Great price and value for a simple haircut, and ease of scheduling appts. Thankfully the instructors are very willing to help students and set them on the right path (and finish/tidy/check their work if needed) and that students are willing to ask for the help rather than winging it.

Wasn't the best experience. I had very long hair, down to my waist. I showed the stylist and the teacher a picture of what I wanted. When the stylist first combed my hair she showed me she was going to cut off 2 inches that was dry damaged ends. I was fine with that and said even 3 inches would be OK but I never take it above the band of my bra. Well, by the time she was done cutting 8 yes 8 inches of my hair was gone and it looked nothing like the picture. The teacher attempted to fix the layers that were supposed to be in the front but there is nothing that can be done with the 5 extra inches that were cut off. I've been there before with good experiences but I will never let any stylist turn my back to the mirror again. Very upset about the length, it will probably take almost 2 years to get ithe length back where I wanted it. Just be care if you have long hair.
