Success stories of our students

Hi my name is Adrian Jimenez, I attended American Beauty College Barber and I have to say it has been the best career decision I have made. ABC has a great Barber program and great beauty school instructors. They will teach you the real art of barbering from classic haircuts and shaves to facials. Again, I have to say ABC is a great school and they definitely prepare you and make you ready for the barber world. Thank you, American Beauty College. Because of your support and education, I am now making my barbering career a reality and so far have been very successful at “Chaka El Barbero.”

I started going to America Beauty College in 2011, right after I graduated high school. I have to say, this school is absolutely amazing! Between the friendly and helpful staff to the clear, and concise curriculum, ABC welcomes you to so many opportunities that other schools do not. They give you a great understanding of the industry from hands-on demonstrations to state board exam readiness. If you show up to school, give it your best efforts, and focus, there is no way you can fail. My success after American Beauty College has been amazing. I have gone straight into working in my field and building up my clientele. Thank you, ABC!

Erika FreemanCosmetology

American Beauty College focused very much on the state board exam preparation, in order to ensure our passing, and ultimately receiving our barber license! There was never a dull moment in school, which made every day exciting and new. While at school I started a mobile barbering business and plan to grow further with that endeavor. Currently, I’m working at Dave’s Barber Shop, a family business for over 20 years. ABC helped me to prepare for my career, and I’m very excited to be starting my own business. I would’ve never had the freedom and the love for what I do without ABC.

My name is Marco Sanchez. I graduated from American Beauty College February 4th, 2013. I am lucky enough to say that I am the 2nd Student to sign up for the Barber Program before there was even such a thing and 3rd to graduate! It took me a year and a half to finish, but it was definitely worth it. Sometimes it’s a struggle coming to School every day and doing the same thing over and over. But the truth is, nothing in life comes easy, so let me be the first to say that it’s for a reason, and hard work pays off. If you’re lucky enough to attend ABC and have had a great barber instructor as I did, then it should be a piece of cake. Since I’ve become a licensed barber I’ve worked at 3 different barbershops, and finally landed a full-time Job at “Calicuts” in the city of Upland. Who would have thought that only a year after being licensed, I’d be as busy as I am! I’ve been so blessed to be in the position that I am in. I am forever thankful for ABC and this profession that has chosen me. I will continue to pursue, and push my barber dreams into a reality.

My name is Christian Abad, I am 24 years old and I work at a successful barbershop called Gold Rush Barbers in Pasadena. The road to success wasn’t easy, but thanks to American Beauty College I was able to get to where I am at now. The instructors at American Beauty College were such a great help, one of the things that they told me was “If u think of yourself as a $5 barber then all you will ever be is a $5 barber, but if you think of yourself as a $100 barber then you will be a $100 barber”. The instructors are very motivating and as long as the student wants to learn the instructor will push them to their limit. I want to give thanks to everyone at American Beauty College because without their help, I would not be working at a successful barbershop in Pasadena that has been voted top 10 best barbershops in Los Angeles.

Ever since I can remember I have always been interested in cosmetology and in 2012, I decided to go to cosmetology school and chose American Beauty College. I enrolled in a full-time Cosmetology program, which I completed after one year. I chose to study at American Beauty College because as I visited the school, during an open orientation I found the students and staff very welcoming and friendly. I also appreciated the school curriculum and found the passing state board rates appealing.
Now as a licensed cosmetologist I am currently working for a company called Amazing Shine Nails Inc. As a Pro Artist. I attend various trade shows around the world and educate students and professionals about all of our amazing products. I’m always traveling, and I really enjoy it. In one month alone, I visited Australia and South Africa!
I love my career and I really couldn’t ask for more. To everyone who is interested in the beauty school industry, This is the best school, and it surely has helped me find the career of my dreams. Thank you, American Beauty College!!

My Name is Art Colomo, I graduated from American Beauty College in August of 2014. My experience at ABC was something I will always keep with me. The school showed me how to make money, by opening my eyes to other parts of the beauty school industry other than just Men’s haircuts. In short, they made me a more well-rounded professional. Since I graduated from the ABC, I started working in El Monte. The education I brought with me has definitely helped me enjoy success along the way. I re-enrolled in ABC as an Instructor Trainee, I feel my experiences can be an asset to the upcoming students, and I also believe in this industry I can never stop learning.

When I first came to ABC I was interested in cosmetology, but I didn’t know anything about hair. Since I have been here I have learned so much. The owners and staff are down to earth folks, always willing to help you every step of the way.They are all very professional and have made this a very welcoming environment. The instructors are very educated, understanding, and always eager to share their knowledge, always making sure you understand the material and take the time to work with you. We have a lot of fun at ABC, but we work hard too. I am very happy I enrolled here. I love my school. I highly recommend this school to anyone who has the desire to learn. Their doors are always open, just walk on in and change your life.
