barbering Program Student


Barbering has been my dream job, more so now that I have been a part of the MKG barbering program. I enrolled at another school a year ago and the learning experience was slow and the instructors never gave 1 on 1 attention. Materials were at a bare minimum and the personalities were horrible from both instructors and students. But here, I'm comfortable. The instructors make the time to focus on the entire class or just one individual. I have learned so much more than I thought I was. The Techniques for every service is explained to me in a way I can understand. The environment and personalities make me want to come in to class more than anything. I'm appreciative for the chance to learn and work with excellent barbers and cosmetologists. I look forward to continuing my education with MKG and its exemplary services.
