It has honestly been Great being a part of Xenon Academy. I transferred from another cosmetology school half way through my program because I found that Xenon was more about teaching ethics and professionalism not just as a school but as a business. I have learned so much more than I ever imagined being here from all of the educators and having multiple programs to consider. I want to thank all the educators for teaching and coaching me with all of their professional knowledge in this industry. I will be very successful now that I am a Xenon Graduate. I highly recommend Xenon Academy in Grand Island Nebraska and Omaha.
