We have all wanted to feel happy, proud, beautiful, radiant, and just gorgeous all at once and forever more. Blades School of Hair Design is outstanding, certified, and qualified and surely recognized either by appointment or just walk in the door. Its easy to be beautiful according to how you feel, but when others notice it that feeling is so real. “Blades is the Real Deal”

Kenny Bowman

My experience at Blades has been amazing! I was nervous my first day but seeing how welcoming everyone was I felt right at home. The teachers are awesome and very helpful. They are always there for me when I need them and reassure me when I’m questioning myself. I’m grateful to be part of such an amazing school and would recommend Blades to anyone who is interested in starting their cosmetology career!
