Going to Mitsu Sato Hair Academy really prepared me for my future career as a professional hair stylist. I was so advanced in many aspects of hair services. Not only did I learn beyond the basics of coloring and cutting, but I learned how to conduct myself on the running of a business thanks to the â€śNuts and Boltsâ€ť program. In my first year out of beauty school, I have retained more than 70% of new clientele. I am enjoying my success and want to grow more, thanks to the best training I received at Mitsu Sato Hair Academy.Nina Anselmo, Graduate

Mitsu Sato hair academy is a one of a kind school. They taught me precision cutting techniques, as well as the art involved in cosmetology.

As part of very first class at MSHA I can say with confidence that Mitsu and the other instructors gave me the best foundation for starting my career as a hair artist. I didnâ€™t realize at the time that Mitsuâ€™s cutting techniques would put me above the curve in the work place, and also help me understand what I would learn in my continued education. I am so thankful to have learned from such talented stylists, and I owe thanks to them for making me a success.Beckie Tuttle

The stylists Iâ€™ve met that have graduated from the Mitsu Sato Hair Academy have more advanced skills than anyone Iâ€™ve seen at that level in my thirty years as a salon owner. Iâ€™ve hired two past students, both of whom are eager to advance their already acquired skills. Mitsuâ€™s long lived reputation has proven itself; he runs a great school.Gene Hendren, Owner, The Salon, Plaza
