      I learned so much with the courses I took with Microloc Academy! I am so so happy I took the course before starting Barber School. Here is why: When we were doing the diseases of the scalp, the hair principles and the hair design principle, it was easier for me, and it put me in a better position than the rest of my class. Thanks to Ms Riri who really helped me retain even more with her great teaching.  I got 100 on my test in Barber School because I learned it with Microloc Academy first.

      Microloc Academy is THE BEST!!!
