I attended RBI for 2 months. And it cost me $6000+. Really?! I learned nothing. The two months I was in the school was classroom time and while I did receive a "kit" of generic supplies, it was woefully inadequate and I am thoroughly angry that I now have student loans to repay for the sum total of learning NOTHING! The teachers were very nice, but the administration was horrid and the hidden costs are ridiculous. If you don't finish on time... more money. If you miss too many days... more money. Get out while you can before it costs you more than money.

I just graduated from Regencys in Indpls, IN an I hate it an wish I had never started. I learned everything on my own, during my year there,I watched the campus go thru 8 educators!! That is plain ridiculous and alot of them were fresh out of school themselves or only in the field six months before becoming a educator. The other half are all old school and set in their learning ways an not up to date with the modern demand. The unexpected overages at the end also gets you and thats something you are not told about when you sign up like half the other crap that goes on there. They do not take any action on the students either when they are doing wrongful to another student or stealing. One girl graduated and had a problem with another girl attending the school too so the day of her graduation she and a huge group of people (including huge men) stood outside an waited for this ONE girl to come out so they could jump her!! I could not believe it an to make it worse they followed her with roadrage for about 15miles, bumping her car with their different vehicles, throwing stuff at her car, an etc. She called the cops as they were chasing her but they followed her to the gas station where she had to pull in cause her car started to smoke. So they sat there an circled her car for about 3minutes or so torrmenting her before driving off. Of course the police do not get ther for another four or five minutes an can not do anything about it since they did not witness it and the video didnt show plate numbers. Long story made short her engine blew up an she lived over a hour away so was unable to come back to school because of that an all the school did was send the other girl a letter telling her to not come up to the school anymore.....ummm what kind of crap is that!!!!! REGENCY IS HORRIBLE .....NEVER ATTEND IT OR BECOME A CLIENT THERE EVER!!!

I can't unstand how this school call themselves helping other. My son is a week from finishing this place and they come up with some overtime charges, He has a child that he must carry to the doctor at times and he himself may have been sick. They went crazy trying to help him get that loan almost 20,000 and now they want 1,000 for overtime fees. Please someone look into this. The school is in Spartanburg, SC and it's not the cleanest nor is the staff nice. I'm sure he will have to go else where to get the proper training. I will be calling the Better Business.

I was a walk in client - it was horrible! The instructors were rude to the clientele (me) and students that asked questions plus it was tacky and unclean facility. Keep driving if you feel the inclination to stop in - save your $$$, your time, and your hair!!

Ive attended this school for 5 months in Indiana. It didn't take long for me to realize I got scammed. I have learned so little!! This place has taken away my zeal to do this. Ive been in touch with the campus manager, advisors, and the regional manager. All have been highly interested in keeping me quiet and NOT fixing the problem. My stuff was stolen there ! They have cameras and told me they'd check the videos. They never did ... Or if they did , they didn't want to tell me. They don't educate you then they throw you on the floor to deal with customers. They wonder why most clients walk out of there very unhappy My anger lies in the fact this reflects poorly on the student who needs confidence to learn. I also feel sorry for people who walk into this place wanting services. The politics here are enough to make you want to curl into a ball and die. Double standards and powertripping are everyday realities here. If you are thinking about attending this school, please turn around and RUN!!!!!! Look at these reviews!!! The ones that are positive are from people that haven't gone there yet! That's how I used to be before regency sucked the passion out of me. Ask about their attendance policy, overtime fees and completion rates before you go here. I can't stand to think that 1 more person would get screwed here. That's why I wrote this. If you attend and agree please write something so others can see the truth and the scam will stop!!!!! I couldn't give this place 0 stars ... It wouldn't let me. In fact rate this school "1 blackhole"!

I have been going to Regency Beauty for years. I think that the instructors do not care about what the students are doing out on the floor. Everytime I go here, no one watches or helps the students. The instructors are only there to rip off the customers. They charge for all kinds of misc fees not told up front. When they screw up your hair you pay for it. I'm very unhappy after I get my hair colored by the students. I have had several instructors be mean to me for no reason at all. I have left here before and and my hair cut was not even on any of the sides. I had to come back and the instructor still did not check my hair before I left. The bleach turned my hair orange today. I was not offered even a glass of water today from the student. She messed my hair up and its orange but to fix it another 15.00 not told about until leaving. I would beware of this school. The woman instructors have major problems. They need to be replaced. They are mean people. They need to help the students and make the customers happy.

Please do not attend this place. It is the worst education ever. They have told us the only goal they have is to get us to pass state boards which they tech us very little about. They get you in quick and sign you up then you are stuck. I go to the Madison, WI campus and it is horrible. We are always out of everything. They don't care about anything but making money. They charge you crazy overtime fees. The average attendance is at 70% which would leave you with close to $3000 in overtime fees. DO NOT GO HERE! Look into MATC! Every student here hates it! The teachers could care less about teaching and instead are on powertrips worryign about the students meeting dresscode instead of wanting to teach. Every teacher at our campus is new. None of these teachers have previous teaching experience. This is their first time teaching and it shows. Run away! This is the most expensive mistake I have ever made!

I have been attending the RBI in N. Canton, Ohio. I'm going on my 6th week and I am so damn miserable there. I dread going in there. The instructors are so unprofessional. The head person that is suppose to be handling situations does nothing. I'm not learning a damn thing there. I am now trying to figure out how in the hell to get out of this place. RBI is definately NOT what they make themselves out to be. In between the drama with the instructors and their lack of knowlwedge ......this school sucks!!!!!!

This is my experience,

I have been attending this school for 2 months. I liked it all the way until I was in my second week.

After that I had a professor that talked to me like I was a puppy dog that did something bad. I would ask a question and get talked to like crap. I do not feel like this is right.

I hate the fact that this school makes an impression that they are holy than thou when they have a bunch of punks in this school. They allow students to pick on one another and they allow the instructors do the same.

I ask for help and get yelled at like I did something wrong. I have finally gotten to a point where I hated to get up in the morning to go. So, today was my end point I WITHDREW

If anyone has any sense they would never go to this school.

I attend the Winston Salem, NC campus and This School does not give you the education that they portray in the beginning and is ridiculously over priced. They send you home for ridiculous reasons in turn lowering your attendance so that they can charge you more money in the end. The Manager is never there and if you have any questions you have to call your "advisor" in Minnesota that is usually a rude female that also cant answer any of your questions. Save your time, money and sanity & go somewhere else

I am currently attending the Fayetteville, Arkansas RBI and I have to say this is the worst school. Let me elaborate, nothing is organized, the teachers have NEVER worked in a salon; they just got their license and went straight into teaching. We can't ever use real product to actually see what we're doing wrong that we need to expand our knowledge on. One of my teachers who is also the floor manager is the rudest lady I have ever met. The teachers make us feel small, stupid and really put a damper on our creativity; if we even get to bring that out (usually not). We as students are treated like children, I have been embarrassed in front of the entire class, clients and other teachers to the point where I am left in tears. Before I went to this school I really thought I wanted to do this and I would eat, sleep, and breathe cosmetology. Now I dread even getting out of the bed every morning knowing I have to waste my time in such a poorly run school. We're supposed to love what we're good at not completely loathe it. And I'm almost ashamed to finish this school and use it on any resume I will ever fill out. 17 grand for this? Waste of money. If anyone feels the way I do, just stick with it, some good has to come of it (hopefully).

I went to four beauty schools before coming to the decission to go to this school. The first one I went to was Mitsu Sato Hair Academy and it was dirty and the doors was falling off. The second and third school I went to was nice, but didn't offer part-time cosmetology. Finally i went to Regency Beauty Institute and was glad that they offer part-time schooling, even though It cost like 17,000 dollars........good lord I hope finicial aid can cover most of it.lol, but other then I hope that this school will teach me what I am looking for.

This place is a fukcing rip-off. I came in for class to be told all students have to help set up a modeling show (moving chairs, settting up signs, etc). We weren't even allowed to watch the show; we had to sit outside. $17,000 for this. This place is incredibly unprofessional. THey run out of supplies all teh time and provide us with brokes stuff.

Obviously, headquarters knows how poorly this school is run or they would not have visited 3 times in one year to clean up ongoing issues, which still go on.

I am currently a withdrawn student of the Independence, MO. campus, and I plan on returning Nov. 1st 2008, but my campus manager obviously can't get that correct or update my new home address either.
I sent a letter to her and the corporate headquarters in MN, 3 weeks ago, and I have yet to get a response or a return phone call.

This school is a major rip-off. Not only is it the most expensive school for a less than mediocre education, but it is also very unprofessional.

The campus I attended had more turn over's in educators and managers than I have ever seen in a 12 month period.

Not only that, the educators they hire are practically burn outs that couldn't survive in a typical salon environment, or they straight up just do not want to do their job. I am already in the industry on the wholesale side of things, and I wanted to get my license to expand my opportunities, but I am seeing I made a mistake by selecting this joke of a school.

They treat you like children, do not encourage creativity and delegate their time very unwisely. Some educators would rather buy make-up or chit chat with each other than teach. Not to mention they do not have enough educators on the floor with you.
Can you believe that it takes about 20 minutes just to get started on a client? Why you wonder? Because the educators are no where to be found when you need to do a consultation. Talk about some angry customers.

Not only that, but we had two educators laugh at a student because of a haircut she had done. That is not acceptable in a school environment in any form. They laughed at her in front of everyone including her client.

Oh and let me mention that nothing is ever in stock when you need to use it on a client. The wash bowls when I left had 3 out of 5 broken for over 2 months, the daytime students would never clean and sanitize the Pedi-thrones (state violation), and the marvacide is always dirty no matter what area of the school you are in.
This school is so unclean and unorganized. The educators know of this, and do absolutely nothing, except tell us to mind our own business. Why should I mind my own business when it comes to my health and the health of other students, and more importantly the health of the clients!!!! I got sick of cleaning up after other students really fast.

I kick myself for choosing this school and laugh that I have to return there, but I guess it beats Paris II in the area, but after my experience I would rate both schools on the same level of disappointing education. Regency just has an updated look and that's about it.

At Regency, you are not a student; you are treated as an employee. They would rather you work on your sales skills than your trade skills. Sell this, Sell that they always say. And, then when you ask for help on a client you are treated will total disrespect, and the educators make you feel as though you are putting them out.

I hate Regency and I am disgusted at what this company gets away with.

You have no idea how many unhappy students attend this campus in Independence.
The list of unethical treatment goes on and on. Oh and let me mention again how dirty this place is. Whatever you do, do not use the bathroom. Hold it until you get home.
Someone needs to contact State Board and get this place re-inspected. DIRTY! DIRTY! DIRTY!

I attended the Independence, MO Regency school and it was horrible! I was sick for a really long time and ended up in the hospital I turned in all my doctors notes and while I was in the hospital I had my mother call since I was in ICU and she talked to someone at the school. Since I missed 14 days they kicked me out even though they were notified. They said my mom never called and wouldn't talk to me any further.

This school also has the worst teachers. I had one teacher I loved and they let her go the rest would just make you sit there and do stamp work instead of teaching. More than half the time they weren't in the class room.

School is not worth the pay its just as ghetto as one of the cheap schools might as well go there.
