So surprised at the negative reviews here. The staff cares very very much about you, and they will help you find a job. They will not hand you a job. If you go in expecting to be handed things then you will be disappointed. \r

This school is by far the worst school I have ever been too. This school cares more about making money than it does about it's students. I was promised job placement, even though I asked, I received none. Instead of learning we sat there most of the time talking. For 8k I learned the bare minimum and not what I was told I would learn. They messed up my fasa so many times I can't even count and then tried to get me to pay for their mistakes. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!

On behalf of the students here at Continental, we would like to thank the teachers and staff for this moment in our lives.\r
\r
You dedicate your lives every day to helping us reach our goals.\r
\r
Not only do you teach us the techniques that we need to succeed in a new career, but you also teach us to be great people in our everyday lives.\r
\r
Each day emotions, problems, and life issues come walking through these doors and each one of you takes it with stride.\r
\r
You open your hearts, minds and talents and are patient in helping us understand things we just don't fully understand and guide us to excelling at them.\r
\r
In the short amount of time that we have been here you have helped us grow as people.\r
\r
You teach us respect for ourselves as well as others.\r
\r
You show us to see our own beauty as well as making others beautiful.\r
\r
You help us learn healthy ways to communicate and resolve situations in our lives.\r
\r
To some of us this is just another stop and we will move on and continue to succeed.\r
\r
For most of us though this is the first accomplishment in our lives.\r
\r
Every time we reach our goal you are right there to put your hands together to acknowledge us meeting our goal.\r
\r
Without your dedication, patience and education we would not have made it here today.\r
\r
soooooo, on behalf of all the students that have walked through these doors and all the ones to come we applaud you for your greatness in helping us reach our goals and live our dreams.\r

I have to say I have been reading these comments and started wondering where these peple have gone to school. I'am soon to graduate from the NAILS AND WAXING program at CONTINENTAL and I have to say my experience has been AWESOME. My teacher is the greatest she is always willing to help out and help you until you get the grasp of something.And you become like one little family with EVERYONE there :) You know your learning and job searching process starts with YOU. You have to excert yourself, NOBODY is going to do the work for you. So before you put down what I think is the BEST school out there, Learn to do something for yourself. They will never promise what they can't produce. I'm very thankful for the education I'm getting and the experience I will have because of it. So 2 thumbs up for CONTINENTAL!!!!!!

I meet with admissions and was promised an amazing job and job placement. I do have to say they have a few amazing teachers. But after you graduate thats it. They told me i would have lifetime job placement. Not true at all i called 4 times and left messages and not a call back. I feel like there just out to get your money. I graduated in 2006 with an esthetics licence and now it 2011 couldnt get a job anywheres.

Had I known I would have chosen Shear Ego over Continental. Shear Ego has a salon which offers studentes an opportunity for employment. Continental doesn't offer anything to help you in the work force and all you receive when you graduate is a phone call asking if you are now employed. Not have you passed your exam? Is there anything we can do to help you in any way? Continental is all about the money and don't care about the students.I rated one star only because I have to. They shouldn't receive that.

The school just wants to make sure you graduate. The quality of education is poor. They promise you a great career making lots of money-not true, folks. Also, they tell you while you are in school that you can come back as an alumni for refresher courses, etc. Not true! They really want you to just go away after graduation. They also say they will help you get a job after graduation-don't believe it-not true. I was very discouraged with this school (if you can even call it that).

My wife is currently going to school there. It's gotten to the point where she went from smiles, to begging me to allow her to stay home. Her class is considered the ""trouble class"". Seriously, what kind of reputation do you want after you graduate? The girls that she goes to school with are young, adolescent kids who don't know what else to do with there lives except create drama. My wife is a talented very well educated woman who deserves respect. She doesn't get that there. The teacher's seem to encourage their behaviors rather than correcting it behind closed doors. Even though she tries to stay away from it all, they always seem to get after her and try to do cruel things to prevent her from exceeding. She also explains to me how disgusting the premises is. Sanitation levels are not encouraged correctly, and many tools/ implements used there are not used correctly. I fear for her reputation for the mere fact that the surrounding environment isn't a positive one! How is she suppose to exceed without succeeding? The teachers instruct her to ""stay in her lane"" but none of the other students seem to follow those directions.

Pros: You can get your cosmetology license cheap

Cons: Disgusting, unorganized, too much drama

I would never get services done here, and I'm a graduated student! The tools used in the nails & esthetics school (where mani's, pedi's, facials, and body treatments are done) were rarely, if ever, cleaned properly. That means: clients are getting olf product, soap, and someone else's dead skin rubbed into their own. The nail instructors have no idea what they are doing. And of the recent graduates from the nail program- half failed their state board test to get licensed. Please be careful! Cheap is cheap for a reason! You absolutely get what you pay for!

I have been going to this place for a while. I used to do highlight and color. They did a good job with the instructor closed monitoring. Students are friendly if you don't mind to let them to take their time. Overall I had good experience. It is better than some of the cheap haircut places even they have their license.

I received a pedicure recently from a student at the School of Beauty. Overall she did a good job, and I was very happy that the instructors were nearby with helpful hints and tips for the student. I would go back again.

As a patron, I have gone to Continental for years and have found the teachers to be very good and the students to have a real desire to learn. I find the amount of services provided to be adequate and the price to be competitive.

PROS: Just about everything there deserves an A+
CONS:

My mother gets her hair done here and likes it. She feels that they do a good job, and the price is certainly below other salons with more established stylists.

PROS: value
CONS: stylists still learning and can make errors

If you don't mind getting your haircut by a novice, this is the place for you. The cost is relatively cheap. You can get your hair colored, cut and many other services. I usually ask for someone who is close to graduating.

I got my haircut from a beginner hairdresser, it turned out ok, it was nice that the instructor was around, but the hairdresser wasnt friendly and was rough with my head. She cut me with the clippers too. Next time I'll just go to someone already with a diploma
