I went to Empire beauty school @ Manhattan. I really didn’t want to do hair I wanted to do make-up and I was told they have make-up classes ! THIS SCHOOL DOES NOT TEACH ANYTHING ABOUT MAKE UP when I was going , but now they have a good standard teaching of make up since I graduated February 2018. The experience is worth it and the staff is great !

I've been trying to get to this location for a while now, and I finally made it. When I first came to New York, I visited the Empire Beauty School of Queens to get my hair flat ironed. It was a great experience and I enjoyed the student who finished my hair. So, when I decided to years later to get my hair re flat iron I knew I needed to check out the beauty school closer to my apartment in Harlem. the West 34th Street Building might be a little hard to find if you aren't really looking for it. I didn't see any signs that said anything about the beauty school, I was actually across the street when I looked over at a building and saw there were hair dryers on the second floor. Once I scanned the street a little better I saw the giant 22 on top of a very dark and slightly confusing stair area. Once I walked over to the door there were multiple students who were talking about a hair job that they might have been doing for class. I knew I was in the right place instantly. There's an elevator and stairs that lead up to the second floor. If you are someone who needs a wheelchair, this location might not be the best for you. The elevator is very small and opens awkwardly. One of the students does require a weird year though and she is able to use it greatly, just be aware of the size. The beauty school closes at 2 p.m. and reopens at 5:45 p.m. for their student salon and I arrived somewhere around 5:30. Though I was slightly annoyed at the 15 minute wait it wasn't a big problem. It took about 2 hours for my hair to be flat ironed, I guess I had extra length that I didn't know about, but it came out greatly. The student who did my hair, Rita, was a very nice person it wasn't too talkative. all of the students at the beauty school were also very kind and walked over every now and then to congratulate Rita on her amazing job. if you're coming to get anything done to your hair, the students have to wash it by New York law. There's signs everywhere for that and the wash is about $9. All in all though it's a great job for a really great price.

Went in today for a wash, blowout and cut/trim. I go on vacation in 2 days and didn't want to spend tons of $ for something that was going to get wet in 3 days. I wasn't expect much from the stylist being that it's a school. It turned out amazing! SHOUT OUT to stylist BEVERLY Crawford. 👍🏾👏🏽 My trim/cut is better than most salons I've been to. It's flowing and healthy looking. I was there a long time but I knew it would take at least twice as long as going to a licensed hair dresser, no issues here with the time. And the price was so cheap it's unbelievable.....I'll be back for sure.

Great experience. The haircut I had took a little time but looks Great! Many thanks to the stylist (Star), and the instructor who was on the floor guiding and overseeing at all times. Can't wait to go back for color!!

I don't even know where to start... I went in today for a cut and color. Let me start with the color. The color turned out well, the teacher and student helped me pick out a good color, because I was a little uncertain of what I wanted. The only problem was they started dying my hair and they ran out of dye and had to make two additional bowls of hair dye, so what was suppose to be a $25 color turned into a $45 color. And it wasn't until they had started dying my hair that they told me I was going to have to buy more dye, so I really had no choice. And to be honest all of that would have been fine had they not royally messed up the cut. Which they did and a good dye is nothing if you have a horrible haircut. I showed them a picture of what I wanted, which was suppose to a trim and long bang. They took off a little more than I would have liked with the trim but even that I can live with. What bothers me is the student who cut my hair, cut my bangs to the middle of my forehead. And the student and teacher acted like nothing was wrong. I understand that this is a school and mistakes will be made, but I cannot fathom this student ever being taught how to cut bangs. She had no clue what she was doing. It was so bad, that I ended up having a emotional breakdown in the bathroom. In fact it's hard not to cry every time I look in the mirror. I spoke with the teacher and asked her if she could fix it somehow and she said there was nothing she could really do. Her and the manager said I should just wait it out for a few weeks and "it wasn't that bad". Not only are the students not prepared to work on clients the teachers aren't prepared to console clients whose hair has been messed up. They just try and convince you that it's not that bad. Part of me feels like I might of been okay with a sorry and a refund. But I got neither of those things. Also they said they would straighten my hair to try and make the bangs longer and then charged me $3 for straightening it. So I was charged $60 and I have to wear a hat for the next month. SUCH A BARGAIN. Basically don't go here if you're getting any sort of complex haircut. The students aren't prepared. You won't leave there feeling good and confident like you should feel leaving a salon.
