What Our Students Say


Feedback From Past Students

Paige Workman – Mendenhall, MS – “Everyone wants to shine. The MIANC has given me this opportunity through their outstanding knowledge in the field of cosmetology. The amazing instructors provided me with the confidence and skills I needed to succeed not only as a student, but as a professional!”

 Teresa Rahaim- Hattiesburg, MS – “After working in Radiation Oncology for 17 years, and at 40 years old, I decided it was time for a career change. I spent months researching schools in my area. Upon my first visit at the Mississippi Institute, I knew this was the school for me. The staff was so helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. I knew that I would get a quality education.    I always had an interest in skin care. At Mississippi Institute I found I have a PASSION for it!  At times it wasn’t easy driving the 100 miles a day or leaving my 3 children and husband, but the staff at the Mississippi Institute always lifted me up! They were instrumental in getting me through those tough days. Thank you Mississippi Institute for giving me the start to endless opportunities, and for giving me a career that I look forward to going to everyday!”

Whitney Kleppelid – Ridgeland, MS – “I love that learning in class didn’t feel like a chore.  It was always a blast. And though it was a very professional environment, there was always fun waiting around the corner. The instructors never left our side and when I had a question I was never afraid to ask.  The people of MS Institute are responsible for the professional Aesthetician I am today. “

Jennifer Sluder – Brandon, MS – “My learning experience at Mississippi Institute was one of the best experiences of my life.  I studied Esthetics and learned so much about it. The teachers at MS Institute were always willing to help whenever I needed it. I never felt like I couldn’t come to them about anything. I feel the curriculum offered, in addition to the staff, at the Mississippi Institute has made me the great esthetician I am today.  While in school, I met people that became like family.  The part that I love the most is that I can still call the school if I have any problems or questions and they never make me feel like I am an inconvenience to them. They continue to help me to this day. If anyone asks me, the Mississippi Institute of Aesthetics, Nails, and Cosmetology is BEST school you could attend to begin your professional career.”

Mary Johnston – Ridgeland, MS –
“ I really loved attending the Mississippi Institute because they really push you to do the best you can and to be the best cosmetologist you can be.  And to know that someone believes in you and cares enough to push you and drive you is a great feeling! After speaking to other cosmetologists about their education at different schools, I can honestly say that I am proud to say that I attended the Mississippi Institute.  I believe that anyone who wants to be a successful cosmetologist in Mississippi should attend the Mississippi Institute because you are not going to get that kind of education anywhere else!!”

Anna Thames – Fulton, MS – “After being enrolled for two weeks at another school, I felt the quality of education was not as I expected. I heard about The Mississippi Institute of Aesthetics, Nails, and Cosmetology and decided to transfer based upon the staff and their level of experience. It was the best decision I could have ever made.”

Robin Lewis – Crystal Springs – “After many years of traveling with work, I decided it was time for a career change. I decided that I wanted to go to work in my husband’s hair salon as a nail technician.  I knew I would have only one opportunity to reach for this goal.  Therefore, choosing the school with the best ratings, instructors, and support system was important to me.  One day when my husband’s salon was being routinely inspected by the State Board of Cosmetology, he took the opportunity to ask the inspector which of the schools had the best overall rating for nail technicians.  The answer was “the Mississippi Institute in Clinton.”  Without a doubt, my decision to attend the Mississippi Institute was the best for my career.  Not only did I receive the knowledge and skill to pass the state board exam with ease, but I was given encouragement and support to be successful in my business.  In addition to my successful nail business, I have qualified to become a part-time traveling educator for a leading nail product supplier.”

Lisa Dickerson – Hattiesburg, MS – “As a woman forty-two years of age, the thought of returning to school with my twenty-three year old daughter and living one hundred miles from home four days a week was intimidating.  The Staff at the Mississippi Institute was very welcoming.  They assisted my daughter and I in every way, from directing us around town to reaching out to us and letting us know that they were there to help us in any way while away from home.  I rank the Mississippi Institute staff, from the admissions department to the instructors, among the elite.  Each and every instructor is very well informed about the latest fundamentals and technology.  If you are considering a career in aesthetics, nails, or cosmetology, I sincerely recommend the Mississippi Institute.”
