    Im a current student here at Empire Beauty. The educators are very knowledgable, friendly, helpful, and professional. They all quickly adapted to the major changes that are going on due to coronavirus. They truly want to teach us and guide us to success, they elaborate on every subject in detail and will keep at it until each student understands it fully. They take their time with all of the students and go out of their way for us daily. The director, Ms. Ford, is extremely knowledgeable and does everything she possibly can to make sure those who want to attend Empire get in and stay in yes she is strick when it comes to students who aren't coming to school and thats only because she wants you to succeed also to keep you from being dropped by financial aid. She cares. She is the go to for everything! Mrs. Gaither is a Presalon educator, she is amazing. She understands that newer students don't always understand some of the basics that cosmetologists know and do daily, so she breaks everything all the way down and builds up on it so we understand everything and gladly helps you one on one until you master it! She knows the textbook through and through!

    Now I'm Mrs. Bells class! I love it, it's so fun to come in and set up and take clients! It's preparing me for my future. She's very kind, silly, easy to get along, with and very professional. She teaches us the advanced parts of the text book and elaborates on it. Her position entails an abundance of tasks plus she has to make sure all of the clients get booked, and are treated professionally while they receive their service, ensure that we are giving the clients exactly what they want, teach us to do everything correctly and professionally Ms. Bell comes to the student with each client before the service is performed to make sure we are going to do what they want properly, if we need help she hands on shows us exactly how to do everything correctly and ergonomically. She stays busy here with her students and clients but she is always avaliable to help you. I love that she kind of let's us do what we want when it comes to getting our >300 mark offs needed to graduate on our manaquines. She allows us to figure out how things on our own like we would when we graduate, schedule clients, and teaches us how it's going to be in the salon world. All the well she's DEDICATED!!

    Took the esthetics course with Ms. Brooke and she made my experience here at empire very enjoyable. It was a pleasure to have her as a teacher as she is very knowledgable in the field and made class interesting and fun as there is lots of book work in the beginning. I enjoyed all of the hands on experience I recieved. I feel prepared and can't wait to start my journey as an esthetician.
