Cosmetology Student Reviews
Reviews from our cosmetology students.
I had my hair done & was so impressed! I have gone to the Saint George location frequently, but I recently moved to the Orem area so I decided to give the Provo location a shot. Receptionists, Instructors, and students were all so friendly! I got my hair cut & colored by Courtney & Sienna. I love the way my hair has turned out each time at Taylor Andrews, their work exceeds all of the professional salons I have ever been to! I will definitely be going back next time I get my hair done and try out some of the other services!
For starters let me just say I went to many Beauty schools and nothing compared to Taylor Andrews. Taylor Andrews is professional in many ways and also the instructors do help when you need it. I think future students who are looking for a professional, and awesome and that have goals and want people to push them towards their goals I think Taylor Andrews is the right fit . One thing I was looking for when I was looking at different schools I noticed Taylor Andrews fits around your schedule if you’re a busy or non-busy person they always find the right time that fits you the best. I can’t wait for more memories and more experiences at this school this is my second month here and I cannot brag about how grateful and exciting I am going to keep going and to keep following my dreams because one thing that’s a big part of the school they always push you to the limit and MAKE SURE you get where you wanna be in life and in this career.
I love Taylor Andrews! I’m a student here and I would recommend this school to anybody interested in cosmetology! The instructors are amazing, for the most part, and the variety of professional guest artists they bring in from all around the world are so beneficial to your education! It’s something you won’t find at other schools. Most complaints seem to come back to the student and their willingness to or not to learn and putting in the time and having the right motivation. Just like anything else, what you will get out of school depends on how willing and eager you are to learn it! You cannot come here expecting somebody to make you a professional while you do nothing. Ask questions, the instructors are more than willing to answer and work with you and help you understand! It’s professional and clean. Larry (the owner) seems to genuinely care about the students and takes the time to come talk to us about the salon world and gives tips for being successful. You can’t go wrong at Taylor Andrews. No, it’s not perfect, but it’s pretty close! So glad I chose this school. Plus, you work with a variety of professional products and gain useful knowledge on popular products and you’re always encouraged to keep learning!
