As an aspiring cosmetologist and current student attending Cameo (2000hours), I believe this school's priority is business over education. If you're looking for a place for hair cuts or colors ect. then this place is great. We're trained before we're allowed to work on clientelle. Keep in mind though, this IS a school so appointments may take longer than your licensed professional...we are still learning. We try our best to give you what you are looking for, but in the end, what our instructor says..goes. As for anyone looking to enroll in any program here at cameo here are some things I ran into... I felt the school was VERY money hungry. Be prepared to pay $15 for any additional hours that you have missed (you're allowed 80pt/100ft). This school is very strict on their dress code and drug policy. If you aren't in the correct attire prepare to be sent home. With those additional fees adding up each hour you aren't on the clock. We get parking tickets that start at $25 and turn into $50 on your second offense when we park in the HOSPITAL parking lot. Once you are allowed to work on clientelle you only get 1 hour of 'theory' (education on cosmetology) each day and the rest of your time will be working on clients. or 'free labor' we like to call it ;). We don't get paid for any services, all the money goes to Cameo. If you are not prepared for any given appointment that they decide to schedule for you, then you're sent home. If you are more than an hour late, then yes, sent home. Regardless of excused absences you will still be charged hourly. in my case, I had OB appointments to attend and if the appointment was any time during school I wasn't allowed to come in, I just had to miss the entire day and pay off the hours...somehow. The education on hair is excellent. very worth it. Yet, they skim over make-up (4hours to be exact)
skin, and lashes. LASHES ARE A JOKE here. A lot of promises made to you in the enrollment process will not be kept. infact, most things that they tell you are just FALSE ADVERTISEMENT. Like any college, there are instructors that DO care about you and your success, as well as instructors that DO NOT. Overall... I feel like there has been a series of let down's for me. I graduate soon, and still havent recieved the classes and kits promissed to me. It's your decision, so if you think Cameo is the school for you.....Read the fine print.
Think twice about going here for electrolysis! I went to Cameo 'College' for electrolysis, and got a rash on my upper lip that kept re-occuring. I went to the school owner Brenda Scharman to ask her to arrange an appointment with a dermatologist. I only wanted this rash diagnosed. She instead set up an appointment with the school's plastic surgeon. He was aggressive and threatening, saying he couldn't see any rash, when it was very visible, and threatening that if anyone said Cameo caused the rash, he "would see them in court." STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!
Best Year!. This had to be the best year yet!! I loved their free services without a ticket. I had the opportunity to try electrolysis, which I was scared at first, but now glad that I did and will go back to do…
This school is a joke and I'm completely shocked there have not been numerous lawsuits filed against it. Many of the students are so far in debt to the school when graduating they can not get their license. These girls are lied to about student loans and fines when they enroll. They are also made to sign a form saying if they contact a lawyer they will be automatically terminated from the program. That should have been a huge red flag. The instructors are rude and the owner constantly dodges students when problems arise. Do not support this school it is a scam on a major level and needs to be shut down.
money hungry business, end of story – Cameo is fine to go to for a hair cut or color, but if your thinking about going there for school, SIT DOWN TILL THAT NOTION PASSES! This school is a business, and when it comes down to it, that is all that matters to them. They are money hungry and know every trick in the book to get every cent they can out if their students.
Best Year! – This had to be the best year yet!! I loved their free services without a ticket. I had the opportunity to try electrolysis, which I was scared at first, but now glad that I did and will go back to do it again.
Fun! – We loved it! the four of us had a great time even though it was a little crazy, but we expected that. we will be back next year.
Great students – I brought my 2 girls here and we saw more than a couple of the students. They were all very helpful and great.
Fast track – I was able to get in and get my gift card in a timely manner. Please continue the online registration line. I appreciated the "on-line" registration that fast tracked me in!
Much better – Love the gift card! So much nicer than last year. Quick in and out in 5 minutes.
