Love from our Alumni

My experience at the academy was excellent because I learned something I always wanted to do!

I had a degree in nursing but knew that I had a passion for hairstyling. The wonderful teachers and staff changed my future both professionally and emotionally. The best part about the Academy was working on the clinic floor which operates just like a professional salon. It gave me the confidence to start my new career in less than a month after graduating! My favorite part of working in this industry is the joy and excitement that my clients bring me because of the quality work I perform.

WILMA PEREZ  |  PHILADELPHIA, PA

My experience at the Beauty Institute | Schwarzkopf Professional was life changing.

The curriculum allowed me to tap into and explore my creativity resulting in unique, personalized work I am truly proud of but most importantly the confidence to build a fulfilling career. The skill set I built gave me the edge I needed to gain employment in a great salon and I cant wait to see what the future holds.

NICOLE CONNELLY  |  PHILADELPHIA, PA

My experience at The Beauty Institute | Schwarzkopf Professional has lead me down a successful path.

I had the opportunity to work closely with my instructors which gave me the confidence I needed to become a professional stylist. I graduated with great friends & education which ultimately landed me a position as an apprentice in a local salon."

ERIC ROBINSON  |  PHILADELPHIA, PA

As a Schwarzkopf Professional graduate I learned a lot during the 8 months i was enrolled in the school.

The teachers were very personable and hands on. If i ever had a question about anything the teachers were more than willingly to help. If i ever had a doubt in my mind about a particular service I knew they would be able to help me and walk me through until I was confident enough to execute the task on my own. I met wonderful students and I wouldn't trade my beauty school experience for any other. Through all I experienced at the academy, I learned a great deal and it was truly a humbling experience."

SALINA JORDAN  |  PHILADELPHIA, PA

I started in August 2013 with a dream and a passion for the beauty industry. I never imagined I would develop not only my artistic ability but also my people skills in the way I had in just 9 months. The teachers were unbelievably helpful and had so much advice and insight along the way. I also made lifelong friends and amazing memories including placing second in the "Around the World in Centuries" fashion show. Graduating and earning my hours to become a cosmetologist has been a wonderful and fulfilling experience. I feel so excited for all the new opportunity and open doors that this school has helped to show me.

Here at The Beauty Institute | Schwarzkopf Professional the experience is really awesome. I started back in November. When I first started I didn’t even know how to comb a girls hair, and I was really overwhelmed, but the staff and teachers are really awesome. They help you out, and I’m really happy I started.

Joseph 2014

I could not have done that without your help! The Beauty Institute | Schwarzkopf Professional was truly the best pick of schools I chose from and I'm so proud to have graduated from there! I have also received so many compliments from other stylists in my salon saying how they would have never guessed I graduated 3 months ago and how professional I am, so again Thank You!

Nikki L. 2014

I loved my experience here at school! The staff were truly talented, loving and extremely patient with everyone and they taught me everything they could. The curriculum was helpful, it taught us every process step by step so it was very easy to master. I truly am going to miss being in school and everyone that was there!

I had just graduated from the cosmetology school and this had to be the most wonderful experience of my life, the staff and teacher are very warm and inviting. This school was the best choice I've ever made!!! Love you guys!!!...This will always be my second home:)

Margaret G. 2015

I was a student at The Beauty Institute, and I can honestly say it’s a great school. The staff makes sure you learn what you need to learn, so you are ready for the cosmetology world out there. It’s really a great, warm environment to be apart of.

Kimmy B. 2013

I attended The Beauty Institute | Schwarzkopf Professional and it was one of the best experiences I've had. The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, the opportunities to learn more than just basic haircuts are great and more then anything, it was fun. I loved my time there and I graduated with job interviews lined up and a great outlook on my future career.

You will only get out of an education what you put into it, and if you are willing to throw yourself into this group of people, they will make sure you come out of it successful. Everything is covered, from the needed theory and technical basics to creative techniques and avant garde competitions. As a student, you are encouraged to work practically on other students, to achieve real life experience, as well being on rotation for taking salon clients. The teachers and director are supportive, constructive, innovative, and not only allow us to exercise our inventive minds and perfect our technical abilities, but encourage us to be the best stylists we can be.
