What Our Grads Are Saying

What can I say? I attended TSI only a year ago and it is one of the best institutions I have had the pleasure to study at. The educators are caring and loving while providing the structure and discipline needed to succeed in the beauty industry. Always sharing lots of personal experiences and reassuring us that we are not alone. They are passionate about seeing their students excel and go to the next level in their careers. TSI has undeniably helped mold me into the stylist I have become today.

Keyana Solomon, Stylist at Salon Jaylee

People should go to Tenaj Salon Institute if they want to get the best education possible. Not only will they learn the technical skills to become a Cosmetologist. They will also learn how to present themselves, what to expect in a real working salon even before they leave School. I have also made some of my best friends at TSI, which I will treasure forever, it was such a great experience, and I can’t speak more highly of the School.

Emily Canto, Stylist at Cloud 9 Spa and Salon

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

I chose TSI not only because one of my friends went there before I did and recommended it, but because you learn so much hands-on, and I think that’s the best way to learn in our industry. To jump in and do it. I was not just practicing on a mannequin all day.

Savannah Zuk, Stylist at Surface Salon

When I walked through the door I was speechless, the school is absolutely gorgeous, the atmosphere is uplifting and fun, and it literally looks like a huge salon! I enrolled without even thinking about it. TSI completely changed my life, the education I received was phenomenal.
No I go to work each day and I have fun, I create art, I make people happy, I make myself happy. I love making people feel beautiful and it all started because TSI gave me the proper education and instilled in me how amazing it is to be a part of this industry.
