"I will brag about this school"

I would definitely recommend OCI!  This is hands on training, and that’s the best way to learn.  I will brag about this school

"It was the best decision I could of made for my education."

Ace it/Dual credit student – I have learned so much more than I ever could of imagined here at OCI.  It was the best decision I could of made for my education.

"I can't thank you enough for having me yesterday. It was an experience I won't soon forget!"

I can’t thank you enough for having me yesterday. It was an experience I won’t soon forget!

Everyone was just lovely. Your students were amazing and knowledgeable (considering that they were junior students!) and you could very much tell they loved what they were learning! You’re instructor Lora was just a gem! Her explanation on the 4 different layer forms were easy to follow, the activity was fun, the whole experience was something else! I was quite surprised at myself for learning something- despite being there only for a block!

I very much enjoyed being a student to the point where I just fell in love!

Again, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The opportunity you’ve given me yesterday has given me a new light in the field. 🙂

Take care,
Chantal

"I am very pleased to give you and your school my compliments and especially thank Robyn for her perseverance to achieve perfection with my haircut."

I am very pleased to give you and your school my compliments and especially thank Robyn for her perseverance to achieve perfection with my haircut. She was very comfortable to be in the company of. She is a dedicated and ambitious young woman to be starting on a new career path. I definitely know what that’s all about!

I have always been impressed with the kind, polite service your girls have provided me along with the exact haircut that I request. I wish I thought to compliment your the other girls who have cut my hair in the past too, but this compliment goes to all of you as well. Oh and I can’t forget Glen(instructor guy), thank you too.

I wanted to express how I have seen OCI evolve through the years. The atmosphere is very welcoming and light hearted but also very professional. I feel a part of it comes from the instructors.

"It is over a week since my last appointment and my nails look great!!!"

I have had some very good results from my nail appointments over the past few years.  I have had a number of different girls and all have done a great job… but my last appointment I had a young lady name Karlee.

It is over a week since my last appointment and my nails look great!!!  The color, application and shaping are really the best job I have had from the OCI trainees.

Please express my appreciation to Karlee, and let Carolyn know she has a great student.

I will be looking  forward to having her do my nails again in the spring when I return from my winter away.

Thanks Again
