“It takes a lot of work to be successful but the rewards are great! Learning all I could at school, from my instructors who were amazing and patient. I can say now I am very good at what I do. You have to possess the confidence in your abilities and have skills to back it up. AIB taught me to have both the confidence and the skills to make my dreams become my reality. Thanks AIB.”

-Full Specialist

“I love my career and I’m so thankful AIB helped me achieve my dream of working in the Beauty Industry . I loved working with all the makeup, and learning everything I could about Skin Care and Nails. Lots of hands-on training. Instructors were fantastic. AIB is a great school. Thank you all for your support.”


– Cosmetologist

“Hi I’m Meagan,
I loved going to school at AIB. I was like a sponge trying to absorb as much as possible! I always knew I wanted to be a Cosmetologist and I was determined to get it done! My instructors were fabulous and so knowledgeable. I had a job immediately after graduating and I love going to work every day. Don’t ever give up on yourself…if you want it bad enough you’ll do it!”


– Barber

“Well, it’s been a long ride but I came out of all of this with confidence and ready to achieve my goals. Attending AIB St. Petersburg Barber Campus was a great learning experience with great staff. 1200 hours was a tough goal with the busyness of my life (baby, wedding, etc.) but thank you all for your support! I DID IT!”

Reviews from Our Students

  • I must say this has to be [one of] the best nail program/beauty schools of all times. Ms. Mare is overflowing with information, talent, and skill. If you want to learn from the best you must find the best come to American Institute of Beauty.

    - Trisha S.
  • I highly recommend attending AIB (Largo Campus). I graduated from the cosmetology program in Dec 2018. I’ve never met an amazing group of individuals (administrators/instructors/directors) who care so much and will do anything to see each student reach their goal to success.

    - Christina R.
  • Amazing school! I do part-time night cosmo and I’ve learned so much in such a small amount of time. Great atmosphere, surrounded by smiling faces. Instructors are awesome and Mr. Luis will teach you all you need to know when you get out on to the floor. Definitely would recommend this school to anyone!
