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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 graduated from the Cosmetology program here. I love the teachers, school & students. I knew I had to do Massage.
