite favorite student...will definitely recommend Marie to friends and family.

I have been going to Career Academy of Beauty for about 10 years now. I started going there because of the high standards in hygiene. First nails, then facials and then hair. I have had almost every kind of service at this beauty school and now take my teenage daughter. I always recommend it. All the students that have given me services there are really good at what they do and are always nice and friendly - especially Martha and Michelle (who work at the front desk). I have had such great hair cuts and highlight services that people have asked me where I get me hair done. My daughter just had a Brazilian Blowout Hair treatment. It looks fabulous and feels great. Mandy and Lorena did a great job. I'm having it done on my hair next week with the same ladies. On top of it all - the services at the school are very affordable! I highly recommend this school as a salon.

After losing my job and searching multiple schools that did not help me one bit, I was beginning to feel a bit hopeless. My friend recommended giving CAofB a shot, so I immediately set up my appointment to check out the school. After a brief meeting and tour, I was starting to think maybe something good could actually come out of this. Im 21 years old with no job, no parental assistance, no credit, and CAofB made it work for me. I have now been enrolled for almost a month, and I have never been so happy and proud of myself before. CAofB really works with your schedule, and offer a few different schedules to fit the needs of practically anyone. The prices are extremely reasonable, and the staff go out of their way to assist you and make it happen. Without CAofB, I honestly do not know where I would be right now. I am so thankful to have found the school and some really great friends as well!

I love getting a facial I can afford! Student Dae loves what she does, you can feel her passion during the treatment. Her night instructor Ms Christina is wonderful and she cares about each client and student.

On the hair side of things Ms Kathy and Ms Tina have years of experience to share with their students when it comes to consultations. Mr Perez enjoys his work and takes interest in his students progress. I get my hair highlights done here and have never been disappoint, my weekly trip is for a shampoo and style, I feel fresh for the weekend.

Student Janet really knows how to straighten with a nice back comb to fluff up my heavy hair. Natalie takes over on days I want lots of curls and when I need a mood change I ask for Molly, she has a great positive attitude.

Bottom line, I love this place! I can afford to change my look and feel better on a weekly basis!
