I recently went to Marinello's for a manicure and a pedicure. I realized a student would be doing this service, so I was not expecting the same job I get at a salon. The young woman, Alex was clean,neat, and professional. She was slow, but deligent, and stopped a couple of time to ask help of an instructor. The final job was good (and only cost $20 with tip). What I did not like, was the filthy floor, messy and clutter throughout, sloppy appearance of alot of the students. One student was doing a pedicure next to me (on another student or friend) and was laying flat out on the floor. Tools were not sterilized (the tub my feet were in was only rinsed), and since the students have to buy their own, not of professional quality. Teaching someone to do a job, is only part of the process, teaching them to do it well and professionally is key to their success. When a woman goes to a salon, they want to be pampered, not only by the hair or nail tech, but by the atmosphere. Alex will rise above the negatives of this school, becaused she already possesses the personal qualities she will need. Others, the girl on the floor, the girl in sloppy sweats, the one that reeked of cigarette smoke, may not . Marinello's need to run their school like a professional salon, while teaching students their trade.
"WOW", what a surprise, I have been to the very best spas in town and I was told to try Skyway Beauty Academy because they had a very nice day spa and the students were better than most of the pros out there that charge four times as much! Well I was a bit cautious to try a school but WOW! was I so very surprised! I have now found my new day spa. The student Esthetician was such a professional, better than anyone I have EVER had. I now have my husband coming with me for his back facials and he loves it! I haven't tried the cosmetology or manicuring students yet but I plan to! I'm sold on this place, can't beat the prices!
