What are our graduates saying?!?!
I’m so thankful for you helping & being a stepping stone to OWN and be able to work in a salon ! You gave every tool I needed to be successful - down to the state rules, vendors, mistakes you made & how to avoid them!!! Every time I had a question - you were right there to guide me!!!! I feel like I owe my success to you - you helped me problem solve & understand that it was easier than I thought to have my OWN salon! I’m so thankful for this course!!
I recommend doing any masters class or coaching course she has. Lexie is so professional and very helpful .The course is totally worth the investment. She incuded professional headshots for my brand and i've never seen anyone do this. She makes this learning process easier and most of all quick. If I could give her 10 stars I would.
I took the virtual braiders licensure course. The class was very informative, especially the lessons on hygiene and disinfecting your tools. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to expand or start their hair business.
