I had a very similar experience, but found a great young man who I stayed with through his last six months and followed him to his salon just outside TV.

I had a semi bad experience. First of all I was there for 5 hours, had a young man who was very slow and with the teacher checking all the time it took forever. Then before he was finished with the color his "shift" was over so I was passed to someone else. That girl was very nervous and unsure of herself. The end result was the instructor cut one side of my hair and the girl attempted to cut the other side. I just wanted to get out of there at that point. By the way, I have very short hair. I will not go back, 5 hours was way to long to hightlight and cut short hair. Each instructor had about 6 students who they were supervising so I spent alot of time waiting.
On the other hand a fried went there and got a great haircut and color, guess it just depends on luck of the draw.

What about perms? Every stylist says no, because they aren't 'in' now. Someone suggested the Academy. Any thoughts about going there for perms?

I took my man Ed there for a hair cut last Saturday and it looks great. Between the stylist and her supervisor, it was cut just as we requested. Didn't mind spending over an hour since we got what we went there for.

I won't get a cut there...need a really good stylist to do that with my hair type. BUT I've had color, foils AND pedicures there. I will say with the several pedicures done---I probably only had one person who did a so-so job. Right now the school if offering a 3 for 1 special $30.00 but it's late in the day on certain days. Wondering if anyone has gone for this one!!!!
