I am so grateful for the staff staff that became my mentors. Because of the education they provided and my willingness to actually learn above and beyond I excelled and now have my own salon which I within 3 months of graduation. The staff are always there when you need them even after you are no longer a student. I also hire from the school because I believe in their education. See More

the first time i went in i got a facial, wash, blow dry, set, and makeup really cheap but also really well for my senior pictures. the girl who did it was phenomenal. her name was trish. ...

today, however, was not very great. i went in to have my hair washed, blow dried, and set. the guy up front (can't remember his name but he was bald and had a beard) talked me into a trim because i haven't done it in a while and he said it would only be a little bit. i was fine with a little bit. the stylist named karen, bless her, did not do a very good job. i have naturally curly hair and it takes a while usually to straighten my hair. after shampooing, she asked me if i wanted a trim and i said yes. she sectioned off my hair and started cutting the bottom layer. after she was done, she was like "by the way, i cut an inch off is that okay?" oh. my. god. i don't know what it's like in straight/wavy hair land but an inch off of curly hair= three when it dries. i was kind of shook that she took that much off. i didn't really know what to say. anyways, after that she blow dried my hair. that makes my hair wavy and frizzy. she didn't section it again and simply touched up the top layer. i didn't realize that the whole bottom layer of my hair was wavy frizzy until i left and was very disappointed in the fact that i had to touch it up after i left. the whole thing added up to be $9.

the reason i'm giving four stars is because i would definitely come here again and i'm not mad at karen i just think she didn't have much knowledge/experience with my unruly hair type. it's a good place don't get me wrong.

i would definitely give this place five stars if their stylists knew how to style all different hair types. great place nevertheless. :)

I tried for 3 days to call this place to ask questions and set up an appointment for myself and my friend... I called the number provided by their website!
Upon arriving I explained I had tried to cal...l and was told "oh yeah I keep telling them to remove the number!" And was given a business card with a correct number on it.
My friend an I went in together, both for perms. One of us could go first while the other waited an hour. I opted to wait, she went first. We both presented pictures (the exact same picture!) Of what we wanted.
She went in an hour before me, they forgot a step in her perm process, rolled her hair without the prep stuff, the girl who did her hair kept just walking away. It took 4 hours to do her hair! I waited an hour to be seen, and was done before she was! (Her hair is maybe 3" longer than mine)
As stated above, I presented a picture of exactly what I wanted. A pretty curly perm. She mentioned that I wanted a wavy curl, to which I stated i wanted curls not waves. More ringlets less like a crimp.
I would first like to compliment the tech who assisted me and did my hair. She was awesome and had great service skills. She was great!
Now, at first, my hair looked so pretty, then within the hour my curls hair started falling out.. My hair looks like a frazzled dried out wavy mess!!
I have another appointment in sept for nail services.... hoping that goes better...

PLEASE READ: This review is coming form a person who attended an actual University as a legal major, before finally deciding to follow my passion and create beauty. I researched Empire for years. I co...nstantly looked at the pages and read about their award winning education and how their school will put you way ahead of the game in the professional cosmetology world. SAVE YOUR MONEY. Go to the cheapest school you can find, and get your license. You will not learn anything more from here then you would have if you sat at home and watched youtube videos all day for free. The staff, "education", clocked hours, attendance policy, product knowledge, and in a lot of cases the facilities at these schools are not what you would expect, they are garbage for $20,000 per student. I am almost begging you to look at better options. You will hardly even learn the basics at this school, make working a part or full time job hell if doing it in conjunction, and end up with so much more debt then this "education" is worth. If I can save one person from going to this school, then this post was worth it. Zero stars. It makes me put at least 1. See More
