I went there and got color, gloss, and trim. The girl did an excellent job. She was a level three, her name is Destin or Dustin (sorry can't remember). It took a while though, that is because they have to get checked off each procedure and their teacher has to supervise. That is a good thing though. The price was very good, at the time they were having a special on their haircut price.

I've had good luck there too. You just need to remember it is a teaching school and these are students just learning. You can't beat the price if you have the time; again the students are just learning. My experiences have been excellent but I also don't expect the service I got form my full service, experienced salon gal in Maine.

I've had good and bad at the Salon Academy. Everything was good for about a year, then I got a girl who really messed up the color. So I followed the last girl that I liked, who had graduated and has her own salon in Clermont. I like her so much that I don't mind driving 30 miles every 6 wks or so.

I went to the salon once and was satisfied but allow LOTS of time and patience because it is a teaching school.

The first visit I had a haircut and "style" by Jessie who was a month from graduation. She did a great job. $5 The last time I went I soon found out the stylist had only been attending for 3 months. She did color with highlights and it was just ok. Not nearly as much highlights as I wanted so I just came home and I'd my own. I also let her do mani/pedi and it was similar to one my granddaughter would do. The girl was very sweet and I tipped her nicely but I won't go back. I was there 5 hours! Every step has to be approved by an instructor which, of course, slows down the process.

Reporting back on Salon Academy. I have been twice now
for highlights and cut. I got a wonderful young girl named
Leanne. She loves doing highlights and it shows. I have
had many compliments and the price is amazing. Just make
sure you leave alot of time as this is a training facility.

A friend who posts regularly on here had a VERY bad experience with color there.
