My experience at the IBC was absolutely amazing. Starting with Annette who accepted my transfer from another Esthetician school. The administration is very professional and care about their students and their success. My instructor Lorie was very knowledgeable and was a pleasure to learn from. She made my time at the school a pleasant one. I learned a lot in theory as the curriculum prepared me for my state boards in which I received a 98%. I can’t say enough about this school. If you’re thinking about enrolling, you should absolutely do it.

Great students & hair cuts ✂️ But, each time I get a new beautician they graduate 🎓 which is fantastic for them but sad for me !

I had a wonderful experience. Everyone was polite and pleasant. My student was Jose. He was the best. He knew what he was doing. He was gentle with my hair and scalp and did a great job styling my hair. He was very knowledgeable and professional. I left with a good impression of the school. Thanks, Jose
