I enrolled into the aesthetics program at Federico Beauty Institute as a part-time student in late January 2015. Let me tell you, my experience at Federico was no where near my past experience. It was amazing! Everything and everyone has a flaw somewhere. No one and no thing is perfect. If Federico had flaws, they were so MINOR. I've heard people get offended or upset about certain things like having to walk 250 feet from the parking lot to the back entrance, cost of the courses, or not having enough makeup courses (etc.), BUT they probably haven't been to a "hoodrat" school like I did. They don't understand how Federico goes above and beyond than the other surrounding schools. I'll tell you about the ways that Federico EXCEEDED my expectations and why I'm a proud Federico graduate: The facility: Federico is the biggest beauty school in America. The facility is HUGE and clean. Each program (cosmetology, esthetics, and barbering) has its own training area. The Barbers and Cosmos have their own classrooms and areas to get some hands-on practice and their own client floors. The esthetics program has two classrooms, a huge training room (8 beds, 8-1 multi-function machines) where we learned our hands-on material, 7 private rooms for client services, an overflow room with 6 beds for clients, a wet room (spa capsule, Vichy shower, and hydrotherapy bed), and a spray-tanning room. The lobby is clean, open, and inviting. The beauty boutique is packed with effective, must-have professional products. The Café is on campus. It's convenient, inexpensive, and delicious! The staff: The ladies at the front desk are so nice and helpful! The staff at the cafe are awesome to chat with. The staff in the office are so patient, kind, and helpful. The esthetic teachers are amazing educators. They only want what's best for you. In the short time spent for the program, they become your respected mentors. The entire Federico staff aims for your success and nothing less. There is not one staff member that made me feel as if they didn't care or wanted me to fail. The staff cares so much about the students. They're not like other schools where once you're done, they're done with you and are on to the next. The school provides alumni with opportunities for job placement, advanced education, and resume building Finally, the education: I feel CONFIDENT. How many people can complete a beauty college program and say that? I haven't met much. I've had in-depth theory and thorough hands-on experiences. After completing the esthetic program, I feel very able and confident to perform: Basic and more advanced facials, chemical peels, electrical facials (galvanic, indirect, and direct high frequency), body treatments (body wraps, solar bronzing, spray tanning, and body retexturing), and waxing (hard and soft wax). These educators will not lead you wrong. We are provided thorough step-by-step protocols. Every single day is planned and its posted up on day one so we can easily know what to expect and prepare for it. The educators are experienced and help us UNDERSTAND what we are doing. We are provided a ton of opportunities to learn. Wrapping up my lengthy review here, You get you what you pay for and more. I paid $1,500 for a "hoodrat" school and I got $500 worth of education. While others might say that Federico is on the higher priced side, look at what they offer. Look at the opportunities you have! I made the mistake of going to a cheap school for one license and I'm glad that I didn't make that mistake for my second one. I'm leaving with confidence in esthetics. If you're looking for a beauty college, schedule an appointment with Serena or Bobby and get in for a tour! You'll fall in love and you won't regret it. ;)

I was a barber student at Federico. The only reason i gave this school any stars is because they get you well prepared for the state board exam. Other than that, the school really doesnt care about the barbering program (or at least consistently makes it seem so). If you're looking to enroll in the cosmo program, this school is for you! But if you're looking for barbering, trust me, look elsewhere. Please dont judge a book by its cover like i did. The school is aesthetically pleasing on the walk through. But once they lock down your money, thats all they care about... Your money. They cant hold on to any good barbering instructors because even they cant stand all the BS that goes on at the school. I was there for one year and i had 5 different barbering instructors come and go. Only two were there the whole time i was. And one of those left right after i did. Please dont go to the barbering program here. I am now a licensed barber and i am embarrassed to say that i went here.

I went to Federico's for a hair cut on May 9, 2014. I was nervous but Maribel did a wonderful job. She trimmed up my uneven, short hair and helped cover the areas where no hair was growing. I will definitely be going back and I hope Maribel will be there to help curl my hair. It was a positive experience and I will be going back.

I attended the barbering program at Federico Beauty Institute and it was an AMAZING experience! I say this because I had a very clear path and plan of what I was going to accomplish and what I expected out of the program. I graduated in 10 months because 1.i came to school 2. I wanted to be a student ambassador (those extra hours helped) 3.i came to school!! (see the pattern lol) I would recommend Federico to anyone who is interested in HAIR! you may think that the grass is greener on the other side, but guess what, you'll still have to mow that other grass ;) my success was made by myself with all of the help of my educators and staff. You get out what YOU put in :)

I will be taking both of my girls there for a wash, press, and trim real soon. So far with speaking to a representative over the phone, my experience has been pleasant. We'll see how they can handle black hair. I've seen one example so far, and must say that I was very impressed that's why I am willing to give them a try. Price is affordable, THANK GOD, because the price of black salons.....this sista cannot do. Update coming soon😌

A really positive experience! The stylist was nervous but competent, and I thought the educators were kind, patient and positive. Great hair cut at an outstanding price. Thanks so much! We will be back!
