La’ James International College (LJIC) is family owned and operated and has been educating students for almost 50 years. LJIC has eight accredited locations in Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Davenport, Des Moines, Fort Dodge, East Moline, IL and Fremont, NE. Students learn in dynamic facilities complete with elite spas.
I graduated from the Cosmetology program here. I love the teachers, school & students. I knew I had to do Massage.
I wouldn’t have gone to any other school. LJIC students and staff have become a whole other family and I’m thankful for each and every one of them. If you’re looking for a salon to go to, or a place to start your Cosmetology, Massage, or esthetics career, La James in Cedar Falls is the best place to be.
I immediately enrolled and right after high school, I started. It’s been an amazing experience. If it’s something that you like to do, then do it. Don’t let other people’s opinions steer you away from what you like to do.
The LJIC environment [students & staff] has made me feel welcomed. I can be myself without judgment.
The opportunities are endless here at LJIC and the tools for success are given to you. You just have to apply them! I love Wednesday and Thursday mornings. We [students & staff] meet to discuss the week ahead and build together as a team.
My advice for others who want to be a cosmetologist would be to just be you. Have confidence, courage, and responsibility. You need to take it seriously and have fun. Just follow your dreams.
I chose LJIC because it gave me more options to learn different areas rather than just hair only. You learn nails, the spa side of Cosmetology and everything else.
I would recommend everyone to come to LJIC because you get to meet a lot of new people and this field can take you anywhere.
