Career Planning

Hollywood Institute, by far, is the BEST school I’ve ever attended.. from the moment you enter the Building, the energy from the Front Desk Staff radiates. I appreciate everyone in the Administration Dept. for their dedication to making our education here at Hollywood Institute.. enjoyable, fun, and safe & giving us all the necessary resources to succeed after graduation!

I have to send an EXTRA BiG THANK YOU !!!.. to my AMAZING TEACHER ... no words can express the gratitude I have for her. Not only is she very experienced and knows when it comes to nails and esthetics, but her patience is also unmatched! I’m very happy to have completed this chapter of my career however it’s bittersweet that I have to leave.

I encourage anyone looking to begin a career in cosmetology, massage therapy, nails, barbering, or esthetics. Visit the campus for a tour I promise you will leave inspired & ready to began your journey!
