After I graduated from Loraine's Academy, I spent my first four years working for a national chain of massage studios and doing private work on the side. Now I am opening my own clinic which will employ 10-12 therapists. I loved to see the enthusiasm of the staff at Loraine's when I wanted to learn. If they feel you are serious, they will do anything to help you. I have had a very positive experience, and I still go back to get advice on my career path.
I toured Loraine's after their expansion and was impressed by the professionalism and care the staff has. Loraine's is clean and modern. I will not hesitate to send my daughter there when the time comes and I am confident that she will receive a great education in a trade that will help her for life.
Our family has been getting massages and haircuts at Loraine's for about a year and we have been consistently satisfied. The full body therapeutic massage in particular does wonders on my back knots and with the $25 coupon for almost an hour I would highly recommend this service.
Worst haircut in my entire life – I went in to get a trim. The girl who I was assigned to had no clue how to cut hair. She would randomly pick up pieces of my hair and cut. The instructor (who was supposed to be supervising) was all over the place. He complained that he had been working 30 days straight without time off. He definitely looked like it! He did not seem to be listening to the girl cutting my hair or to what I was trying to tell him that I wanted done. He would just stare into the mirror at my hair and move it around with his hands.
The girl sprayed tons of hairspray on my hair, so I really didn't get to see what she had really done to it. After washing it, though, I cried! My hair along the sides and back had been hacked up. I went somewhere else to try to have it repaired, but it was next to impossible. I have learned my lesson & will NEVER go to a beauty school for a haircut. I have been going to AIB for years for facials, and I have never been disappointed. I plan on sticking with them.
Good Job, Loraine's Academy! – I've just graduated from Loraine's Academy and found that they were right...lots of jobs out there! I didn't have any problems with getting licensed, and feel confident in my skills. Staff there was big on giving us all the basics but also the latest and greatest in new techniques. I also had experience with so many clients I feel like I have a year or two under my belt as a hairdresser. cool!
