"I am thankful for the opportunity to come back to school as a woman with two small children. I have made wonderful friendships and had the opportunity to refine my skills in skin care. God has truly blessed me thus far and I am sure as long as I follow the path he has laid out for me, I will work hard to have a fruitful and enriched career. I’d like to thank my teacher Ms Lynn for sharing her knowledge and background in the skin care field. She is full of information and never hesitated to share her skin experiences with us." Nicole Grifo, 2016 Graduate
"During my experience at Shore Beauty School, I met many new friends, learned a lot about skin care and sanitation, developed new skills and overall had a great experience. The staff at Shore Beauty are very motivational and helpful to all students. After my experience here I learned many new things and feel prepared for my state board testing. I feel comfortable going into the skin care field from everything I’ve learned at this school." Kirsten Adamson, 2016 Graduate
