I've been to numerous salon schools in Las Vegas and destination academy is by far the best. Not only did my hair come out exactly how I wanted it to the service from everyone there was awesome. I had a dark brown color applied and this was the first time ever leaving a salon that there were no hair color markings on my face. Fantastic prices.

* I came to the Destination Academy back in 2007 to get my hair done for my anniversary. I was a little hesitant at first having a Cosmetology student do it but made the appointment and went in. BEST DECISION I could have made. I absolutely loved my hair and the girl who did it. The school seemed more like a salon than a school (from the styling chair anyhow). I was treated as if I was some sort of VIP at a fancy spa. I walked out of there with pure confidence and got nothing but compliments on my hair. This girl who did my hair at the academy was so friendly and I fell in love with her. After she graduated I continued going to her to get my hair done and it has been over 5 years. Also, I had such a good experience I looked into and ended up going to the school :) I enrolled in the Esthetic program and loved every minute of it. We covered any and all information that was required from State board and got so much hands on experience while I was there. When it was time for me to graduate I was equipped, full of knowledge, and ready to go. I felt like I was prepared for anything and could not be blind sighted by anything that any Spa or Salon could throw at me. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anybody who asked.

Destination Academy is absolutely the best of the best when it comes to a salon experience. The service is profession and the staff is exceptional. I wouldn't go any other place for hair, nails or a pedicure.

The Academy at Destination is a great place to go if you want to get your hair or nails done for super cheap! They are students so the prices are good, and they actually do a wonderful job! I was very happy with the way my haircut turned out. My stylist was super nice and made me feel very relaxed. I got my nails done as well, and they look FABULOUS. Can't wait to go back! I would recommend to anyone.

Yes, there are "Guest Speakers" about 3 to 4 days a week they are only there to try and sell you something! This place is a joke. The owner is sweet till you sign the dotted line then she turns into something much different after that. Seriously, this school is not a place to go if you want to learn how to be a stylist!

I would definatly recommend Destination Academy for up and coming Hair stylist. Not only is it a great school but you recieve a amazing education!! You get hands on experience as well as Guest Speakers from around the area giving you tips of the trade!! I also liked the fact that they are willing to work around your schedule.. I'm a mom and have a crazy schedule so I needed flexible schedule and the Enrollment advisors were willing to help me in any way they could so I would be able to start a new career in Hair Design.I would recommend Destination Academy to anyone wanting to start a new career!!!

this school is very unorganized. They have a lack of staff. There is no nail teacher, and only one licensed esthetic instructor. . the moral at the school is so low, how can you even learn in an environment like that. there are far more talented schools in las vegas.

DO NOT ATTEND this shool if you want good education and no headaches!! I quit this school after a couple of days because they were so unprofessional I could not even belive it. After you pay for the tuition they don't care about you anymore, they have no time for you. The kit was cheap stuff and mine was missing several items which they still not replaced. It's been three months that I quit and my money is still with them, I paid in full so they owe me more than 10 thousand but they would not do anything. I filed a lawsuit and they got served by a company weeks ago. Guess what they are so unorganized that the owner of the school did not even know about the lawsuit. Also they say that they only use Redken products but I saw cheap shampoo and conditioner under the shampoo bowls that made me very sceptical too. Just the whole experience with these people is awful and don't wish it to anyone. They even charge extra money if you miss school on saturday or if you miss school on a testing day. Why??? I don't know. There are tons of things these people don't do. And they do so many things against the contract we signed!!!! DO not even consider this school, what you see is not what you will get!!!!

Look no further these girls are great, the location is great, the salonis very clean and proffessional. The prices are so so cheap yet you walk out feeling like a $$$$ million bucks! If you refer a friend you get a free haircut & style too!
