Hands down, the best decision I could’ve ever made. Everybody here truly cares, and although it is a common saying that all schools are pretty much the same, there are some differences with MSB. Book work is minimal, everything here is very hands on, and receiving education in haircutting from Nino gives us the ability to approach haircuts in a more advanced way. On top of that, I left school feeling very prepared for my job, not just hard-skills wise, but time management and attendance towards everything in life improved drastically.
When first going into the school I felt very nervous but at the Minnesota School of Beauty there is a lot of guidance and help. I ended up feeling very reassured and comfortable. My class took a field trip to Cole’s salon one day where I learned a lot about their company and met managers, I’m grateful the school took us there because I now be working with them. I’m happy I chose to go to Minnesota School of Beauty because I wouldn’t have the opportunity experiences without them!
The atmosphere within the school is close to one of a family they’ve kept be focused and truly believe in their students. The fact that is no tolerance for drama as well as an emphasis of leaving your outside things at the door, personal doesn’t mix well with business learning that has been hard, but I am glad I can separate it now. I have always struggled with testing, but the state test felt like a breeze. Thank you, Lara, Diane, Nino and instructors I am forever in your debt. I love this family. Thank you for your time, patience, support and care with all love. K
