Testimonials

Jesse Regan

I graduated from Sam Brown's in February of 2010, and I passed State Boards soon after for my license in Cosmetology and Manicuring.

I had a job lined up at Fantastic Sam's hair salon within the week I graduated. I left feeling prepared for the industry, and so far, I've been prepared for just about anything thrown at me. Now I'm living in Osage Beach and I'm perfectly content. You're not going to find a better school or better instructors to teach you just about anything you need to know about hair and nails.
