Here at Shear Ego International School of Hair Design I discovered my passion in life. The atmosphere here is so warm and welcoming. The staff was extremely helpful and supportive in every aspect of my education and career. After completing both the cosmetology and nail specialty programs here I can honestly say I love what I do am well prepared to begin my career in this industry! Shear Ego rocks!" ~Lauren Deisenroth - Hair Stylist & Nail Technician " I loved the nail course. The nail kit I received was amazing, with top of the line products of OPI. Every day was exciting to learn something new and be able to have hands on practice with what I was being taught. Also, having the support and guidance from my instructor was reassuring and the entire staff was so supportive and encouraging which meant a lot to me". ~ Andria Gibbons- Nail Technician
