Honestly made so many connections and made so many lifelong friends. Esthetics with Demi really made me more interested in skin care especially knowing it help's with better makeup skills. Nicole really pushes you to trust yourself and your vision and to love any outcome that you have. I will definitely always look back on my time at MMA as a great stepping stone to my career.
The academy was so amazing!! I feel like I am so ready for state boards! I made great friends here and the instructors are amazing and become your friends too! Go here!

I was looking for a makeup school that offered special fx makeup and MMA was the only one in Michigan. My favorite part of the entire program was my fx course where I learned to sculpt and mold appliances and function as a true fx artist in the industry, not just out of kit fx. I also really loved creating avant garde and fashion looks in the beauty course. I felt like I got personalized attention from my instructors and even in a large class, I felt like I got the attention I needed to learn and was able to go back and get help with budgets and and stuff as I got job opportunities. The people I've met here have become some of my best friends and I wouldn't have met them if it weren't for MMA.

I absolutely loved going here, from the education I received to the people I met, enrolling in this school was all around one of the best decisions I could’ve made for myself. I’ve made lifelong friendships and received many on-site opportunities while still in school. If you’re looking for a school for basic esthetics or makeup or even cosmetology I would absolutely recommend looking into MMA.

I definitely recommend going here! The instructors are very informative and qualified and you thoroughly learn a lot. The esthetics program is also helpful for furthering knowledge as a makeup artist and for career opportunities in the beauty industry.
