It's the only beauty school that I know of in Richmond. It's my dream to do hair. Would that school be a good school to attend? I would really like to avoid a drive to Lexington everyday.
Thanks.

I'm starting there in september, its 5500 for the full tuition of 10 months, but you have 12 months to complete the course (thats what the contract gives you) this includes hair, nails, waxing, everything, then you have to pay 500 or 600 for all of your supplies. or you can do just nails for like 3500.

Do you like it there. I have heard good reviews and bad reviews.. The people who hve been there to get hair cuts are always complaining but I understand it's students doing it.

I got my hair washed cut AND styled for only 15 bucks and the girl that did it was good at what she did... she got confused over the layers that I wanted but instead of chopping away she went and got her teacher and my hair was awsome

I had one girl ruin my hair there and even her teacher said it was good. I had to leave and come back and the second girl was in shock. I left very unhappy and ended up having to cut my hair off to a very short cut. It all depends and plus you have to realize its students. I knew what I was potential getting but thy have to learn. I
Do think they need an updated facility and would love to see some fund raisers or something so they can get better equipment

Misty, sorry however it is a school, I agree...fund raise away, I attended and graduated from there. Melissa, owner, is very nice. The teacher is amazingly awesome and I would take the last shirt I owned to lay down on a puddle for her to preciously step over, that is how much I adore her. It may not be the best school around, but I will tell you like it is. It doesn't matter what school you go to because they are all going to teach you how to pass the state boards...that is their job. What matters is, who you decide to apprentice once you get out of school. That is the big deal. Get with someone who is good and will teach you all the tips and tricks, the goods. Now, with that in mind, do you really want to spend the money to drive to Lexington, take out financial aid that you WILL have to pay back sometime in the future and on top of that the school in Lexington charges triple price than the one in Richmond because they do accept financial aid. I sucked it up, paid the bill for Richmond and have not once regretted it. I have met most of my besties there and have had the pleasure working with some of them and still hang out with my friends from there. It was small enough that we became a family and the teacher and owner are very very dear to me, I loved them so much that I would make them chili on a regular basis just because they loved it. I will stand behind ESHD for an eternity. It may not be all the luxury your looking for in a school, but I promise you, you won't learn anything different and you might make you some pretty decent friends out of it, all while saving a butt load of money.

Oh and you won't be done in ten months...you have to be superwoman...or superman to finish in ten months...normal time is around twelve to fourteen months. All this is full time also, if you have to go party time, it's even longer.

I am to the Paul Mitchell in lex and it is worth the money. I am going more detail in hair cutting, nails, facials and even learning how to cut men's hair. I am getting way more then basic "passing the board." I think you have to consider quailty over price. I actually received two different scholarships as well. Don't settle and really do yor research. Look at the drop out rates and completion rates.

I think eastern could be better if they had more instruction and would upgrade. If you know someone is not there to learn ask them to leave. I started out there a while back and left because of the lack of quailty and teaching. I am sure they could do fundraising or the owner could put more money into the school. I wouldn't not go there because of that. I really would love to see a great hair school in Richmond where they could expand on

I'm sorry...but that is totally not true..you go to Paul Mitchell, you pay for the name...I have a friend that just graduated from there...they were taught nothing about waxing, nothing about mani/pedis, nothing much about facials. And from what I've seen from her, they've not taught much about cutting.
I graduated from ESOHD back in 2005 and passed my boards, which is all that matters. Every school teaches you the exact same book, you learn the basics. I love Melissa and Mary Lou, which is no longer there...but they are great teachers and wonderful people. I honestly think that the Paul Mitchell school brainwashes students into believing that they're a better school because of their name. That's bs. Don't waste money and time driving to lex when there's a great school in Richmond. Eastern School of Hair Design.

it is still in the same place, it is an amazing school, certainly not for those who think they are too good, people who think that should go to Paul Mitchell, anyways it is amazing! The teachers are very flexible with you're schedule, no it is not the prettiest place in the world but it is filled with love and the teachers absolutely love what they do so that makes a huge difference, it is more relaxed there and you do learn everything you need to know as long as you pay attention.
