WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE TO BE A STUDENT AT THE LIA SCHORR INSTITUTE.\r
\r
I AM AT THE PRESENT TIME A STUDENT AT THE LIA SCHORR INSTITUTE.\r
I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING BEFORE I REGISTERED TO THE SCHOOL FOR OVER A YEAR FOR A GOOD COMFORTABLE, KNOWLEDGEABLE SCHOOL. \r
MY FAMILY COMES FROM THE MEDICAL SIDE OF THE WORLD. THEYRE VERY PICKY AND JUDGMENTAL ABOUT MY CHOICES IN LIFE.\r
SOME OF MY CLOSE FRIENDS HAVE GRADUATED FROM THE LIA SCHORR INSTITUTE AND TO MY SURPRISE THEY FOUND JOBS IN THE BEST SPAS IN NEW YORK AND I SUSPECT THAT IT IS BECAUSE THEY GRADUATED FROM THIS WONDERFUL SCHOOL.\r
SOME HOW I CONVINCED MY PARENTS THAT IT WAS THE DIRECTION THAT I WANTED TO GO. I WENT FOR A TOUR AT THE INSTITUTE I WAS SURPRISED AND PLEASED TO MEET THE LEGENDARY HER SELF LIA SCHORR. SHE IS INCREDIBLE AND I WAS IMMEDIATELY IMPRESSED. SHE WAS SMART EDUCATED AND SABBY AND HAS INTEGRITY AND BELIEVES IN HER DELIVERANCE. \r
BEING THAT I WAS IMMEDIATELY CONVINCED THAT I CHOOSE THE RIGHT PATH, I SIGNED UP THAT NEXT MONTH. THE CLASSES ARE SMALL AND THE TEACHERS ARE INCREDIBLE THE ATMOSPHERE IS WARM. I MADE SOME GOOD FRIENDS, IM LEARNING A LOT AND IM GLAD I CHOOSE THIS INDUSTRY. IM SO EXCITED TO BE HERE AS A STUDENT AND PROUD TO BE A PART OF THIS INSTITUTE. LIA HER SELF IS VERY INSPIRING INDIVIDUAL. SHE IS A GREAT ROLE MODEL TO ALL OF US. SHE MOTIVATES THE STUDENTS AND ALWAYS MAKES SURE THAT WE ARE STUDYING AND UNDERSTANDING THE MATERIAL. I WAS ALREADY OFFERED A JOB AT BLISS AND IM SO ECSTATIC I CANT WAIT TO START TO WORK. \r
I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE THAT IS LOOKING INTO THIS INDUSTRY.\r
IM GRATEFUL TO MY FRIEND THAT RECOMMENDED THIS INCREDIBLE INSTITUTE. \r

First off, as a Lia Schorr graduate let me just say that most of the instructors at Lia Schorrs school are knowledgable and excellent at what they do. Especially the make up instructors like Heidi. Lia may be a skin care expert and a force in the 90s but now she is just a bitter old woman with no people skills. Some amazing instructors come and go, leaving only because of Lias bad attitude. She is rude to say the least.
She asks students and her spa employees to go to websites like this and leave good reviews. She lacks ethics and would probably sell her soul for cash in hand. One of my friends, a fellow student, approached Lia with 1500 dollars cash in exchange for hours and she agreed without hesitation. She is shameless.
Most of the magnifying lamps are broken, and filthy. The school is not equipped with enough supplies for all the students. There isnt enough classroom space and the products are disgusting. The message oil, which is the same she uses on clients, is like putting crisco on your face. She will discourage you from bringing your own products even though hers will clog your pores. Consider that as a student you will be getting a facial at least 3 times a week if you are full time, i would suggest bringing your own products and being as discreet as possible.
The flexibility of this school is a joke, students just come and go as they please. The exams are the same ones students were taking ten years ago, so a lot of students would cheat. Which is pretty pointless, Thats not going to fly once you take your state board exam. Certain instructors are constantly late and on their phones during class. Lia will storm into the classroom and interrupt your lesson for something ridiculous. It wastes your time and your education.
This school may be the least expensive of the three schools but i think doing some research is well worth your time. You will learn what you need to learn here, but you just need to stay focused and not let Lia take advantage of your loan money or the cash out of your pocket. Get and keep all your receipts and use caution when doing business with snakes.

Ever since I was a little girl I liked putting makeup on myself and all of my friends and making formulations up for my skin. Both of my parents are lawyers and always stressed to me through my whole upbringing the importance of education so I always knew college would be my first step towards a financially secure future. After high school I enrolled in a private college for a degree in law but after my first 4 years I decided that maybe that wasnt the best area for me. I knew I always liked putting together formulations for skin so my friend told me about the esthetic school of The\r
Lia Schorr Institute where she went and raved about the owner and how knowledgeable she was and her long time experience in the skin care industry. I went to visit the school was so impressed and inspired by Lia and her knowledge that I enrolled that day. I am now a graduate of The Lia schorr Skin Care Institute and am currently working with a dermatologist and love it! I cant express enough about my new journey and how it has changed my life. I am honored to have been a part of such an incredible institute and I thank the founder and her staff for making me feel the way I do today.\r

I HAVE BEEN IN THE CORPORATE WORLD FOR OVER 20 YEARS, IN FINANCE. MY SCHEDULE WAS ALWAYS HECTIC. MY TWO CHILDREN WERE NEGLECTED BY MY WORKLOAD THE CORPORATE WORLD APPLIED ON ME. MY MARRIAGE FELL APART. I WENT THROUGH A HARD TIME MAKING A DECISION CONTEMPLATING WHICH DIRECTION I SHOULD GO. I REMEMBER MYSELF BEFORE I WENT TO COLLEGE HAVING AN URGE TO GO TO A BEAUTY SCHOOL FOR SKINCARE BUT MY PARENTS DID NOT APPROVE AND BEING THAT I WAS A CHILD I OBEYED THEM AND WENT OFF TO COLLEGE. I HAD A GOOD RIDE IN MY CORPORATE WORLD BUT AS MY CHILDREN WERE BORN IT AFFECTED A LOT OF THINGS AND I HAD WISHED I DID NOT GO IN THIS DIRECTION. I HAVE HEARD OF THE LIA SCHORR INSTITUTE FOR A LONG TIME AND I DECIDED OUT OF CURIOUSITY TO GO AND SEE THE SCHOOL. I WAS SURPRISED WHEN MY MEETING WAS WITH THE OWNER, LIA SCHORR HERSELF. SHE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, PERSONABLE, ACCOMMODATING, INFORMATIVE, AND WHAT A LEGEACY OF EXPERIENCE. I WAS SO IMPRESSED, I IMMEDIATELY REGISTERED FOR THE 600 HOUR CURRICULUM. IT TOOK ME 6 MONTHS TO COMPLETE THE PROGRAM. I PAID THROUGH FINANCIAL AID AND STUDENT LOANS. THE CLASSES WERE SMALL NO MORE THAN 9 PEOPLE. THE TEACHERS WERE INCREDIBLE, EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, KIND, AND PROFESSIONAL. I MET GREAT PEOPLE THAT BECAME MY BEST FRIENDS. I HAVE OBSERVED LIA SCHORR MANAGING THE SCHOOL, WHAT A GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR THE STUDENTS. SHE ALWAYS HANDS-ON WITH THE STUDENTS WITH FULL MOTIVATION, THE STUDENTS JUST LOVE HER. THE SCHOOL HAS A GREAT HARMONY, AURA, AND ATMOSPHERE. I FINISHED MY SCHOOL AND IMMEDIATELY I GOT A JOB WITH A DERMATOLOGIST. LIA SCHORR'S REPUTATION SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. THEY WERE 5 OTHER STUDENTS FROM OTHER SCHOOLS WHO APPLIED FOR THIS POSITION BUT THEY PREFERRED THE LIA SCHORR TECHNIQUE AND KNOWLEDGE. I AM SO GRATEFUL TO THE LADY HERSELF AND WHAT SHE STANDS FOR AND HOW MUCH THIS SCHOOL GIVES TO EACH STUDENT. IT GIVES THE STUDENT'S GREAT APPRECIATION TO THE INDUSTRY AND TEACHES US TO LOVE IT. WHEN MY TWO DAUGHTERS WILL GROW UP I WILL DEFINITELY BRING THEM TO THIS SCHOOL TO ENJOY THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE THAT I HAVE GAINED.

Terrible experience. Lia schorr is a horrible business owner. She runs the place so poorly. Walks in on clients without knocking on the door and cheats clients from left to right. The massage time that is supposed to be 50 minutes, ends up being 30 minutes. She is a scam artist that rips people off and very unprofessional. Better throw your money elsewhere. She will get complaints from the health department and consumer affairs for humiliating people...

I have always wanted to come to The Lia Schorr Day Spa. I had heard so many recommendations about the legacy of this spa that has been around for a long time. Lia Schorr is considered to be a diva in the skin care industry and since she also specializes in men's skin care I convinced my boyfriend to come with me. We arrived saturday morning and were welcomed by her staff who were very professional & warm to us. I have been having facials for many years but I was loyal to my facialist however when my facialist retired I knew that I would come to this spa that I have been hearing about for many years. Lia schorr's staff are AMAZINGLY KNOWLEDGEABLE & EXPERIENCED!! I truly enjoyed my experience. I loved the relaxing music, the tasty dried apricots and the lemon water was very refreshing on such a hot day. My skin felt amazing it was glowing, felt very soft and more youthful. I have the highest respect to the woman behind this magic.

I bought a coupon and it's just impossible to get an appointment, next one June! If it was just that I wouldn't mind waiting but every time I call I have the most painful experience. When you go to a spa you don't expect to be insulted!
I will probably forget about my voucher since as for now I don't have the courage to go. It's probably less painful to lose 80$ than go and be treated like sh...

I have been in the fashion industry for over 20 years. Due to the recession and the decline in the economy, layoffs and foreclosures it was a real wake up call for me. Its amazing how one minute you can have a great job, home & family and the next minute you have lost some or all of that life without warning. Even when it doesnt happen directly to you it can still make you feel so insecure with so many people around you that are losing their jobs. The company I work for has about 50 employees and each year approx 8 people get laid with no new hiring. Being that I am older more sensible and wiser I started to look around me to see what professions were still growing despite the economy with barely any layoffs and I realized the spa & skin care industry was still growing even though we were in a recession. I decided to start looking around at the schools that offer the esthetics skin care licensing program that entitles you to become a skin care expert and makeup artist. I finally settled on the Lia Schorr Institute of Cosmetic Training because when I went to tour the school they really made me feel welcome and such great flexibility in the schedules unlike some of the other schools had set days and times but I needed something that helped me to work around my work schedule & the everyday busy life of my family. I am so glad I chose this institute it was such a wonderful, magical experience. They have such a high education system, all the professors were extremely knowledgeable and didnt treat us like we were just students they made us all feel important and like a family. I have learned so much in such a short time I never would have thought before this program that there is so much to learn about the science of skin care. We learned the science of the skin, product ingredient, client communication, business management, and so much more. The inspirational Lia Schorr herself is a very charismatic, knowledgeable, hard working, good hearted individual. We all look up to her and are so inspired by her achievements and work ethics she is one of the best role models I have ever met and we are all very lucky to be a part of this special school.

I am a current Esthetics Student and finishing up my hours. While I am excited to graduate and take what I have learned and begin this journey that I have long awaited, and now finally feel confident that I can, the experience, the skills/tools, and the overall knowledge and education that I have recieved is uncanny. I actually started off at the Aveda Institute but felt that I was just another body and wanted a more individual experience. I started at Lia Schorr Institute and instantly felt a connection. After my first class I knew that this is where I was meant to study. The instructors were phenominal and explained things in a manner that was so easy to understand. I feel that after every class, I am able to take what I have learned and apply it to the real world, rather than just memorize it.

I am not an American, I am from Paris, France where I studied makeup artistry and have done very well in france. My husband was transferred about 1 yr ago to New York so I decided to further my knowledge myself in the industry by taking the esthetic license course. A few of my friends in Paris had told me about the Lia Schorr Institute. When I went to the school to visit and check it out I was impressed with the dynamo lady who runs the place. The student that I spoke with raved about the Institute & the high standard of education this school provides. The teachers who have been there over 10 yrs told me that Lia herself had trained them. They are very lucky to gain such knowledge from a woman that has such legacy in the industry. I highly reccommend this Institution and will tell all my friends in Paris to come here as well.

5 Years I had very bad skin so I went to The Lia Schorr Day Spa for a facial. The facialist I had was the best and I have had many facials in the past and they never really helped my skin problem, but after a few visits to my facialist at Lia Schorr my face was finally cleared up. I was truly amazed & impressed. Thats when I decided that I wanted to help people that had my problem and changed my career. My facialist at the Lia Schorr Day Spa was so knowledgeable and caring. She had told me she was a graduate of the lia schorr institute herself many years ago and emphasized on how Lia has been a great role model and learned the best skills from her as far as education & business skills and her individuality. I decided that was the school I wanted . That was one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Lia was one of the most caring, knowledgeable person I have ever met and truly value her knowledge and advice. These reviews that I have read about her from other students are outrageous! these people just want to run the school the way they want to but there are rules & regulations that need to be followed. These are truly people that have conflicts on what it takes to run a business. Lia was a kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable principle. she is a very straight forward woman but that is a genuine quality in a person and some people can misinterpret that so I suggest no one take these bad reviews seriously.

Ok whoever are the graduates writing nice things, please spare everyone the bulls@#$ because we all know who Lia Schorr really is. She one of the most impolite, cold hearted ""female dog"" I have ever met in my life. She treats the students like s^&*! There's no student lounge, nowhere to eat, no water. Recently the elevator can be taken and we can eat due to the high volume of complaints from the students. If I could I would have gone to Aveda. They recently got financial aid so if anyone out there is looking for professionalism, the best, and someone who acutally gives a sh&$ about you, don't attend Lia Schorr. It is by far the worse esthetic schools out there and all these reviews are phony as hell. Trust me. I fought with her plenty of times..

When I first decided to become an Esthetician, I came across many different schools but Lia Schorr was the one that greatly attracted me. The flexibility they give you to make your schedule is extremely helpful. It aloud me to finish the course at a pace that was right for me. The teachers are very knowledgeable, and helpful. Great school! :)

I graduated 6 months ago and now work as a facilaist for Bliss Spa. I had many offers and for the 1st time in my life it was my choice. I knew how well respected the Lia Schorr Institute was but amazed and how it really gave me a huge step up in the job process. The school really gave me the knowledge, confidence, and experience that I needed to be successful in this industry. Some of my friends had went to other schools and actually left and came to Lia Schorr Institute. I loved going to class every day. From the teacher, to the lessons, to the training, it was impeccable. I had never felt more confident in my life that I was not only being trained my real and talented professionals, but that I had learned and gained all there was to know about being one of the best in this competitive world.

I have been in the corporate world for over 15 years. I am 30 years old,and have decided to change my profession to become a skincare expert. \r

I remembered The Lia Schorr Institute back from when I graduated high school. It has always been the top establishment for skincare,esthetics,makeup, massage,and of course the Institute. The school is one of the only schools of its caliber to offer student loans as well as financial aid. \r

I had the honor of meeting Lia herself back when I went to learn about the school and register. I must tell you that I was so impressed with her straight forward style and solid knowledge about everything skincare related. Sounds silly,but this woman is a walking encyclopedia. She is also a pioneer of the industry and it was an honor to be one of her mentees. I was so impressed with the school, the professors, the professionalism of the staff that I signed up that day.\r
\r
I want to stress that you are not a number here. Each student gets personal attention, career counseling, if you are having trouble with something,you are helped....things like this do not go on in other schools.\r
\r
I recently graduated and found a job doing what I love.\r
\r
I never do these reviews, but wanted to take this opportunity to publicly compliment the institute on the high standard that they hold and the environment that they insist we keep. If not, I would never have gotten my job.\r
\r
I feel very lucky to have chosen this school and know that I will continue to go far in this industry. THANK YOU LIA SCHORR FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!! \r
\r
I have looked at some of these other reviews, and I can only say that maybe these students were not serious about their education.\r

Pros: Top Staff,Financial Aid,NYS Acredited

.

I was a student of Lia Schorr Institute and frankly I'm embarrassed to have her name stamped to my resume. Lia acts like an angel until you sign the paper work. She's loud, rude, very pushy and is only concern about how much money she can get from you. If you decided to choose this school, then focus entirely on your education.Try to ignore the rude countless interruptions from Lia during your classes. Equipment was either worn, broken and/or filthy. I wasn't taught to use certain facial equipment because it had been broken for months! Classes never started on time, advanced courses will not be given to you unless you recruit several others to take it with you. Lia could care less about your education. And from what I hear it just getting worse. If you can afford to get your education elsewhere I strongly advise you do. Aveda New York now accepts financial aid. Good Luck!

Pros: Financial aid is accepted

Cons: Horrible and stressful

.

Lia's masseuses consistently provide excellent massages at very, very reasonable cost. I buy books of 10 or 20 at a time, and they are great. Very upscale spa, lots of other facilities and offerings.

I have been coming to Lia Schorr for the past 12 years. It's lovely inside-quite and clean. Lia has always made me feel welcomed. Even when I call at the last minute for a facial, and I often do, she always finds time for me and I don't mind waiting 10-15 minutes because I know it's worth it.

I only see Eugenia and she is the best. She knows my skin, knows what to do with it and makes sure my sensitive skin is well taken care of. She also has been taking care of my older daughter's skin with great results.

I highly recommend going to Lia Schorr-you won't be sorry.

Pros: They get the job done

.

When it comes to handling acneic skin Lia schorr has the best facialist in Manhattan. A year ago I started getting acne, at 34 years old I was mortified. I had gone to at least 5 different facialists on Long Island before someone mentioned Lia Schorr Day spa and recommended Ala. So of course i was willing to try anything to get rid of this problem and for the past 6 months Ala has been working with me on a monthly basis. Between the facials with extractions (which is key), along with the different treatments she uses on my face, like masks, spot treatments and different electrical machines my face has been spot free for the last 2 months. ala really is an amazing facialist and I am extremely satisfied with my results!!!!!!
The ambiance of the spa has a very European feel to it which is great especially in a city where most spas appear so luxurious but can't even get the job done!!!

Pros: Best facials in the city

.

I have recently graduated from the Lia Schoor Institute and wanted to express how my experience has impacted me. On my search for an esthetics school I landed upon this one and, after speaking to Lia, I knew right away that this was the best choice hands down. I moved from Ohio to New Jersey in December specifically to come to this school. Not only did I really get a great first impression of Lia, all the instructors, and staff but this institute most definitely has the best qualities. By qualities I mean the avaliability of flexible hours and financial aid which was very important to me. Also I'm pretty sure the Lia Schorr institute is the only school that offers financial aid in the city. The whole staff really cares about your situations are willing to work with you on any problem. I feel like my classmates are like family and never expected to make such close friendships. This school is one of a kind I will never forget my experience for as long as I live. I would suggest this school to anyone and everyone. I am very confident to go out into the working field because I have learned so much. More than I had ever expect to learn. Thanks Lia Schorr Institute for such a wonderful experience!

Pros: Great teachers, great owner, great atmosphere

Cons: The fact that I had to leave

.

I am currently a student at Lia Schorr beauty Institute and I wanted to share my experience with anyone looking to become an esthetician. \r
\r
I am a mother of 2 small children. They are now in school full-time and I am able to pursue a career once again. I have always loved beauty and skin and thought this would be a great field for me to go into. My only stumbling block was how could I juggle school and still be home for my children as they needed me. Well, after much research for a school that would fit my needs I found Lia Schorr. I met with Lia herself when I came to see the school and I was immediately impressed. What a strong accomplished woman! She quickly related to my situation, being a single mom and also needing to find a career. She was a wealth of comfort, knowledge and support. While Lias school may not be as new or fancy as some of the other schools I visited, her school had a sense of warmth and family that none of the others seemed to offer. This is just what I needed. I met with a couple of the teachers who only cemented the warmth and sense of family I felt upon meeting Lia. \r
\r
You cant help but be impressed with the wide range of knowledge that the teachers possess and the caring patient way in which they present it to the students. Yes this was the school for me. Not only did I already like the staff and instructors but they offered me something that none of the other schools couldflexible scheduling. Now I could pursue my career path and still be the mother that I want to be for my children. I am able to attend part-time days so I can be with my kids after school. That is amazing! Just a foot note, Lia Schorr was also the only school that offers Financial Aid and government loans which really are a help in these tough economic times. . Need I say more?\r
\r
I would highly recommend this school for anyone who wants to be an esthetician. What a great experience! Thank you Lia.\r

Pros: Flexible Scheduling and Financial Assistance.

Cons: None that I can see.

I have been a student at the Lia Schorr Institute for the past year as a Make-up student. Through the year I received certifications in:

Basic Make-up
Bridal Make-up
Air Brush
Paramedical
Fashion Editorial Make-up
Advanced Make-up

The majority of my classes were instructed by Heidi Reid and I also had JSterling as an instructor for a few of the classes.
I have nothing but great things to say about the school, the teachers, the classes, and Lia Schorr herself..who actually comes into the classes to meet and thank her students!!
Also, as a side note, the Lia Schorr spa also gives the best facials!

When I decided to go to school for Make-up I researched 6 different schools in both New York and New Jersey, and Lia Schorr was by far the best choice for me. The school is affordable, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly during the tour of the school, and the variety of classes was by far the most expansive and interesting. I was also impressed by their flexible class schedule. By the end of the first day of my first class (with Heidi Reid) it was obvious the talent and knowledge of the teachers and staff would greatly benefit me. Their passion for the industry and their students success was like nothing I had ever seen, and it was such a refreshing and exciting experience. The class set up, structure, and curriculum helped me to build confidence and prepare me for a job as a make-up artist. I highly recommend Lia Schorr Institute.

Pros: the teachers, the classes, the facials....

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

All I can say is, ?It changed my life?And from what I could see, many other peoples? lives as well.? Lia Schorr is more than just a school- it is a journey where you learn so much about yourself while learning how to help others as well. And you can take what you learn there into so many different directions. And even if you NEVER use your license you have just learned how to take care of YOUR OWN SELF for the rest of your life. \r
\r
Lia?s school inspired me in so many ways and it helped me figure out some of my own health and skin concerns. It has made me better my life? Lia has created a school that can be molded into anyone?s schedule and she as well as her committed staff is always there helping you, supporting you, and inspiring you to be better than you were when you first walked thru her door. \r

I was a student at the Lia Schorr Institute located in midtown new york. My background was in the medical field as a nurse, but I wanted to pursue my passion for skin by becoming an esthetician.\r
I visited other schools , but I chose the Lia Schorr Institute. I was impressed that the owner was so involved on a daily basis with the students and the Institute.It was a great environment, the teachers were very professional and it had a high standard of education. I learned a lot and I met great people while studying there.\r
Lia Schorr was compassionate,understanding and very professional. She is like a walking encyclopedia with amazing knowledge of skin.She treated her students as if they were part of her family.\r
Upon graduating I became an esthetician and now work with a dermatologist as a skin care specialist.. \r
I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to make a change in their life.

I was a victim i believe. I got sucked into the nice personality that people pretend to have here just to get your money. the owner Lia acts all nice saying she's your mentor and how grateful she is that you chose her school and overall she's a b****. excuse my bad language. I've been at the school for a 2 yrs bc i was doing alittle under 20hrs a week, but my experience at this school has not been pleasant. I feel like i have not learned anything that prepares me for state board. Every since i've been at this school she has nothing but harrassed me for money which was being funded by the state which completely out of your hands especially when its something like that you just have to wait. but she just threatens to kick you out or charge you more money just because she can. She disrespects people including the teachers thats why we always have problems keeping our teachers, literally. Its unbelievable how many new students she gets every month, she makes us lie to them and tell them all the good stuff which is nonsense she she can get her money and once they enroll they feel regret. Lia schorr also makes us lie when the board of education come to visit to see if she's running things well, she makes us say that she treats us good. and to top it off she makes the rooms we work in beautiful until they leave she even brings things up from her spa downstairs to make it seem like were in a spa setting.\r
Every student that attend this school uses their own products because her products are awful and are full of mineral oil that irritate your skin. and when people come to take a makeup course at her school she kicks us out of our on classrooms so they can have everything to themselves, its just a bunch of nonsense.
