  • "What I liked the most about oTECH Cosmetology was the dedication of my teacher to make sure that we succeeded. She constantly motivated and pushed us to do the best we could, and I benefited a lot from that. It was also nice that we were given opportunities to practice or learn about our newly developed skills through field trips and school events. If you are looking to so Cosmetology, I highly recommend that you take Mrs. Elliott's class. When you give your 100% you will receive 100% in return, and for sure have fun while you do it. Plus, it's nice to know that I will be in a career that can support me for life without having to pay outrageous college tuition, and I can start right out of school."
