Grad Testimonials

During the past year I have been at Total Transformation Institute, not only has it taught me how to be a better cosmetologist, but it has also taught me how to be a better person in general. This school has taught me how to be my own person.

- Kailee, Class 2019

I have learned numerous different services that I am now able to perform on clients. I loved the step-by-step procedure guides for performing many different massage techniques during the facial. I have become a better leader because I'm in a position where I'm continually learning. I plan to continue to grow as an esthetician with advanced educational classes.

- Julie, Class 2019

Being at Total Transformation Insitute I have had to learn it all! After a time, I realized that I have a passion for excessively curly hair. I'm extremely happy with the decision I made because I learned that I absolutely love doing hair. I could have gone anywhere but their curriculum is amazing and the teachers are very knowledgeable. I am confident in the communication skills I developed to be successful.

- Madison, Class 2020

I've learned so many things at the Total Transformation Institute and doing the things I've learned here has really been life-changing. From all the different types of future stylists, clients, and great teachers have made me really love cosmetology. I have grown, learned, and conquered. I am confident that I can do any tasks that are thrown my way, all because I have the knowledge and skill set that was taught to me. I am prepared for the real world!

- Cierra, Class 2019

My experience at Total Transformation truly changed my life. I not only know how to work with all kinds of hair, but thanks to the Nuts and Bolts business class, I learned how to build a clientele, boost my revenue and build client loyalty. I couldn’t have asked for better instructors or a better learning experience!
