Barbizon has always been a scam "modeling agency" I know every good business will get bad reviews here and there from people with axes to grind but look at the ragtime reviews, everyone can't be wrong. This business is a predatory company that preys on lower-middle class parents and children with hopes and dreams. I am not a competitor, I am a Father who's daughter was put in the hands of this...

Hi I am a 16 year old girl and about 8 months ago I signed a contract with an modeling agency for 1300. One day after signing that contract my grandma was admitted to the hospital and fell really sick and my family realized that we did not have the time or money for it. I called and told them I want a full refund and they said that they would have it done for me. Its been about 8 months now and... Read more

I attended Barbizon modeling & acting school in 2013 here in Tampa, FL. I went to the audition in shorts, sandals & a tank top with nothing done to my hair and no extravagant makeup done, being surrounded by girls in dresses, high heels & done up hair plus fancy makeup I figured I'd never make it in. I was complimented by the recruiting agent on so many things. They gave me all the... Read more

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
