Austin Kade Academy is a quality school with an excellent administration and knowledgable instructors. I cannot say enough good things about my experience going to school there for esthetics. I feel confident in the skills that I have learned from Austin Kade Academy to enter the work force and excel in what I have been trained to do.

It’s so fun! The staff is great and it’s very family based! We learn a lot and have access to so many different products. We offer so much and get lots of client experience! I love that I am doing what I want to do! I have learned that I am a hands on visual learner and I think being a hairstylist is the best job ever! I get to make people feel beautiful and confident!...
