If I could give negative stars I would. I inquired with the school in regards to getting an education at their institution, I spoke with Jean Banks in regards to an extenuating circumstance with being able to enroll at their school... she abruptly cut me off and said "It won't work." I have never seen an "educator" so unwilling to work with a potential student in order to achieve their goals, it's entirely misleading and utterly disappointing. If she had even given me the opportunity to fully explain the situation I would have been able to tell her I would be able to pay in full for the tuition. I'm happy I spoke with her, I am now entirely unwilling to support their school with my hard earned funds to be merely brushed off. I'm thrilled I won't be wasting my money or time at a mediocre facility, and I suggest you do the same. There are PLENTY of other beauty schools out there willing to accomodate and support you without leaving a bad taste in your mouth before even stepping in the door.

From Catwoman J's review below (who insults American soldiers by equating their work to prostitution):

"The negative reviews are rubbish."

What negative reviews, you ask? All the ones that the owner, Jean Banks, keeps on deleting. She's a horrible woman who is only interested in making money for herself while deceiving the public.

That's why I won't waste my time typing any more, as Jean will just delete my review yet again. Anyone who works hard on their own can pass the exams, but that doesn't mean this school contributes to your education. I could have done the same thing on my own without being ripped off for thousands of dollars in wasted tuition.

It's called KARMA, Jean.

I got a great education at this school. Not only were the basics more than adequately covered, but so were some advanced topics not included in the curriculum anywhere else. When I got out into the workforce I found myself leaps ahead of other graduates in experience, knowledge, independence, and confidence. Unlike students I knew at other schools, I passed my state boards with high scores THE FIRST TIME and so did everyone in my graduating class.
The negative reviews are rubbish. I can tell you exactly the type of student that says those things. I saw three of them when I went to school there. It's the one that can't get past high school. They hide in the back when called for clients, then complain when students like the rest of us get all the experience and training. They're too busy getting pregnant in the local park or reading fashion magazines and gossiping in the lunch room to show up to class, study their text book, or complete their paperwork. Then they flop around in their chair, moan loudly, pick fights with other students, and blame the staff when they can't graduate because they can't pass their pre-boards written exams. They can't keep a budget or make responsible payments to save their life. So they blame the staff, drama with other students, or the school when they can't pay their bills.
A career in the Cosmetology industry requires the motivation and solid work ethic of a contractor. If you can't manage that, then you're looking at the wrong career choice. Like with any college or trade school for adults, the instructors are not going to play hide n seek, cops n robbers, or pull you out of bed to give you an education. If that's what you need in order to learn, then maybe you should consider sweatshop work, military, or prostitution instead.
