“Starting in classroom, (the instructors) laid down the foundations of who I am as a stylist. During my first few days at VICI, I quickly understood what the expectations were regarding attendance, time management, techniques and – most of all – state boards. I am so thankful that VICI instructs their students the same way proctors exam individuals during state board testing. Every student that I have known has passed state licensing requirements with flying colors. I am grateful for VICI and the people that have helped me establish the passion and drive I have for this wonderful industry.” – Karaline
“VICI helped prepare me for my salon job in a few ways. Obviously, for one, all of my hair cutting, coloring and styling skills. I had already felt a little more advanced in my training with my first salon job compared to some of the other newer stylists hired on at the same time as me. VICI also organizes their clinical (on floor training) up at school to be comparable to a regular work day at a salon; from scheduling, to timing, and even duties at the end of the day. VICI also gave my classmates and I the opportunity to shadow a few salons, which helped show me what I did and didn’t like about a few salons I shadowed, and what I wanted to look for after graduation.” – Jennifer

There are four reasons why I came to VICI:
1. Great Education
2. The Awesome Instructors
4. The Atmosphere.
I feel like I am getting the highest level of education. There are so many outside activities to get involved in such as open houses and orientations. They provide everything.
I looked at many different schools and interviewed at numerous ones. But when I walked into VICI I knew it was the best in the area. I love all of the teachers, they are great. You will have a good time and a lot of support from the staff. VICI is one big family, everyone knows one another and you become part of that family.
Hair has always been a great passion of mine, and when I knew Cosmetology was the career I wanted to pursue, VICI Beauty School was the first thing that came to mind. Not only was it the most well know cosmetology school in Milwaukee, it was highly recommended to me by fellow students.
The staff is so helpful. You are able to get hands-on training, and occasionally guest artists come to help you advance your skills. I am very pleased with my decision. I knew from day one that this is where I wanted to be, and every day I am here proves to me that I was right.
Attending VICI Beauty School was one of the best decisions I have ever made. There is a team atmosphere and instructors are very helpful and approachable.

When deciding where to go to beauty school, and researching other schools and what they have to offer, there were no questions on why I chose VICI. Right away you learn the basics of hairdressing and what to expect on the salon floor. The hands on experience and knowledgeable teachers are great, especially since you are new to working with hair. On many occasions, Mr. Rushing came into our class and taught us for the day, where else would the owner of the company take a day out just to teach you men’s hair cutting!
I feel as though going somewhere else, I wouldn’t have gotten the same experience.
I always felt VICI Capilli Salons were cutting edge and knew the latest styles and trends, going to their school I would get the same education. I felt very prepared on the day I graduated.
