I am currently a student at AIB and I am in cosmetology Phase 1 and my educator is a great teacher! I love the way she teaches. She explains the chapters in her own words so the students comprehend the lessons more in a clearer way. The school is very well organized and have a lot of great teachers. Miss. Kris is the teacher for cosmetology Phase 2 and she is amazing doing hair and she has a lot to teach. It is a great school with lots of opportunities to learn and grow. I definitely recommend looking into it if you do want to study here and if you want to do any type of service as a customer I highly recommend it as well.~Ari M. Cosmetology Student

I am a graduate from AIB. I learned a lot there and the staff is eager for you to succeed! I’d like to make a special shout out to Mr. C for giving me the knowledge and the tools to succeed. Because of AIB I am now a licensed barber. I’d strongly recommend AIB for anyone who is pursuing a career in barbering, cosmetology, nails and skin care.~Connor N. Barber Graduate

My wife, Kanpakkaya, owns a business in Microblading. Her customers kept asking her if she could do facials and other cosmetic services so she enrolled at AIB for Esthetician. From Admissions to the Facility Administrator, we were treated like VIP and there was no hassle getting her enrolled. Being that I had many of the services provided to me on multiple occasions, I was able to see how the students interacted with each other and the teachers. All three of her teachers were amazing. They demand effort and promote teamwork amongst the students. The school uses excellent products. The coursework was easy for my wife to take in and understand being that English is not her first language (Thailand). If you’re seriously looking for a place that will train you well, build your confidence and prepare you for success, I wholeheartedly recommend AIB!~Steve D. for Kanpakkaya T.
