Besides being a school it's also a great place to get a cheap cut. They've been around forever and students go on to cut from Supercuts to the best salons in the valley. They primarily teach hair styling, but they also give instruction on

This is a fantastic school. I would definitely recommend it for any student looking to go to cosmetology school in Vegas. A chance for great learning opportunities and a fun experience. The environment in the school is young and hip just as the beauty industry should be. The teachers are great and even willing to stay late just to help the students out with their hours. One of my favorite parts of attending this school was the talent shows they hold. It gives a chance for the students to show off their creative talents by designing costumes, hair styles, nail art, make up, and body paintings. IWe put a lot of work into this, and it definitely made school fun as well as an eye opener of new ideas. The owner's of this school are good people, and they run the place like any business should be ran. If you put in your dedication, study hard, and work hard, you will have an awesome experience at the Academy of Hair Design!

The Academy of Hair Design honestly changed my life for the better. As a teenager, I never knew what I wanted to do with my life after high school. I decided I wanted to go to beauty school and pursue a career. Not only the teachers but the management staff were beyond supportive and helpful. As a student, you must put forth the effort to be successful. Some people think beauty school is the easy way out.. WRONG. If you work hard and show respect, the teachers and staff will treat you with upmost respect themselves. The Academy of Hair Design is extremely professional and very up-to-date. The staff is always working hard to make school fun and enjoyable. This school is not about laziness and disrespectful people. They encourage their students to work hard and in any situation with a difficult client, they will always have your back. I not only learned hair, skin, and nails but I also learned life lessons and people skills. This school is the best!

Hmm, that's funny you and bitch and complain about what a shitty school it is. You're probably the same students who sat around all day hiding from tickets or never showing up for school and wondered why the teachers never took you seriously. I knew too many of you.

On a happy note. I graduated from Academy of Hair Design last year. Had the pleasure of meeting some great new friends and learning lots. Had a hard time walking up sometimes, but it was definitely worth it in the end. Because I got the education I needed to be a licensed cosmetologist. All the teachers are super helpful and knowledgeable. Ms. Jeanie, Ms. Amy, Ms. Lori, Ms. Donna, Mr. Anthony, Mr. Mark are just a few of the smiling faces that'll brighten up your day!

Think of it as a privilege to go to this school, learn, and have fun. Because when you don't take it seriously it gets taken away. If you're going to school for something like this, you're an adult now, it's not high school. The teachers don't like not taking you seriously, but when you give them reason to not take you seriously, then they won't.

I LOVE YOU GUYS! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

I graduated from the academy 5 years ago. I still remember how great the teachers were, They are very knowledgeable and make every student feel at home. I couldn't have asked for better teachers. Mrs. Marilyn gave me the the best advice ever...."hair is hair, you just deal with it differently." I am very thankful for her and all the other teachers that made my beauty school experience worth talking about. Five years and counting :) I love being a color specialist!

The Academy of Hair Design is hands down the best school in town. I am a graduate, and know of many stylists and nail techs in town that graduated from AHD, and have nothing but wonderful things to say. The school is managed well, the teachers are informative and well educated. Miss Lori and Miss Donna are the best, they make learning fun and easy. I'm so glad I choose ACD over Euphoria and will highly recommend this school to anyone searching for a quality education.

I totally agree with all of you here,I went to this school and i wish i never did,you don't learn nothing by sitting all day waiting to take client,instead gossiping about other student,teachers businesses.i know who is there to teach and who is there to collect pay checks and bossing the student like they were a 3 years old.weak up people you wasting your money and time,do your research and go to a better school.the owner or the management i should say don't care a bit about whats happening in that school.

This school was a complete waste of my time. They don't care if you learn or not. There is one teacher who won't let you learn you have to wait around for clients to show up all day. Then, you get yelled at like you're 5 at least 20 times a day. If you breathe that's a problem too. The owner don't care about students who want to learn and put in requests for one of the two teachers who actually do teach you something. If you have something contagious they'd rather you come to school then miss any days. I'm a third of the way through my course and they do not help you transfer your hours to another school very easily. Overall, THEY SUCK!!! Do NOT waste your time. I'm transferring to Marinello where if you are not working on a client you are in class. HELLO? LEARNING!!!!! Not staring at walls waiting to get yelled at for sitting a little to far to the left in your chair!!! These people are ridiculous and when you try to go to a counselor for help they look at you like you have 5 heads and say " I don't know why you are saying that, that's not what's happening". Too many students there are comfortable with just getting by. I'd like to actually learn and apply myself, considering I'm paying for this not being paid.

Cons: expensive, they don't care if you learn, waste of time

This cosmetology school treats you VERY poor AFTER they get your money. They make you write an essay, take a test, bring in letters of recommendations, and a bunch of other stuff "before" they will accept you. MY GOD!! WE ARE GIVING THEM MONEY TO GO THERE AND THEY WANT US TO DO ALL THAT!! I CHOSE ANOTHER SCHOOL BECAUSE OF IT. THEY ALSO HAVE A BAD REPUTATION FOR ABUSING THEIR STUDENTS. I TRIED TO DISCUSS THIS PROBLEM WITH LAURIE THE OWNER, BUT SHE JUST SHRUGGED HER SHOULDERS AND PLUGGED HER EARS AND SAID 'OH WELL'. SO I CHOSE ANOTHER SCHOOL TO GIVE MY TWENTY THOUSAND TO.

I went in today with 3 sisters, my mom and my brother, my sisters all got their nails done and as soon as we got home they were already chipping, they cut too much off of my mothers hair, and not enough off of my brothers hair. I went in to get a full body wave.. they asked me before we started when the last time I dyed my hair was which was 2 weeks ago, and I told them. They said ok, the girl that did my hair was very nice, however, they neglected to ask me if I'd had my hair highlighted recently, which I had 3 months ago, they damaged my hair so badly it's falling out in clumps, I went to ask for a partial refund, not even a whole refund, and they said it was my fault I didn't tell them I had highlights. I told them if they knew that highlighting and perming didn't go together so well they should be asking their customers about that aswell, since I had no idea. They told me it's not their problem and shooed me out the door. As I was walking out another lady was running in screaming at them about how her hair turned out aswell, absolutey horrible.

If you are wanting to attend a cosmetology school to learn hair, nails, or skincare; then DON'T go to this school. They have a bad reputation in town for not caring about their students. They treat their students as free labor. These students are paying good money to learn a new trade, and not to be free labor. The school is costing the cosmetology students nearly $20,000.00 each. Manicuring and skincare students are paying about half of that, around $8,000.00 to $10,000.00 each student.

If you happen to be in the neighborhood of the school which is on Charleston, then walk in, and you will see that NOT ONE of the students have a smile on their face. They are unhappy with their environment.

The staff is to blame for the negative environment of the school. The receptionist is not nice and the admissions reps are horrible people; namely a black woman named Eve. Eve is just a horrible person. There is also a masculine woman who is another admissions rep who goes by the name of Betsy. She is just as mean and nasty as Eve.

However, the owners daughter Laura is nice. She is helpful. But unfortunately her admission reps Eve and Betsy lost her a student.

Don't go here. Go to Aveda or Marinello. I have nothing but good things about those two schools. And don't go to Euphoria either. Especially don't go to Euphoria. They are worse than Academy.

BACK IN THE 1960's MY MOTHER WOULD ALWAYS GET HER HAIR DONE AT THE BEAUTY COLLEGE IN PORTLAND, OREGON. WHEN WE RETIRED TO LAS VEGAS 3 YEARS AGO FROM PORTLAND I FOUND WHAT I THOUGH WAS A GREAT BEAUTY SALON WITH A WONDERFUL STYLIST. BUT AFTER GOING THERE 3 OR 4 TIMES I FOUND THAT THE PRICE FOR CUTTING AND COLORING MY HAIR WAS GETTING MORE AND MORE EXPENSIVE. ONCE THE PRICE REACHED CLOSE TO $175.00 I HAD ENOUGH!! I REMEMBERED THAT MY MOTHER USE TO GO TO THE BEAUTY COLLEGES SO I LOOKED-UP THIS ONE IN LAS VEGAS AND OFF I WENT. I WAS A LITTLE SKEPTICAL, AS I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE BEST CARE GIVEN TO MY HAIR..BUT, SINCE WE ARE ON A FIXED INCOME I DECIDED TO GIVE THE ACADEMY OF HAIR DESIGN A TRY. I DID NOT NEED AN APPOINTMENT. UPON ENTERING THE BUILDING I WAS SO IMPRESSED BY ALL OF THE HAIR CUTTING AND CHATTERING GOING ON. IT WAS AN UP-BEAT PLACE. I WAS GREETED BY A FRIENDLY RECEPTIONIST AND IN NO TIME AT ALL I WAS PLACED WITH A STUDENT HAIR STYLIST THAT WAS MATCHED WITH ME ACCORDING TO WHAT I TOLD THE RECEPTIONIST I WANTED DONE TO MY HAIR. THE YOUNG MAN THAT THEY PLACED ME WITH WAS A HOOT!! HE MADE ME LAUGH THE WHOLE TIME..HE GAVE ME A WONDERFUL HEAD AND NECK MASSAGE WHEN HE RINSED MY HAIR..BUT THE BEST WAS YET TO COME...HE HAD FOILED-WRAPPED MY HAIR ( I AM A BLONDE) AND HE SHAPED MY LONG HAIR INTO A FULL, MESSY, FUN LAYERED CUT..IT WAS BETTER THAN ANY $100 CUT THAT I HAD EVER HAD!! AND THE COLOR WAS PERFECT!! NOT TO MENTION THE LAUGHTER!! WITH THE CUT, COLOR AND TIP..I SPENT LESS THAN $40.00!! I SAVED SO MUCH ON MY HAIR THAT I TREATED MYSELF TO A MANICURE..IT TOOK LONGER THAN MOST MANICURES BUT THE GIRL TOOK HER TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT I WAS HAPPY. I HAD A GREAT DAY AT THE ACADEMY AND FOR NOW ON I THINK I WILL ALWAYS GO THERE..UNLESS THE YOUNG MAN THAT DID MY HAIR LET'S ME KNOW WHERE HE WILL BE STARTING WORK AT ONCE HE GRADUATES!! I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE THAT WANTS TO PAMPER THEMSELVES TO A DAY OF BEAUTY AND R&R FOR A VERY LOW COST!!

PROS: FUN PLACE..GOOD STYLIST...UNBEATABLE PRICES!!
CONS: NONE

The Academy is a very busy place. You'll be struck immediately at all the students chopping away. Besides being a school it's also a great place to get a cheap cut. They've been around forever and students go on to cut from Supercuts to the best salons in the valley. They primarily teach hair styling, but they also give instruction on massage. The staff is friendly and professional and they are very busy. Success with this school and landing a job is part skill and very much your confidence level. They give you the tools the rest is up to you.
