“Debutantes School wasn’t only a great learning environment but it was a very outstanding experience. Everything I learned to actually begin my career I just want to take this time to appreciate everything that you guys have done and thank you for helping me pursue my dream!”

“If it wasn’t for Debutantes I wouldn’t be the stylist that I am today!! I’m so blessed to have been able to attend cosmetology school there and learn from the wonderful teachers and staff! Debutantes made me confident in my ability to do hair and nails and I’m so grateful for that! I recommend this school to anyone considering going into the field of cosmetology!”

Mackenzie, Cosmetology

“Going to Debutantes School for Cosmetology opened my eyes to a whole new career mind set. I graduated from Cosmetology and decided to go back for Esthetics and I’m so glad I decided to do both! My Esthetics teacher Scarlett was amazing from the books to hand on teaching. She definitely prepared me for the real world of being an esthetician. Not only did she prepare me to be the best I can be but to be better than what I already am. Going to Debutantes School was a great experience from the amazing teachers to making amazing friends. Thanks to my awesome Esthetics teacher again I’m doing what I love to do! I can definitely say I learned from the best!”

Monica, Cosmetology & Esthetics

I am so thankful that in my search for a Nail Technology school, I ended up attending Debutantes School. If I had to name one thing I appreciated most about my education, it would be that Debutantes created a learning environment where I was both challenged in the classroom, but also allowed to explore new techniques and develop a sense of who I was and what I liked as a nail technician. Between a thorough curriculum and caring staff, I graduated feeling confident in my abilities to take on the nail world. I’m forever grateful I found such a wonderful school! Thank you, Debutantes!
