School here for just your money?? I booked a tour of this school a week in advance, I even said when I arrived that I was here for a tour. When I arrive, I was only given the tour of the office of one of the ladies for admissions. I wasn’t given a tour of the school at all, instead all that was discussed was how much it would be to attend this school. There was nothing enticing about the school, didn’t get to see an inch of where I would be if I were to truly enroll, only the price. There is nothing exciting about the school if I'm not shown it. Worst first impression I’ve ever had with any school I’ve been toured with considering the other schools at least gave me a tour.

Had my hair colored today. The young girl had an excellent personality, friendly, and very cautious. Although I was in a hurry, she knew it but she still felt secure in what she was doing and did a fantastic job. I was very pleased with her work. I believe she will make a fantastic hair stylist.

I had an appointment booked with a student and when I pulled into the parking lot I got a message from her saying the school was booked and we would have to reschedule. This is extremely unprofessional! I understand it’s just a school but what will happen when they are in the real world.
