This school is mostly a self study from the books we receive and a few initial lecture. We are always short on supplies or are out completely of several of them. We are not on track with the program. Program is mostly for high schools students, not grown adults Our kits are a joke, and we get information for 5 minutes on every new treatment and no supporting material You can get yelled at by an Educator, bullied by several students, buy many supplies that were not covered in 10,000 tuition. Plus anytime there are questions no one can answer until tomorrow, and tomorrow never comes...LOL.
Best Salon Experience!! – After reading reviews I was nervous about trying this salon but I just decided to try it out. It was the best experience I have ever had at a salon. When I go to Salons the beauticians listen to what I say then don't ask how I like it as they starting cutting my hair. At Xenon my stylist continued to ask what I wanted if I liked It and whether there was anything else he could do. They explained why I couldn't do something due to the fact the way my hair was colored in the past. It was the greatest experience I will go there from now on. They were friendly and very willing to work with you.
Uninspiring, Unprofessional, Unprepared – My first impression of Xenon was unimpressed to say the least. As a cosmetologist of 20 years, I felt uncomfortable with the unprofessional demeaner of the whole staff. No one said hello, smiled or asked if I needed any help. In the beauty business it is important to look finished with make-up on, hair beautifully colored, cut and styled, nails maniqured, an example for the students. None of that! After waiting for twenty minutes for an appt. with the school director I was shown around. The school was dirty, unorganized and lacked any semblance of fashion or style. A short observation to a class in session was disapointing as the instuctor was unprepared to teach the subject and had to ask the Director for answers. I hate to think of the differance my education would have had on my career if I would have graduated from a school like this.
Best staff & educators ever!! – I have also worked at XENON. I started at the front desk, dealinf first hand with clients and students. Yes, there are times when everyone gets a little frustrated including the students. None of those times were ever about the price of the education they were receiving or the cost of the "kits". Xenon does not make any money on the kits. The school purchases these kits for the students to have while in the program, and to keep after they graduate. The kits come complete with every single tool you would need to complete any service. Xenon does follow proper procedures for any new hire including all tests. As long as I have worked for Xenon it has been a great experience. I have had many opportunities to forward my career with Xenon. We have an amazing group of instructors & staff. The educators have the passion & drive to help these students suceed in this industry. The students are absolutely incredible. They work very hard to get where they are. Xenon offers a great program, come check it out for yourself!
