What is the best beauty school or cosmetology school to go to in Las Vegas?

I am looking to enroll in a cosmetology program and I would like to get an idea of the best school to go to from people who have or are attending a school. I am looking for the real information and not the "brochure" jargon. I am looking for the good, the bad, and the true happenings that are going on once you are enrolled, or have heard stories from those that are enrolled. I want to make the best decision possible before I spend thousands of dollars only to find out that the school is crappy.

    Please save yourself A LOT of money by attending the more Affordable county vo-tech school (or community college) as opposed to those private overpriced for-profit beauty/tech schools such as 'paul mitchell, the school', 'aveda institute', 'toni guy', 'empire beauty', 'regency', 'marinello' and others as long as the program is accredited within the industry. It might take the graduate a couple of years to 'get a book' (of regular customers) before Possibly making a decent salary. Then the person may be struggling to pay for rent and other expenses as well as all of those student loans.

    These consumer sites have negative posts about those private $$ for-profit beauty/tech schools:

    For US colleges: http://www.utexas.edu/world/univ

    General career info: http://www.bls.gov/oco and can search 'barbers and cosmetologists' or such.

    I'm not in school yet but I can tell you the sites that I used to narrow my choices.Beauty School (http://www.beautyschool.com)/ and Beauty School Directory (http://www.beautyschoolsdirectory.com)/ helped me a lot to pick and choose what matched my interests. After I found a school I liked, I requested free information and was about talk to the schools and have them answer my questions.

    You may also want to check out My Social Beauty (http://www.mysocialbeauty.com)./ Its a beauty social networking site for the cosmetology industry. You can connect with other beauty students, teachers and professionals and it has tons of great articles and beauty advice by Kimberley Bosso and other beauty celebrities and beauty experts in the industry. I use it often! You can search for schools as well.
