Cat Miles, Esthetician graduate: Lincoln, NE

The decision to attend the College of Hair Design for esthetics was perfect for me. After researching several schools, I knew that College of Hair Design offered the most hours and the best course of study. The instructors have real-life experience. They have their own salons, built clienteles, and sold their own products and services. They also truly care about their students and want them to be successful. The school offers a beautiful spa environment to learn in. The classes are hands-on and the curriculum is outstanding. The small classes mean that everyone helps each other and I have lifelong friends because of it. I have successfully worked in a salon since graduating and I am proud to have attended the College of Hair Design.”
