Student Testimonials

I recently graduated from APCI and am so happy I chose this school for my permanent cosmetics education 💗 They truly care about each student and their success. The entire team is constantly going out of their way to help ensure that we understand all of the ins and outs of PMU. I now feel confident going out on my own because of the knowledge I’ve acquired here. There was a great mix of online and in person training, which made it flexible for people like me who do not live nearby.

Meagan / Graduated July of 2021

Literally the scariest/best thing I’ve ever done for myself and I can’t wait to start! The commute was 3 hours one way and I couldn’t afford a hotel room so I slept in the backseat of my car in the Walmart parking lot. When some faculty members found out they opened the doors to me in their home… I’m not ashamed or embarrassed to tell anyone this and I am in hopes that it will light a fire under someone’s ass to better themselves! All successful people have failed, the only difference is they kept going after all of their fails… never give up on yourself, you’re worth it and you’ll never know what you can accomplish if you don’t try, but more importantly FINISH that one thing you set out to do! Huge thank you to Darren Taylor, Christine Taylor, Cindy Nelson, Cotie Ann Evridge, and all of your supportive staff for helping us learn how to set us a business ourselves and for giving us the skills to do it!
