What Our Professionals in Training Say About Us

I just had the most fantastic hair experience with student Shegofa and instructor Jason. They were both so attentive and did an outstanding job of my shampoo and style. Jason is clearly a remarkable teacher who loves what he does and inspires his students! I’ll certainly return. I can’t say enough good things about the treatment I received. Thanks again.

I am a student at NIWE academy currently in the professional aesthetician program and am enjoying it so far. My mentors Jessa and Liz are very experienced and helpful. They make coming to class a lot of fun. I also am enjoying all the hands on work and practice we do because it makes it much easier to learn concepts. Overall, I think it is a great school and a good program to join.

I took the permanent make class with Liz, she has been the best mentor for a course I have taken. She is very knowledgeable and shares her past experiences with us to help us to succeed. She was welcoming every class we had and helped us when taking models/clients. I can’t wait to continue to learn from her and have her as mentor moving forward!
