      Hi Jessica! Thank you for your interest in our Manicuring program. Currently, this course is only offered at our Garden Grove location. Please contact the admissions office at 714-530-2131 for information regarding our flexible schedules.

  1. Hi, I just wonder why the tuition of Massage therapy in Laguna Hill location is more expensive than Garden Grove location? After we take Massage therapy course, Do we have to take a test at State board for the license, the fee is included or I have to pay extra. Thanks.
    Happy holidays.

      Hi Julie, thank you for your question. Although our two programs are affiliated, they are not exactly the same. The different costs reflect many different factors, including operational costs and competitive pricing within each specific market. In regards to state licensing for massage therapy, there is not a state mandated test at this time. Many of our students obtain certification through CAMTC (California Massage Therapy Council) or NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. Please feel free to contact our Admissions office for further details regarding the programs and certification pathways.

  3. Hi there,

    I would like to know why the Esthetician kit is $758.00 at your Garden Grove location and $1,800 at your Laguna Hills location. I would assume the kits are the same. That’s a huge difference in price.

      Hi Kelly, Our two campuses are more like sister campuses. The programs are slightly different in their curriculums although both prepare you for the state board exam. The kits are also different in their contents. Please feel free to schedule appointments to tour both facilities so that you can decide which one is the right fit for you. Thanks and we hope to hear from you soon!

  4. Hello,

    I was just curious if there was a payment plan for the cosmetology kit?

    1. Author

      Hi Corrina,

      Unfortunately, there is not a payment plan for the kits. Once a kit is opened, it is not returnable so we require payment in full. Thanks!

  5. Hi I am interested in the esthetician program and was wondering why the tuition for the laguna hills campus is more expensive than the garden grove one? Is there a difference in curriculum?

      The difference in price reflects a slightly different kit and different instructional materials. Both programs will prepare you to pass the state board exam. Please contact our admissions office to schedule a tour and we can answer any questions you have then.

  10. Hello Krystin,

    I was looking at Marinello and their prices are almost double what you have to offer. Is it the same teaching & certification? I don’t fully understand why your pricing is so much cheaper if its the same thing. I just want to make sure that I get the best education for the price.

    Please get back to me as soon as possible!
