“The level of service at Long's School of Cosmetology is fantastic. Having been a customer for many years, I am consistently impressed by the professionalism of every staff member I have come in contact with. Thank you!”

“In this day and age, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. Long's School of Cosmetology was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work!”


Attending Long's School of Cosmetology was one of the best decisions I made in my life. When I first walked through that door I was scared. I was thinking "What am I getting myself into? I'm not ready for this." I showed up my first day with my tail between my legs. Everyone was a stranger. Before I knew it I was out of my turtle shell and had blossomed like a flower. I had grown into shoes of a totally different person. And I love that person now. Without attending Long's and the great help of Loree Long-RobertsBritanee Stivers, family and friends I would not have made it where I am today. I have achieved all of my short term goals that I never thought were possible. Thank you so much guys. I don't know what I would've done without you!...K Willson

Attending Long's School of Cosmetology was the best decision I ever made! Having such small class sizes made us all more like a family than just owner, instructor, and students! It's more than just a school to learn how to do hair, it's a sisterhood! I couldn't imagine where my life would be without the support of a great group of friends, sisters, family! Loree and Britanee are the best people I know and they will support you through all of life's ups and downs, but they will also push you to achieve your true potential! Thank you both so much for that!....C Burkeybyle

This school was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I started as a nobody and by the time I had graduated I had opened up and grown into my own skin. I had confidence and I knew that I was given a gift that not everyone gets at such a young age: a career and true happiness in doing what I love to do....K Roberts


Business owner and Long's graduate Neil Ward has a tip for cosmetology students:

“Students can add to their class training by interning at a salon. They can perform tasks like answering phones, schedule appointments or shampoo for free. That is a great way to learn about the industry and make some contacts from those already working in the field.”

Congratulations to Danna Andreas for being selected as one of the top three stylists in the Wabash Valley according to the Tribune Star Readers Choice! Danna is a Long's graduate. Read her quote below to find out why her customers voted her as one of the best:

“I remind myself that clients in this business owe us nothing, so it’s up to us to provide great personalized service.”

Cathy Long - Lexcel Salon & Spa

“When hiring stylists, I look for good-hearted people with open minds and a will to learn. In addition, I often have them do a demo cut to evaluate their technique.”

“Get good at using your mirrors, which can be a great tool. Many things will reflect backwards, so get used to that.”

Morris Tomastic - Hair Machine

"I was self-taught in some areas of hair already, but my cosmetology schooling really helped me with various hair cutting techniques. Hair coloring also became more involved and I learned a great deal about the chemistry of color at Long’s.”

Mario Smith - Eclipse

“If you give someone an amazing shampoo, they will remember that.” CATHY LONG - Lexcel Salon & Spa

“Long’s was a great place for my schooling because it was not only affordable, it allowed me to learn all aspects of cosmetology.“ Neil Ward - Stylist & Business Owner — at Medusa's Hair Salon.
