We Love Our Students & Clients!
The barber students are really nice and down to earth, as well as knowledgeable and talented. They take their time to make sure your haircut comes out looking good. Got a fade and it looked really well blended and smooth transitioning throughout. Definitely will be coming back.

When I got there I had a plane black hair style. But when they finished... it was the most gorgeous hair style I’ve ever had.Ricardo Carrasco was super nice and professional all the time.
01:35 08 Mar 20
I’ve been coming here for the past 6 months or so. I love it here. The staff is really nice and helpful. I was afraid of coming here due to it being a school, but they have the teachers look over and make sure your hair is on point. This is a great way to try different hair styles when you’re on a budget and gives students a chance to learn and grow each time you go. Highly recommended.
23:57 04 Mar 20
I've taken my kids here for haircuts multiple times and each time they are very good about making sure I'm satisfied with the look. The price is right too! I recommend bringing your kids here!

The warm welcome the receptionist gave was a great first impression. The instructor (Annette) was very hands on and helpful. The two students ( Stephanie and Jasmie) who rocked my hair, were very fun and polite and only needed minimal instruction. I felt like I was in good hands, the second I walked in the door. I'll be back again soon, thank you!
22:03 25 Jan 20
The teaching staff is friendly and helpful and the students are professional and know what they're doing. Would definitely recommend!

Lucero is an amazing stylist. She’s fun to talk to and a good listener and makes getting your hair done enjoyable. I did have to come in a second time to do the color since here wasn’t enough time during my appointment but we were able to work everything out and overall a very good place to go. The cut was VERY affordable.

22:08 23 Nov 19
I love my new color amber was great
19:04 23 Nov 19
I loved the students that worked on me but the instructors gave me anxiety... I'm so baby smooth! I love Nicole and Angela! Made me feel super comfortable even with my severe low self esteem, they also didn't appear impatient though I'm sure they had to be...
06:25 21 Nov 19
(This has my husband's name..lol.) The service is very friendly and Cassidie took her time to understand what I wanted with my hair. The instructor was readily available to supervise and answer questions. I really like the end result!

Great place!! Mi eyelashes awesome! Nice job Ricardo Carrasco you are the best 😁
20:10 15 Mar 19
Great service, loved my 7 year olds hair cut! Can you say dapper??? However, the students smoke in the parking lot right in front of the school. Kinda tacky, in your car or on the side of the building. I saw at least 4 students and instructors smoking and all I could think was please don’t be the person helping me.
01:06 13 Mar 19
Awesome place with a very cheap price of $5. That’s a bargain for the great cut you’ll get there.
19:23 23 Feb 19
Marina and her instructor did a wonderful job!!
22:11 13 Feb 19
Went to get a cut and color and could not have had a better experience! Angela was thorough and patient with me and my questions. We went from dark brown to light ash blonde and she never got discouraged! Would definitely come back!

Ana solis helped me to achieve the hair goal I was going for. I wanted a full on pink hair, but she suggested a pink balayage & it actually turned out better! The workers there are all so chill as well. I recommend this place for anybody. I love my new hair due! Thank you American beauty academy & to my hairstylist Ana!
19:30 09 Nov 18
All i can say is WOW! What an experience it started off when i walked through the door and was greeted by Kaitlin the wonderful receptionist, whom promptly got me checked in and seated with Linzie. Once seated i knew right away that Linzie was the cats meow, she went the extra mile to make sure that i had exactly the hair cut i wanted and even applied some moisturizer to my face! Linzie transformed me from a frog to a handsome prince!
04:04 08 Nov 18
The haircut was really clean, shout out my man diego

03:02 18 Jul 18
I've had a great experience here! This is a great place to go to. The instructors are very knowledgeable and quick to respond to students questions. At some schools I've gone to in the past, there has been a long wait for the instructors because the ratio of instructors to students. And the instructors were constantly checking everyone's work. It was wonderful. I could tell how much they really care. I was very impressed with everything and everyone. Otilia did a great job with my hair! It looks gorgeous! It was her first full weave too! Color is striking! I'll definitely be back!
16:39 17 Jul 18
