This is a waste of a money! It did nothing for my daughter after she graduated the classes they required her to take. As a single mother I didn't have the money to begin with but hey they filled my child head up along with mines with nothing but lies about how many jobs she would afterwards and each time we went to a casting they want more money! Just not worth putting your family threw the... Read more

I attended the call in which I was invited, and ended up interviewing with Miss Elle. She was the rudest lady I have ever spoken to. She liked my look and my walk, which is great, but she also stereotyped me immediately saying that I thought I was full of myself. I was just doing as she told me with a smile on my face. To talk to a teenager like that after giving a speech about bullying made me... Read more

Barbizon is a scam of a company you don't need to pay an agency to help you reach stardom. They're greedy and a rip off. People don't let them take advantage of you and let them tell you what THEY think of your talents THEY just want your money! Report them to BBB and FTC Add comment

So i gave them the money of $2000 and asked for a refund. They said that they will send me an email but i havent got any since Add comment

I went to Barbizon as a teenager and I think it was well worth it. I am considering signing my daughter up (and perhaps re-doing some classes myself. Once enrolled you can come back for life for no add'l fees) because it is so much more than a modeling school. I would attribute it more to a debutant or even life skills school. Yes they teach you makeup and how to walk on the runway, but they also... Read more

I went to Barbizon in Chicago when I was 18 in Fall 1974, my Father paid $500 which at the time was alot of money. I was told by their recruiter I had "hidden" potential All they taught was how to curl your hair and apply makeup. When I moved to Denver I called them and told them I had paid for classes but still had 3 to go they were going to make me pay again for classes I had already paid for.... Read more

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
