I just graduated from AIA part time program and have learned a lot about skin care, advanced machines, chemical exfoliations, and much more. I loved everything we did here.

Don't waste your money going here! The economy doesn't support this career field. Only 2 of my classmates are actually getting by in the field and most aren't even practicing esthetics because the job market is so bad for estheticians. The teachers have a tendency to treat you like you're not an adult or bill paying/tax paying citizen. They can be controlling, belittling, and disrespectful. They can squash your dreams. Or atleast they attempt to. This school was an absolute waste with unprofessional instruction. Oh, and if your a pretty woman, your definitely in for 11 months of H-E- double hockey sticks with these ogers! Larry is a doll and everyone else is nice except for the instructors. You will learn alot of great things, but it's not set up for you to have a life outside of esthetics so you can not work or even really have enough time for your family going here. Which puts you in financial mess and then when you get out you will not have a job, so there's more financial mess. Very bad decision. If your going to get a service there, its very reasonable and the students are great at what they do, but dont enter this career field.

This school has amazing facilities. Everything is modern and clean. The school has a very good reputation. Tuition is more than other schools, but is probably worth it. Hands-on experience prepares students for the real world. However, J.C. in admissions is the only drawback for the school. He makes false claims about the school and tells bizarre personal tales that contradict what he said just a few moments ago. The school does not give out information and requires you to come in for an in-person meeting. I spent 1.5 hours a meeting with JC asking the same question over and over before he gave me the answer (that he knew before I stepped into his office). AIA is probably a great place to come for treatments and an amazing educational opportunity. However, I will not return for either only because of JC. Two other people who met with him also found him to be a poor representation of the school.

The facials are unreal for the price. I have had several at this location and they do a superb job. They have several to choose from. Book early and look on their website for coupons every now and then.

This place is the best bargain in town. You can get a European facial for only 45 dollars! And if you use a Kroger plus card you can get 10% off. The students are closely supervised by teachers. The only downside is you will get your facial in one big room rather than a small private room. Still, with lights down low and the quiet atmosphere, it's not bad. And the price difference between this and a traditional spa is huge! I would never go back to a full price salon, because they do such a great job here.
