I attended Barbizon when I was 12, in 1999. I went 5 more times after that, my last time attending classes when I was 19 right before college. (If you do go to the classes and graduate, you get to come back for free so my parents made sure I got to do that!) When I was 12 I was a 5'9 and a really skinny lanky ***, and I got bullied a lot for being tall and skinny (when other girls were battling... Read more

I had 2 daughters who attended Barbizon training and later became part of the agency. I spent over $20K with the training and IMTA attendance. I am not going to call them a scam, but I do think its all about the money and they are not truly honest with the girls. They are selling kids false hopes. After spending all the money for IMTA, I felt my daughters were totally unprepared for what to... Read more

Me & my sister were scouted at RibFest in Toronto by Barbizon Models and our parents brought us to the audition. This was absolutely amazing and there was a huge crowd. We did our catwalk & TV commercial audition. We even got to meet with international agents and were given honest opinion about our potential. Guys, it's all FREE SERVICE!!! Ms. Marisa, the agent interviewed me was... Read more

I'm an aspiring model & I went to barbizon in Ardmore PA because I knew of a girl who went there in my high school. She got work so I figured I'd try to go to them. When I got there they made me sit in a room full of ppl and we had to do a cold read. Then they made us all walk, whether we were there for modeling or acting. After seeing me walk one of the lady's that worked there... Read more

I attended there back in the early 80's. It was costly, but my mother was very happy with the outcome, and never once complained that it was a waste of my parent's time or money. The reason is because she didn't go into anything blindfolded. There were no promises made to either her or myself. The classes did a great deal for my self-esteem as a pre-teen, and I went on to obtain local modeling... Read more

I attended Barbizon once back in 2000something. They took $800 deposit, and when I asked for a refund, the director ( who I remember was a really rude lady) said "You signed a contract which shows there can be no refund." At the time, I was young and left it there. But now I realized they scammed me. On top of the overpriced lessons and auditions that cost people ( really?) , they do whatever... Read more
