    After graduating high school I was looking for an amazing school where I could start my career. I toured at Hays Academy and it was the perfect fit for me. After starting they soon became family and I created amazing relationships with fellow students. Hays Academy provided a great learning environment to create a foundation in skills that I will carry with me to the salon. In the past year my life has changed for the best and it is because of my experience at Hays Academy.
