"The W Academy is an excellent school, brimming with talented and enthusiastic students who seem to adore what they do and teachers who provide excellent direction and support. I have had many appointments here, both for my skin and my hair and only have wonderful things to say."
"Prices are great and the students are super friendly. I had a facial done by Amy and she did an amazing job! Amy customized my facial by addressing all my problem areas and actually listening to my concerns about my dark spots and oily areas. She was awesome! The results were outstanding. Best facial I've ever had and it was so relaxing. Anyone who gets a facial here should ask for Amy. She is wonderful and attentive. I am definitely coming back."
