Success Stories

"I tell Empire students that the key to success in cosmetology is super simple. Find a big dream. Identify it, then surround yourself with people who bring the best out of you. Avoid people who say, 'You're a dreamer; you can't do it.' Get creative and find another dreamer. Plus there is one more ingredient: hard work."
