I am a recent graduate of Hair Dynamics and my experience there was a rather mixed one. I looked at both of the other schools in the area and neither could compete with the education at Hair Dynamics. I will start by saying that i definitely got what i paid for in terms of education. They are very up to date and good about teaching the newest trends in cutting, styling, perming, coloring, nail design, and skin care, while they continue to teach the oldie-but-goodies such as shampoo sets, facials, traditional perming etc... If you go through the skin and nail programs you also get certified in Microdermabrasion, Chemical Exfoliation, and Electric Filing. The educators are very passionate and talented for the most part, and are mostly willing to help. All of the equipment is nice and the student salon is very comfortable for being at a school. They have actual pedicure chairs which no other school in the area has and they have great products at fairly good prices but that's pretty much where the good stops. Most of the educators, (And trust me, I met ALL of them, even the new ones!) are very nice, helpful, and there to do their jobs. But then there are the others. The ones that say one thing but then do another, the ones who pick their favorites and make it known, the ones who dont like other students or educators and make that know by being unwilling to help. The one who is having an affair with a student but is still working there even though its a well known fact it is going on. The ones who give expensive salon equipment to special students because they feel they can. The ones who get fired because others dont like them, or worse the ones who get them fired because they dont like them. The ones that ignore the foul language and inappropriate topics in the student salon while clients are present because they would rather avoid the confrontation. You are not allowed to sit around and do nothing because they get angry, but if you have nothing to do and you try to practice the profession your studying by doing a style on your hair, changing your nail polish, or doing your makeup because it is considered a "student service" and your only allowed one a week. And if your are caught you get suspended, even if you've never gotten in trouble before. They are sticklers about dress code but when the flood hit they let one student come to school wearing jeans (which are strictly forbidden), while another who lost EVERYTHING came to school in jeans they sent her home and said dont come back until you have black pants. It didn't even matter that she came when she was going through such devastation, it was what she was wearing. Students who work their asses off dont get recognized very often, and the ones who buy teachers lunches, coffees, and just kiss up in general are always getting student of the month. It is a hard place to feel appreciated in unless you get on their good sides. All in all, if you can deal with heaps of drama, inappropriate conduct, talk, and actions, favoritism, and generally a lot of headaches to get a great education this is the place for you! Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for my education, but every single student in the school should be counting down to their graduation to feel accomplished, not just to get out of hell revamped and not have nothing to show for it, plus a $20,000 bill.

WOW...the previous review is VERY hard for me to understand...I can only assume that this "student" was very biased and most likely was venting alot of misplaced anger...what I mean is this...I am the parent of a soon to be graduate, and my daughter has been nothing but thrilled with the school as a whole, from the instructors and staff, to the classes and of course the clients and friends she has made at Hair Dynamics. As a parent, I feel that we made the BEST choice when we chose this school. We toured two others before deciding and we are so glad we went with Hair Dynamics. The classes are up to date, the school is very clean and attractive...I am very confident that she will have absolutely no problem passing the exam to obtain her license, as they make SURE the students are prepared to do so before they graduate...she has nothing but great things to say about her teachers and the rest of the staff and while she is very excited to graduate, I am sure she will be just a little sad to leave such great people behind...I do know that the experience you have is what you make of it and that they make sure that you will succeed...so like I said, I am not sure about the person who made such a miserable review, but please think twice before you believe such nonscence...and if you or a child of yours is considering going to beauty college, look into Hair Dynamics...no school could be around for so long if they weren't doing SOMETHING right...

this school is a joke. i have a hard time believing some of these reviews and would not be surprised if the staff wrote them themselves. they raped me of my money and dignity, not to mention wasting 2 years of my life. i am a current student, still waiting to graduate. i was supposed to graduate in may. first of all, you don't learn sh-t, and you spend more time doing busy work like smart notes than actually practicing anything. they have arbitrary clock in times, and if you are even one minute late, they will lock you out of the classroom and you won't get your education for the day. they spend more time paying attention to what students are wearing and whether or not it fits into their outdated and restrictive dress code than they do to how well you're doing in classes. they made me retake several classes, for absolutely no reason. they can't track anything accurately and i spent most of my time in the office trying to get them to fix things they did wrong, or get credit for something that was never tracked in the first place. they wouldn't let me into sr class on time because of this. for most of my time there i tried to keep my mouth shut and get through it without any confrontation, but eventually i was getting so screwed over i had to speak up. they were supposed to get the second half of my financial aid last June (2010) and never discussed it with me until February, at which point it took months to get anything done, and after all that effort and time, they decided not to give it to me at all because my attendance was no longer at 80%. at that point i still hadn't been given the time of day to discuss getting those credits that were never tracked. so when i finally started raising issues and demanding their attention, they took me out of the computer so i was no longer scheduled clients. then they have the nerve to make me write a suspension repeal letter! so i layed out over 8 typed pages, a complete list of all the f-ck ups they made. no one took the time to discuss any of my issues. now that i'm about to graduate, even though ive finished all my credits already and have 5 saturdays i have to make up, they're still making me go an extra 30 hours, again for no reason. keep in mind, i've had a job waiting for me for months, and whenever i try to explain to them that they are just holding me back, they get defensive and childish. for example, last friday i was talking to denise, the DIRECTOR, and she called me "poison in her school" in front of two other staff members, who just sat there and sided with her instead of speaking up and supporting me. her reason for saying this? because she supposedly knows everything that goes on and heres me 'poisoning' other students attitudes. if she really knew what was going on, she would know that these students are just as frustrated with their ignorance and apathy as i am (many of these girls aren't getting their disbursements on time), and that they often start the conversation. i am usually trying to warn them of potential problems that might arise and how to avoid them so they don't have to go through the hell the put me through. they are completely disrespectful. also, the place is full of drama. and the educators are worse than the students. not to mention someone is shorting us on tips! its really just kind of pathetic.

I am a current student at Hair Dynamics and I couldn't ask for a better education. All the instructors are very knowledgeable and go above and beyond to help you. Classes are educational and entertaining! The experience of actually being in the salon and getting your own clients, is pretty awesome. You meet so many different kinds of people, and learn how to connect with different personalities. We are tought to be respectful and professional. I started school at HD almost a year ago, and so far it has been one of the best experiences of my life. My time at HD makes me SUPER excited to make cosmoteology a career for myself. I'm even more passionate about it now than I was when i started school. Hair Dynamics is a school for someone that is REALLY passionate about hair, skin, and nails and someone who really wants to make a life by doing something in cosmetology.They give you the tools AND the confidence to succeed after you graduate. This school is amazing!

I've written two reviews which have both been flagged or erased, but I feel so strongly about my experience that I'm writing ANOTHER one out of stubborn righteousness if nothing else.

1. I finished the skin program and am still without a job in the field
two years later. There was basically no help from the school in relation to finding jobs except for an outdated 'job board' and a watered down job fair that mostly catered to hair students.

2. The teachers taught straight from the book. They didn't seem to have much practical experience (in skin at least, and with all due respect the hair program seems much more refined and quality...) When we 'graduated' to basics and were 'on the floor' we were left completely alone. No more training, no teachers to guide us, nothing. The education was antiquated--I could honestly learn as much on YouTube, or the internet by teaching myself.

3. I had to beg friends and family to come pay for services to fulfill my hours, and only had a few 'walk in' clients.

4. The facilities are sadly dilapidated, though the owner did recently re-do a treatment room that had 2 beds (split between 8 plus students) 'State of the Art ' Hair Dynamics aint.

What the teachers and owners DO NOT tell you is that you will have to work for a few years to gain a clientele until you can rely on the trade as a career--most girls I know still have to rely upon second jobs before they can make a living in aesthetics. It's common now for trade schools to be overwhelmed with students in a poor economic climate, but the fact remains that I'm STILL working the same entry level job that I was when I enrolled, except that now I've got a bulky student loan staring at me every month, reminding me of my disappointing experience at Hair Dynamics.

This school is an absolute joke. They rarely have anything straight, and are highly unorganized. They will tell you one thing and do the complete opposite. If you want an education that will help in your career choice then good luck. The student to teacher ratio is horrible. If you have a question it will take you forever to get an answer, and it will come with attitude because you just disturbed someone during their gossip time. If you want your business broadcasted, are not oriental, like being in complete chaos, and being thrown into a sea of people without having a clue as to whats going on this is the school for you. The owners supposedly make all the decisions but will never talk to you one on one, they have their minions do it for them, yet all they do is complain about how they are clueless. If you are going to drop that kind of money for an education, then I highly suggest you do it elsewhere. Looks are very decieving at this school!!

I have gone to Hair Dynamics, along with other area schools to check them out....I had already gotten advice from a friend of mine to check Hair Dynamics out ( she is a student there) because she had already attended another area school, and then transferred to Hair Dynamics....well, to make a long story short, she ended up having to basically start all over again, because she had pretty much learned absolutly NOTHING, and was pretty much lost once she got to Hair Dynamics....anyways, they totally worked w her to get her up to speed and now she is doing great...so, with that info, I went around looking at area schools and I can say that I see why she transferred...I am excited to start this fall, the school is very nice, and from what I have already heard and then from what I saw when I took my tour of the school, I think I have made the right choice....you get alot of "extras" you would not get in other schools, and they were very helpful in getting my financial aide filled out and ready....I cannot wait to start!

This is the worst education experience I have ever had. I attended UNC, CU Denver, and am applying for grad school in NY. With all of my education and experience I know what you should expect from a school, I know that the guidelines you recieve when you enter are the guidelines you should be able to rely on until graduation. With Hair Dynamics, this is NOT the case. 3 months prior to graduation they started making up excuses for me to not proceed on time, I was within .3% of a requirement and had a month to improve it, and they insisted I could never achieve my requirement on time. Academic advisors are supposed to guide you and motivate you, but instead my academic advisor was a STUDENT by night. You would think that would break STUDENT CONFIDENTIALLITY agreements or perhaps become a CONFLICT OF INTEREST. This place is nothing more than a money hungry establishment run by adults with 5th grade educations. How they managed to obtain wonderful instructors is beyond me.

I was just looking at the fingermark bruises on the back of my calf when I decided to write a little review of my Hair Dynamics "Experience". My friend Teresa and I went in for pedicures and came away with much more!
Aside from walking away $30 poorer we were both grabbed roughly, demeaned, and generally taken advantage of. The little gril doing my pedicure apparently thinks herself "untouchable" as she kept telling us she was dating the Boulder County Sheriff's son
Our nail polish began chipping the next day because no top coat was applied. The finger prints on the back of my calf will far outlast any polish on my fingers.
When the instrucor came around she didn't even look at my nail "work". The teacher was too busy looking at the disgusted look on her studen's face that she thought I couldn't see.
If you want to be demeaned and treated like you are less than human Hair Dynamics is the plkace for you!
It seems that the people at Hair Dynamics can dish it out. I doubt they can take it.

To say I'm dissapointed, and let down with hair dynmics would be a understatement. The staff is unbeilevable at the school, the instructors become your friends and truly care about you, they teach you what they have learned from the real world. As for the owners, that's another story. They make you feel as if letting you into hair dynamics is somekind secret club only the elite get into. Honestly, if you have the money ot doesn't matter who you are. Your in. The owners are very monet hungry, and you can see it by how they speak, and treat you. There are changes made constantly, so nothing is ever stable. From my personal experience last year at hair dynamics it has sucked the motivation out of me to do hair. The school was once something I looked forward to, but after I graduated I couldn't get out fast enough. With the constant changes in the rules, there is always some kind of roadblock for you to get through, one more hoop to jump through. If it wasn't for the personable instructors I too would have been a beauty school drop out.

I am currently a student here. I am paying a lot in tuition - more than most schools and feel that i'm getting an ok education. The instructor to student ratio in the salon is terrible. At nights, there is only one instructor for ALL of the students and there is a lot of us. The backoffice is terrible - they messed up my student loan 3 times, they have screwed up my hours and credits too. The instructors that are there seem to be great though, just wish there were more of them. Considering it's a beauty school though I try not to expect too much despite the high tuition they are making.

I am currently a student here. I am paying a lot in tuition - more than most schools and feel that i'm getting an ok education. The instructor to student ratio in the salon is terrible. At nights, there is only one instructor for ALL of the students and there is a lot of us. The backoffice is terrible - they messed up my student loan 3 times, they have screwed up my hours and credits too. The instructors that are there seem to be great though, just wish there were more of them. Considering it's a beauty school though I try not to expect too much despite the high tuition they are making.

I go to Hair Dynamics currently. After touring other local schools and speaking with other students, I realized the Hair Dynamics is a fantastic organization. I have learned so much through the Pivot Point curriculum, Milady Curriculum, and the amazing teachers with years of experience. Dale Matuska (not Matsunaka) and Tina Matuska, though yes they are making quite a lot from tuition, truly stand by their educators, and their student's best interests. Their whole life is about Cosmetology. I absolutely love my school and am so glad that I chose it over the other two local schools. We have in school competitions for updos, haircuts, makeup, and last month the advanced styling class held a fantasy competition with a Marvel Comics theme! Students and teachers both attend seminars and trade shows, and Dale and Tina bring in guest speakers to teach classes once or twice a month. This school is just awesome! I am going to graduate in early March and I feel very confident for state boards! Hair Dynamics students have a 98% first time pass rate at state boards, which I think truly shows the educators know their stuff. If you are considering going to school for cosmetology, I 100% recommend Hair Dynamics !!!

Hair Dynamics Education Center may be the most practical and valuable beauty school in this tri-state area. I recently met with the owner, Dale Matsunaka, and discussed at length the pro's and con's of his self built beauty academy. What I admired most is his passion to provide the very best instruction possible for students to which he has a sincere allegiance. They hire only the finest staff and deliver first class training with the highly acclaimed Pivot Point training literature. If you're looking for beauty school for your son or daughter, I encourage you to check out Hair Dynamics.

I was a student at another beauty school for three months and was not happy with my education. I transferred to Hair Dynamics last fall and learned more in my first week that all the months I attended the other school. It is amazing the difference between schools. Hair Dynamics has been newly remodeled and is beautiful. The atmosphere is professional. It feels like a salon more than a school. The instructors are very knowledgeable and go out of their way to help you learn. My experience so far has been very good. The owners are in the school all the time helping us and working with the staff. I think it is a great place.

Hair Dynamics is a local beauty school where they teach hair cutting, hair coloring, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and facials. You can walk in or make an appointment to have any of those services done at a very low price by the students. My family has been going there for a long time and have never had any real problems. Hair cuts are $7.50, color is around $20-25. It's a great alternative to high priced salons if you have a little adventure in you! The inside decor is outdated and desperately needs a remodel. The people are nice and the students are good.
