I enjoy giving the student my head of hair to put into practice what they have learned and increase their skills. I go on Senior day which has a reduced price.Personally : I bring my sketch book and watercolors -- to paint the student and instructor . It helps time pass for me and I gift them the final paintings. I'LL BE BACK.

I went in for a gel pedicure. My appointment started with a lack of inventory for gel polish. There was only a handful. The manager did not seem to care. I sat in the pedicure chair to a student who had no idea what she was doing. She worked on my big toe for 20 minutes and didn’t do anything. I complained and they said I could just leave if I was unhappy. I went hoping to have this service be cheaper. It was 40 for the pedicure plus tip which only only a little cheaper for getting a student instead of a professional. I am most upset that no one cared that I was not happy. What a miserable experience. I would never go back…

I had my first back treatment here with Sandy a few weeks ago. I was curious because I’ve never had one before, and I can say now that I really liked it. It was so relaxing and the massages were really good. Sandy used the right amount of pressure for me and always made sure I was comfortable. I came back for a facial today and she did not disappoint again! Loved the facial massages and the products felt really nice on my skin. Would definitely come back for other services!

My stylist did exactly what I wanted. Both the instructor and the student took care of me. I appreciate the lower cost women's haircut option that NOVA offers.
My first visit to this location, and the experience was top notch. From the pleasant Australian greeter at the front, to Donna the instructor who is a vivacious delightful Whirlwind of inspiration to clients and students alike, to Kennedy, my budding stylist, who is learning the ropes, and will surely move from soft-spoken to confident soon enough. I strongly encourage you visit this location, and take advantage of Mondays, when you can receive a world-class cut for only $5.

Always a very professional event from the sign in to the exiting routine. The instructors maintain a business like rapport with the client as well as verifying the service being done and the steps the student will take to ensure the steps are all being done properly. At that point, friendly communication from both the student and the instructors make for a pleasant experience. I come to the school knowing I’ll have the work done in safely using clean, sterile, tools and products. I very much enjoy every part of my visit!!!

I visited in May, 2023. This was the old location of MN School of Cosmetology. I loved their services, their prices and the general vibe of the place. This place has since changed its name to Nova Academy, jacked their prices to nearly double what they were at MSC, and no longer honor MSC gift cards. I'm just out the money. Same people here as before. Just erased old records, changed the name and raised prices. Nova is "ok", I just didn't appreciate losing my stored value gc without notice. Vibe is different, and my hair was ok, but not the WOW I used to get with MSC. 💔

I had Grace do my lash refill, & Molly as the instructor supervise. Grace was amazing & you can tell she knew what she was doing. I was just sad they didn't have fan lashes, instead they had single classic lashes. But Grace went above & beyond to make sure the classic lashes blended in with what I had originally on my lashes already. I would recommend if you need refills. Would love it more if they had more lash options.

I've been going here for years and have never had a bad experience. Hair cut and color last month is my favorite to date. Mani/ pedi today was delightful. Was wonderful being pampered by Amie Buckner. Everyone is so friendly and cheerful. Highly recommend!!!

Getting a haircut at Nova is a pleasing experience, the staff is very polite and the cosmetology students are very friendly and proficient. Receiving a vets haircut is an appreciated bonus.

I had two facial waxing and a eyebrow tint !! I can’t tell you how much the eyebrow tint made me feel young again. No more of the gray hairs in there …. I don’t have to color and pencil them in every morning what a game changer for me just made me feel prettyRemington was amazing

I visited in May, 2023. This was the old location of MN School of Cosmetology. I loved their services, their prices and the general vibe of the place. This place has since changed its name to Nova Academy, jacked their prices to nearly double what they were at MSC, and no longer honor MSC gift cards. I'm just out the money. Same people here as before. Just erased old records, changed the name and raised prices. Nova is "ok", I just didn't appreciate losing my stored value gc without notice. Vibe is different, and my hair was ok, but not the WOW I used to get with MSC. 💔

I had the signature facial with Grace and am VERY happy with the results and the service. I highly recommend Grace if you’re in need of a facial or eyelash extensions or lash/brow tint or a body wrap or a back facial… She’s fabulous!

I had Grace do my lash refill, & Molly as the instructor supervise. Grace was amazing & you can tell she knew what she was doing. I was just sad they didn't have fan lashes, instead they had single classic lashes. But Grace went above & beyond to make sure the classic lashes blended in with what I had originally on my lashes already. I would recommend if you need refills. Would love it more if they had more lash options.

Wow…Love this place. Mallory is amazing. I love my new cut. Got rid of 5 inches and she also did a half foil and toner. Out of all the times I’ve foiled my hair this is the best job I have ever seen. It is soooo natural looking. Mallory is very sweet and knowledgeable. The instructors are really nice and want their students to do well. Shout out to Mallory!!!! Thank you!
