I went to this school about 2 years ago. I signed up with the same dream as all the other girls/boys just to be let down.
I want people to be aware before they waste their money here. They give you a set of hours you get to miss and these hours are barley enough to get you through the year. They make you pay 2.50 per hour you miss and make you make up the hours on your own time, regardless if you work after school they do not care. I was charged an EXTRA $1200 just to graduate.
This school is just the worst. I had a passion in doing hair and make up. I started out thinking this was going to be the best time of my life, learning what I love to do. Just to be let down.
I learned that in this industry every person who surrounds you is catty. And I mean EVERY person. I would watch girls pretend to be friends with one girl just to have her turn her back for second and that was enough time to make fun of her. Besides that, the teachers made me feel useless.
I had questions I was AFRAID to ask because I felt as if my own teachers were also judging me. They picked their favorites and if you weren't one of them you were not treated equally. I want Long Island Beauty School to know that they've changed my faith in this industry & that I no longer do hair and I haven't since I've graduated that school. They made me feel lower than I've ever felt.
I've had no hope in myself since I've went to this school. recently I received a phone call from one of the heads in there and asked to see how I was doing.
I refuse to call back. Sorry this is so long but please don't waste your time or money going here.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
