“So blessed to have found this school! Everything about this school is amazing! This is truly a hidden gem! Want a great education, and graduate debt free? Come to international!”

Jamelle J, Fruitvale, Oakland, CA

” I am now licensed in esthetics and nail technology ! I highly recomend this school to anyone, especially single moms like myself. Thanks icoc for your support!”

Anna W, Alameda, CA

“Great School, very hands on, gives you the opportunity to become an independent artist.”

Nisa M, Oakland, CA

“This school is a hidden gem. The esthetics instructor Vanessa cares about her students and is very organized and knowledgeable. Many of the students that I have met in my esthetics program own salons, work in salons or are experienced in threading, sugaring and makeup. This has exposed me to the various options in the industry. My classmates are down to earth, humble and supportive which is not always the case in “beauty school.” Overall, if you are looking for an affordable program and don’t believe in going into debt to get licensed, then this is a great option. Lastly, the flexibility makes it a great fit for people who are working. Check out this great program!”

Tami Blake
