Student  Testimonials

“I asked around for cosmetology school recommendations and everyone said Beyond the Basics was the best. I’m glad they did, because my experience has been very rewarding. The product educators are very informative, the hours are flexible, and the instructors are great.”

-Shannon Dinwiddie, student



I chose this school because I love the fact that they are flexible with hours and payment plans. Also, I came to the school before as a client and was always happy with the outcome of the services that I got. Everyone was so nice and aimed to please, and I knew that was the place where I wanted to continue my education.”

-Nichole Mitchell, student



“I toured the cosmetology school in Springfield and local areas, and Beyond the Basics is the most friendly, welcoming school I toured….Amy is a very family-oriented instructor who makes you feel at home, yet provides the best skills that a cosmetologist could have, making you feel confident in what you do: making people look and feel the best they can, and feeling confident when you graduate that you have a bright future ahead….”

-Jessie Long, student



“You aren’t just another student at Beyond the Basics. Amy and Carol find your strengths and weaknesses, and work to develop both to make you the best stylist you can become. Once fundamentals are learned, you are taught to work with clients, and give them the exact style that they want and leave them feeling beautiful, which is the most important thing.”

-Kellie Ford, former student, instructor



“Beyond the Basics School of Cosmetology was a great choice for me. I have talked to people that chose to attend other cosmetology schools, and a lot of them felt they were not instructed properly. I definitely do not feel the same. BTB had great hours, and was very compatible with my family life.”

-Kendra Benton, former student, salon owner



“I checked out local schools and found that Beyond the Basics was the best fit for me. Everything I learned at BTB gave me the confidence to get the job I wanted at Ashley Lauren Salon.”
