Had a bad experience with the student and the instructor. I booked an appointment for hair coloring, was told they were not able to color my hair when I arrived. I felt uncomfortable and pressured to make an immediate change by the instructor, and all options I considered for my hair were shut down and not explained properly. Oftentimes the student would also disagree with the instructor in front of me, this made me feel very uncomfortable. The customer service and lack of professionalism is horrible, do not recommend.

Last month, I tried to make an appointment, but Lola said I couldn't come in without explaining why. Every time I call, she has a bad attitude, and she hangs up when I ask about why I can’t come in. Her interactions with students and others seem unprofessional. I saw her arguing with a student last time I came in. It's the main reason I don't want to come in. She needs to get fired. Never coming again.!!!! My friends go there to get their hair done because you can’t beat the price and they warned me about it but I didn’t believe it but witnessing her attitude is just disgusting. Don’t go here if you want to be treated with respect. Customers steer clear of this place.
