I’ve had the best experience with institute of beauty culture not only once but twice! I’m now a licensed manicurist and a licensed esthetician! The owners and instructors are so sweet and truly wants you to succeed. They give you all the tools but you have to put in the work and let me tell you…Im forever grateful! The school has literally changed my life and for my family.
