Student Testimonials

These are just a few comments from our students about the fantastic education they received at the Sherman Kendall Academy:

“After I had finished high school at East Hollywood High, I was looking forward to starting my schooling into becoming a cosmetologist. I had looked up to many stylists who had attended and graduated from SKA and after I had a tour of the facility and learned more about it, I knew it was the perfect fit for me. I loved the faculty and the relationships that I built, as well as also fulfilling my dreams of becoming a licensed cosmetologist. SKA gives you the basic tools you need to start your own journey into cosmetology. The Master of the Arts presentations were amazing and inspiring, as well as weekly special guests. Instructors are very helpful and hands-on with anything you find yourself struggling with and they are always willing to help. Overall, I had a great experience attending this school and would not change a thing! I would recommend it to anyone out there wanting a career in cosmetology. I thank everyone at SKA for such a positive experience.”
