“I am writing this review because I find it very disheartening that only people that have negative things to say usually post a comment. I'm here to do the opposite. I've been at salon success academy Upland campus since February. I am in the cosmo program and a current student ambassador. I have had the best experience here. To be older and now getting to do something that I love and to come and be accepted was more than I could ask for . I have built lifelong friendships and have met teachers that I have come to admire. Anywhere in this world is going to have its ups and downs but it's not as bad as some say. I have been acknowledged when I do a good job and I have received constructive criticism on what to do better next time. If you're following the rules and doing what you came here to do then you will have no problems. The things that I have learned at this school will definitely make me a successful stylist when I leave. SO THANK YOU SALON SUCCESS.”
