Regency Beauty Institute - Complete waste of money

Posted: 2014-03-26 by    Viviane.s
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
The regency program at the Darien /Downers Grove campus is nothing but a waste of money. Of course with any school there will always be pros and cons but in this case the cons unfortunately outweigh the pros. I wish someone would have informed me about all this before I took the program and that is why I am writing this review .The very first thing I have to point out which is quite sad is a lack of professionalism . These educators are supposed to be licensed cosmetologist yet don't know what there are doing half the time. Yes, I do learn but only from a select few. The floor manager Topi...

Regency Beauty Institute - Racial Discrimination, horrible staff, bad experience, and WASTE OF MONEY

Complaint Rating:  75 % with 4 votes
This school is the most misleading school I have ever had the horrible experience of deal with. They say oh its hard to get into this school and I thought i accomplished something so great when I actually got accepted. Turns out ANYONE AND EVERYONE will get into this school as long as you have the money to do so. Don't waste your time folks! I felt so out of place here in El Paso, the instructors as well as the students made it a point to speak spanish when they knew I did not, I was literally the only white person in this school and they made sure that I knew it. I felt so discriminated against...

Regency Beauty Institute - Ohio, Columbus - Unprofessional

I recently attended this "institution". My time there as a student only lasted a few months. Okay, let's start from the beginning. During the tour everything is all cupcakes and sunshine, and they talk "up" everything in there school. "We're nothing but professional" "incorrect behavior isn't tolerated" "we only accept students that are the best" yatta yatta. It seemed like a great school so I enrolled. My first day was alright, except that there was a fist fight outside between two students. (Seriously, I'm not lying or exaggerating....

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I went to the salon for a appointment, while sitting under the hair dryer, the entire inside of the dryer fell down on top of my head. I informed the instructor on duty and she told me that regency has no money so there is nothing they could do about it. I ask for a accident report, which at first I was denied, but after informing the instructor that he had to supply me with one, he gave me one with a attitude. I have never heard from any one with this company concerning this matter. Not a very good experience....

I currently attend regency and have very good attendance & academics. There are soo many bad things to say about this school I don't know where to begin. Let me start with broken equipment for about 2 months now. They are a joke. When you do a campus tour they are sweet as pie but when you are working on a client and have a problem they are no where to be found. My rotation has 26 stations with 46 students. We have to work on our manikins at a manicure table because there is not enough stations for everyone. When you get your first clients and you are nervous and its busy, you are pretty much...

Regency Beauty Institute - Wisconsin, Madison - Terrible School

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
I am a current student designer at this campus. I work hard, have a 99% grade average, and good attendance. This school does everything possible to knock me down and discourage me. Between an extremely careless campus manager and inconsistent and un-qualified "educators", I come home every day feeling like my dream of being a cosmetologist isn't worth the hassle. Our school is overcrowded, riddled with fights, and money hungry. Today, a student was jumped in the parking lot by other students' friends. The campus manager didn't even call the police. Sickening behavior by...

Complaint Rating:  67 % with 3 votes
I have never been so mis treated and mis understood on financial aid and or my grade and attendance. This school has tried to screw everyone over on the week of their graduation saying you owe this much more money. They also do not care about your physical cosmetology education what so ever so I would love to know what my $18, 000 went towards. They are busy following you around the school and playing cops and robbers with you.

My wallet was stolen from this school as well as keys. And nothing was ever done about it. I felt so betrayed looking at the person and still to this day am...

Complaint Rating:  92 % with 12 votes
First let me say that they have not terminated me, I am not even on probation. I am considering withdrawing at this time to attend a different school. This school is set up to make you fail, I have seen many good students be termed over being absent; while constant behavior problem students are allowed to stay. They don't care about that, all they care about is if your attendance is 80% or better. Most recently a student that I know was terminated with an academic score of 97% and a 79.9% attendance. Another overcame being terminated only to get the boot again a week after being back because...

I was fine with this school until recently. I am at the Greenwood, IN campus, and there has nothing but lies going on there. My progress was great and so was my attendance, but one day they have this lady from corporate come in and tell us that how Regency has been putting in your progress is wrong, and that they were breaking state law by not having us complete all of the live model requirements. That suddenly we had to have all of our live model requirements and that even if you only had a month or two left that was not their problem or fault. We were in a uproar. Sure, there is drama there, and...

REGENCY BEAUTY INSTITUTE IS THE WORST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVVVVVVVVER HAD IN MY LIFE!!!
I went to school there and I did graduate, so I know first hand how rotten of a place it really is.

There is no consistency, most (not all) of the instructors are ignorant, cannot cut or color hair, and/or cannot read.
IT IS A JOKE!
they pack the classrooms as full as they can to make as much money as they can but fail to teach any sort of use full skills to students because there are just too many students in the classrooms!

Regency Beauty Institute - Ohio, Dayton - Quality of service & rudeness of Instructor

On Friday February 25, 2011 I called Regency Institute in Dayton Oh to schedule an appointment for hair service. My requested student was unavailable, so I requested a few others and they were not available either. Once I arrived at Regency I realized that I ha gotten the students names mixed up, and the student I requested was there and available, so I asked. Sarah the Instructor if the student could still do my hair? Sarah replied no because Ashley was already entered into the computer. Since I was pressed for time with a very hectic week I went ahead and let Ashley relax my hair. After Ashley...

Regency Beauty Institute - Indiana, Mishawaka - This is an exception to the term

Complaint Rating:  91 % with 11 votes
I am doing a review on the Mishawaka, IN campus. My experience has only been for the past 2 weeks, so maybe I did not see enough to be fair. But from my perspective, this is it:

Regency had actually contacted me because I had shown interest in beauty school from some online forum. I would only have a week to get financial aid processed, but they were VERY helpful and expedited the process. I met with the charming campus manager for about 2 hours to discuss enrollment. She already had paperwork ready for me.
My first day: We get our "$1200" kits. I ASSURE you, that...

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 6 votes
Regency is the worst school by far I've ever been to. From day one I have always had issues with the damn place.

It all started with the financial aid department. When I had enrolled, they told me to fill out my FAFSA, turn in some papers that they sent me over email, and then everything would process. Later did I find out that they had not told me everything I needed initially. For about 4 weeks this kept going on, they would tell me oh you didn't turn so and so in, so I would turn it in, and another day they would tell me that Iwas missing something else THAT THEY NEVER...

I am a current student at Regency and been only 5 months to learn nothing but their a scam. I looked into transfering and they told me I could if I pay them $7900 for 465hours completed.

If I get to finish because they want let me graduate owing them the $7900 and will be paying the...

Regency Beauty Institute - Illinois, Aurora/Naperville - HUGE SCAM

Complaint Rating:  86 % with 7 votes
Regency sucks. I have been wanting to do hair since I was little. I have considered doing other things and I still do, but I love doing hair and nails. I thought Regency looked like a good school to go to and I felt like after meeting with the campus manager that the teachers really cared about everyone succeeding, but I was very wrong. There is one teacher at the Aurora-Naperville campus that I can say complete good things about, another teacher who I learned from but has no business teaching if she can't get her attitude right, and the other teacher picks her favorites. No one ever explained...

Regency Beauty Institute - Arizona - Shame on Regency Beauty Institute

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 12 votes
From a young age I have had a passion for the beauty industry. After high school I decided to enroll in cosmetology school. I did not know much about schools in the area so I asked around and toured several schools. They all lacked a sense of professionalism and looked like something straight out of the 1980's- bad perm and all. After some consideration I decided to keep my options open and try and find another school. This is when I found Regency.

I found Regency Beauty Institute online and scheduled an appointment to tour the school. The location that I planned on touring...

okay, so, i went to regency to get a perm, i wanted a body wave; loose waves, barely even curls, and i have poodle curls, and damaged hair. i even went back and said this isn't what i wanted, and the teacher said oh no, that's a body wave. they're obviously stupid, and i read online that the perm rods they used are way too small, they used purple ones and were suppose to use black ones, if you don't know they're color coded. i will never everrrr go back. and my cousin got a perm also. naturally she has curly hair but it's just got so used to being straightened that...
