What Our Grads Are Saying

I toured multiple schools before Tenaj Salon Institute, and I’m so grateful I enrolled here. This is THE premiere cosmetology school to attend. The educators taught me the skills necessary to be a successful stylist behind the chair, and I’ve been promoted three times in less than two years thanks to the technical and business skills I learned.

Tyler Sponaugle, Professional Stylist and Admissions Advisor

I am so grateful I chose Tenaj Salon Institute for my education. Working on live guests daily gave me the opportunity to see the potential of growing a business and four years later I’m now a salon owner!

Somer Roth, Salon Owner & Professional Stylist

Each day, we were told we could be successful, it helped me expect more from myself, and I’m just so thankful for what TSI did for me personally and professionally.

Erin Mills, Stylist for Stella Luca Hair Salon

At TSI, I learned professionalism. I try to make every client feel like they’re No. 1 when they’re in my chair. The skills I learned are also a little bit more advanced because TSI is good about educating its students on the newest styles and techniques to keep us one step ahead of everyone else.
