Our Successes

School was great. I left feeling prepared for a career as a nail technician. My instructor was awesome and I’m grateful for the experience.

William Edge Institute really prepared me for not only my state license exam but for the real world.  The advanced training that I received was amazing.  The school was a lot of fun and I feel very prepared to enter into the world of beauty.

Finding a school to accept the hours I had earned previously was a challenge, thankfully William Edge Institute did just that.  My experience was positive from start to finish and I would highly recommend William Edge Institute to anyone looking to start the cosmetology program.  My experience was amazing and I feel they really went above and beyond.

I loved every minute of it… I learned a lot of good information and I would recommend this school to anyone.

The best decision I have ever made. I have met some amazing people going to school with, many that I still keep in touch with. I graduated not knowing what I wanted to really do. I was 19 years old. Doing hair was the best decision I ever made. I worked my way through college being able to pay for my books and loans. When I was slow at the salon I was able to do home work. I graduated college with a Masters degree in elementary education. Guess what I am doing now…Hair! The lessons, friendships, skills I have learned from this school has helped me grow into the lady I am today. I now own my own salon and doing very well. The knowledge that I gained from this amazing place and these amazing instructors has helped me build my clientele and start my business. They go above and beyond. There are things I learned here that other stylists are like “what I never knew that?” That’s what you want is to be the most knowledgeable in your field and this is the place to go!

This is a great beauty college! I gained both my operator and operator instructor’s license. I am so happy I choose this College. I researched all the beauty colleges in San Antonio, and this was the one that felt like home. This college has smaller class settings, one on one attention, and great teachers. I consider everyone here my family. They have helped me blossom into the beautiful, amazing stylist I am today. Hands down the best education you can get in the beauty industry.

William Edge Institute is the best! Staff is more like family. They go above and beyond to help you achieve your dream!

Discipline, work ethic and fundamentals are what this beauty school is all about. I enjoyed my time there. Loved everyone on staff!

Excellent instructors at Mims Classic Beauty College (now William Edge Institute)!!! I graduated with the skills and experience to pass my State Manicurist exam.

Beauty school was the best thing that happened to me and my future! I was able to afford it and get a quality education! Thank you Megan for making me feel like family ♡

Amazing school, I learned so much. Everything was hands on. My Instructors were very supportive, made sure we were ready for our state boards, rather than throw us to the sharks. I can clearly remember seeing other students coming in jeans and t shirts. Mims (now William Edge Institute) had us prepared for professionalism. The best part is if you compare the price of this school versus all the other ones in San Antonio, you will find that Mims Beauty College (now William Edge Institute) is the best value by far. This great school is family oriented with great hands on teachers that won’t put a dent in your pocket, unless you want to spend extra money! I appreciate all the Instructors for believing in me. ♡♡♡♡♡♡

Can’t say enough great things about my experience as a student. For one, I feel I got the kind of personal and hands on education that I frankly don’t think I could have received at some of the more corporate competitors. Mims (now William Edge Institute) has been family-run and operated for decades, and that is just one of its many strengths. Their instructors are first-class and knowledgeable as well. And Mims (now William Edge Institute) gave me all of the foundation I needed for my current success as a hair stylist. Thank you for everything!

This is an awesome school wonderful instructors love you Ms. Ray & Ms. Poe! Learned so much from them and new I have my own salon!!!

This was the best education I have ever received. I absolutely recommend this school to everyone. It is truly a great experience and family. If you want to have an amazing foundation as a stylist, this is where you want to be.

was very lucky to find Mims (now William Edge Institute). I went to Mims because it was the oldest most well-established beauty school in San Antonio. I finished my cosmetology certification and now I’m getting my instructor certification I couldn’t be happier, thanks Mims!
