What Our Grads Are Saying

Five years ago, I went to TENAJ Salon Institute, and it was one of the best decisions I have made for myself. A lot comes with being a hairstylist, it’s not just doing hair. It’s being social with people, building trust, and teaching your clients what their hair needs; all while making great money doing it & ensuring you have steady business. Because of that aspect, I loved TSI because it helped me learn all of that, as well as achieve goals in my personal life. Within 4 years of being at Salon Jaylee, I jumped the level system 4 times, was able to purchase my own home, travel, buy a new car, and build an amazing career. TSI truly helped myself & my career flourish. I couldn’t be more thankful!

TSI gave me the skills and knowledge to enter the beauty industry fearlessly. The moment I walked through the doors I knew I was in the right place. From the atmosphere to the aesthetic, Tenaj Salon Institute was the beginning of a new future. The education and staff definitely set the bar high. The hands-on training gave me the experience and confidence I needed to start growing my business as soon as I entered the salon. I am grateful for all the education, support and guidance that I received during my time in school and the support I continue to receive from my mentors.

Megan Shaw, Stylist at Salon Jaylee

To say TSI is the best cosmetology school around is an understatement. TSI had prepared me to start my career in the real world, full of great knowledge and confidence within the beauty industry. I cannot thank all of the amazing educators that TSI has that have helped me along the way. The amount of hands-on education training help me feel like I was ready before I even entered the salon. I couldn’t be more grateful for TSI to guide me with all their support and made the stylist I am today!

“I knew nothing about hair! At TENAJ not only did I learned, but I realized that mistakes lead to success. Don’t fear anything, pray about it, and start over! At TSI, you will treat real people. You are completely trained for the real world!”
