Testimonials

Bruce

I attended Sam Brown's Cosmetology & Barber Institute in January of 2014 and graduated in early November. Since my graduation, I quickly joined a salon and have been rapidly able to improve on the skills I've obtained while at Sam Browns. My experience there was positive and challenging which helped shaped me to become the stylist i am today. I have future plans to return and get my barbers crossover license and eventually to open up my own barbershop and salon. I would like to thank Sam Brown and his staff, as well as all my fellow classmates and clients for the positive experience to better me into a successful stylist. Not only am I proud to say I attended Sam Browns but also that I am what I am today because of his devotion to teaching and helping each of his students succeed.
