Testimonials

Abby Rhodes

The comprehensive training I received at Sam Brown's Institute of Cosmetology gave me the confidence to accept a position at the Marc Salon immediately upon graduating in September, 2007. Because of the structure and discipline I practiced every day in school, I now have the tools needed to be a great cosmetologist and to build a lasting clientele. I try to show my clients the same personal attention and care that Sam showed me as a student. I didn't just "go to beauty school" at Sam Brown's Institute. I received a thorough education that extended well beyond the fundamentals of cosmetology. I learned how to be a good employee and how to get along with my co-workers. I learned how to provide clients with a truly relaxing and satisfying experience. I learned to stay current by investing in further education and to never give up. It was often Sam's persistence and courage to overcome adversities in his own life that helped me to see my own strength. Not many stylists I have met since graduating can say that their educators were as invested in their students as those at Sam Brown's. This is what makes Sam Brown's Institute so exceptionally unique and impressive. I am so grateful to Sam's mother for the gift she passed on to her son and to Don Vander Pal for his support and partnership of Sam's dream, but most of all I am grateful for Sam Lanham. Grateful for always keeping the fire lit underneath me with his passion for this business and his compassion for all his students.
