My daughter is presently enrolled at Johnny Matthew’s. The advanced hairdressing skills and training that she’s receiving are apparent. As a parent, I enthusiastically endorse what these guys are doing down at the hair school and I think it’s an amazing asset to hairdressing and barbering in the Salem area.

The education I have received at this school has surpassed my expectations. I am so very glad to be apart of this establishment! The instructors have changed the face of learning hair, and have you jump right in as if you have been doing it for years. I have learned so much already just being here for four months. I can’t wait to finish off my year, and be the best hairdresser I can be.

I love coming here everyday. Its a good environment with fun/loving people. It doesn't have that strict school vibe which makes it better. For the most part the prices are pretty good. The teachers are the sweetest most amazing people, I've told so many people about this place. Love it!


As a student at Johnny Matthew’s I believe I’m getting the best education there is. The atmosphere is great, and the teachers are very educated and personable. You will not want to go to any other school once you've toured Johnny Matthew’s Hairdressing School.

I am a transfer student from another school in the area (touted as the “best” one). I had been at that other school for over a year. I have been at Johnny Matthew’s for a week and I have learned more about advanced color and cutting than a year at my old school. If you are thinking of attending cosmetology school, this is the best one by far. Come here and you will learn how to do hair in today’s world, not just 1950′s perms and wet sets.

I'm currently attending Johnny Matthews and this is a school like no other. Not only do we get an excellent education that is hands on we have our instructors right there next to us for every client to make sure every customer leaves with fabulous hair and a smile.
