All of the reviews on this page were written by staff members of the school, i went here and can speak for a lot of people when i saw that this school is horrible, the instructors are rude and play favorites with the students, other instructors have quit due to the amount of drama that goes on in the school and on account of the instructors bad mouthing the students behind their back and its a dirty out dated facility that robs students of thousands of dollars by charging them to be absent. The financial aid councelors are con artists that will prey on people who dont understand financial aid and would NEVER recommend this school to anyone. Be aware.
I attended David pressley and I can confidently say that all those great reviews for this establishment are fake. I have never met a student that liked David pressley. We were treated like five year olds and our instructors were on power trips. The owner rips off the students and the average overage in absent fees is approximately $2000. If you clock in two seconds late from lunch, they send you home. If your shoelaces aren't black, they send you home. If you didn't answer one question out of 50 on your homework, they send you home. Every hour you aren't in school, they charge you. The clients are treated horribly and I would never recommend this place. There are instructors that have never even worked in a salon and totally mess peoples hair up.
I am a student there right now and I couldn't agree with this response more..it is horrible...everything that is said is true and more....the favoritism and the lack of professionalism from the instructors is a joke...the owner not even a cosmetologist herself, make a ton of extra money by the rules that student get sent home for every little thing. I thought that I was entering an adult atmosphere instead I get grade school, just out of high school myself, my teachers never treated us as poorly as these so called instructors....the instructors are a joke....they are all friends so if one doesn't like you then none of them like you and they let you know it and feel it...they are not grown up enough to keep it professional .....I don't know if I can last much longer in this place...IT IS A JOKE....you pay to be treated like a child..
I've been coming to this particular beauty school for some time now for a variety of services ranging from haircuts to colors, perms and sets, cholesterol treatments, facials, manicures and pedicures. When I visit this beauty school I usually get "The Works". There is nowhere else I have ever been for these type of services that is anywhere near as reasonably priced (in fact downright bargains considering the time and attention you receieve) as here. Every student (and instructor for that matter) that I've had contact with have been incredibly friendly and accommodating. What I love most is how they truely treat my like a VIP. It is the MOST relaxing, soothing time that anyone could ever hope for in a wonderfully caring environment. I will continue patronizing this school as I think they are the BEST beauty school in this state. I have tried many others as well but will keep coming back here. I would even rate this particular establishment above the Pressley-Royal Oak one primarily because I think the facilities are more spacious and everyone is always so welcoming. I fully intend to do my part to keep them in business. THANKYOU !
As a David Pressley graduate, I have nothing but great things to say about this establishment. The staff provides a fun atomosphere that keeps you wanting to come to school day after day, from the administration personnel to the instructors, they are all equally there to help you. I have been a David Pressley graduate for almost a year, and can honestly say this school's name is very well known, and is often a key point noticed on my resume. I would suggest stopping in and seeing what this school is about. My time at David Pressley was very beneficial, and the time just flew by, as I learned, my creativity built and I grew as an individual. I aquired so much knowledge that my career was a giant step in the right direction, the day I hit 1500 hours. Thank you so much David Pressley- downriver campus for making me the cosmetologist I am today.
So i didn't have much money, and a friend suggested me to david pressley school......she said it's cheap and they do a GREAT JOB! I was a little nervous but i went anyways...........I LOVED MY HAIR!!!! The best updo i had ever had :) i paid 30 dollars and looked great!!! I will def go back and tell everyone to go Thanks for making me look good
I was a former David Pressley student at David Pressley, Taylor location. It is a very welcoming atmosphere and the whole staff made me feel right at home. I learned so much while I was a student every teacher really cared about my education.. along with all the other students. I would DEFINITELY recommend this school to anyone, you wont regret it!
the treatment the students receive from the staff is ridiculous! One minute you're the favorite, the next you might as well be bum on the street. There's no telling from day to day how the staff is going to perceive you. If you don't walk in the door as one of the favorites of the school, you may as well quit.

I disagree with the other review. as a former student myself, I feel this school was definitly worht my time and money. I left feeling prepared for the field and was able to gain my licensure and find employment in due order. I think anyone considering this trade needs to consider the fact that any school consisting of that many woman together that many days a week will have some drama, but for the most part the staff did their best to keep things professional and focused on education.
