    Testimonials

    My past year in the Hairstyling program at St. Lawrence College has been the best school experience I have ever had! This program gave me everything that I needed to succeed the hairstyling industry; from teaching me the basics, helping me grow with my skills and techniques in lab class lessons and client days where we work on real people to give us the feel of a salon atmosphere and the theory behind everything to understand the science behind it all.  The teachers were so great, they are all currently working in salons and are very talented stylists.  The teachers are so encouraging, supportive and have helped prepared me for my career in hairstyling.  This program was so much fun and I learned a lot. If you’re looking for a career that’s hands on and where you can be creative in so many ways, hairstyling might be for you!
