Hear the experiences of former students

The education I received at the IBS School of Cosmetology and Massage was stellar. One of the very first things I noticed was that IBS fostered a cooperative, rather than competitive, atmosphere. I felt supported and encouraged both by staff, and by the other students. This was important, as I was there as a non-traditional student seeking a career change. I found their competency-based program to be just exactly what I was looking for. I received a full education in my field, with no time wasted purely for the sake of meeting arbitrary class hours. The classes were thorough, and prepared me well for taking the state boards. I felt comfortable asking questions because I knew I’d receive a patient, thoughtful response. When I graduated, I was confident in my knowledge and skill level, and well-prepared to take the state boards. Even after graduating, I know I can always come back to IBS for help and advice in my field. I can’t recommend the IBS School of Cosmetology and Massage highly enough. Great education, great instructors, and great value.

IBS offers encouraging and knowledgeable instructors, a helpful office staff, and a unique school schedule that works for you. I am very grateful for my time at IBS. They gave me the confidence in my ability to do hair which helped me open my own barbershop. When you attend IBS, you learn so much and you make amazing connections with the instructors, other students, and the clients. Go to IBS, you will have fun while you gain knowledge and you'll be able to ace your state board tests!
