They do so much more than just preparing you for your state board exams. They help you build habits and character that will last a lifetime and help you in your career and life in general.

    Hays Academy of Hair Design provided me the tools, experience, and opportunity to go out and succeed. Whenever I was feeling down they always went out of their way to pick me back up. They made me realize you can go anywhere in life as long as you work hard and want it They definitely care about their students and it is so plain to see that. They made me feel like one of their own, I can definitely see why they say “Welcome to the family”.

    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.
