Below are testimonials from past students.


I graduated from John Jay Beauty College in 2011 and have been in business for myself ever since. I had been around stylists my whole life who all went to John Jay, so it was the only choice for me.  JJ truly taught me the fundamentals of cosmetology and gave me the foundation on which to build my entire career.   I now have the flexibility & financial stability to raise my daughter completely independently while doing what I love and creating bonds with clients that will last a lifetime.  To this day I recommend anyone wanting to go into this field to go John Jay.  It was the best decision I ever made!

Without a doubt, John Jay set me up for a successful career in Cosmetology. What I appreciated most were the traditional teaching methods that prepared me for yesterday AND today's hairstyling methods and the challenges of each. I will forever be indebted and thankful. They are great educators who love what they are doing and have been doing for over 20 years.

As a graduate of John Jay Beauty College, I'm extremely thankful for the foundation that was taught to excel in my career. Everything John Jay stands on in his curriculum has helped me tremendously in the real world of cosmetology. I walked into a full-blown salon, right out of beauty school, being able to keep up with other stylists that have been in the business 20 plus years. I was able to completely book out my schedule within a year, that's impressive, that's a John Jay education!

I was extremely nervous to leave my previous career and pursue my passion as an esthetician but my time at John Jay Beauty College was nothing short of an adventure. During my time at John Jay I met so many different people from all walks of life and am so thankful for the opportunity I had to network and I felt like that gave me a head start in the industry. My amazing teachers helped me in so many ways to ensure that I had all the tools I needed to start my new career and I am now able to be more creative than I ever could have been in my previous career. John Jay Beauty College has opened up so many doors for me and I am forever thankful for my experience!

My time at John Jay was nothing short of an amazing experience. The level of knowledge and passion that the teachers possess really helped me learn the ins and outs of esthetics and ultimately landed me my dream job right out of school! They were thorough and unique in their teachings and I cannot say enough good things about the program and the staff at John Jay. I am so thankful I chose this college to pursue my esthetics career.
