"I am attending CSI. There is not true it is the worst school :( I love it and strogley will recomend it! Check around girls all schools charge you if you are not responsibile and like to hang around and miss school a lot. CSI is teaching me how to be proffesional in my new career. I love my teachersm they are so fun to be around and very helpfull. Thanks!"

"I graduated from CSI 2 months ago. I had the best experience ever. I am already working at Vidal Sasson Salon, Chicago. They hired me because of my special training that I got at CSI. Thanks CSI- staff - keep doing what you have been doing! Yes, there are rules and regulations there as all other schools have. Be SMART on what you read is not what you get, depends who wrotte them!"

"This school is the worst possible choice. The teachers are extremly unhelpful as well as unpleasant. The school is very very disorganized and the rules change day by day. Students are forced to clean the bathrooms (toilets included) and all around the school. We were even told to go clean up garbage and cigarette butts in the parking lot. Students have also had to salt the sidewalks. You should not be paying that much money to be cleaning. The school always smells disgusting because the plumbing is messed up, and the toilets are ALWAYS clogged. If you miss a saturday you are charged $100 which you are not told of at the time of registration, and if you show up a few minutes late you get charged $25. The trip to L.A. is false, nobody has ever gone. Half the time there is no shampoo or proper products to use as well. When working on clients, the teachers are very unhelpful and hard to find when you have questions you NEED answered. There is no time to make up hours, which basically forces students to go over contract. Definitely research other schools...this one is NOT a good choice at all and every student there is unhappy daily, even crying.AND if you look up the cosmetology and spa institute on the Better Business Bureau website, they are rated an F with a number of complaints filed against them. Do your research!"

"Well were do i start. It all starts from the moment you walk in the door, false promise after another. Ask me about my free trip to L.A. , That never happened, and when you ask who went it goes silent. Once they got you in the door and your money then you are just another number at CSI. It is sad. Now he has opened a school in Schaumburg. Do not go to this school. It will be your worst experience ever."
