Was washing a students hair and i sprits water on a couple of girls they said they didn't get wet and i didn't mess anyones acrylic thats all they cared about i was done washing hair 30 minutes before the next girl i cleaned up all the water witch no one was around but the nails students they were a distance sitting away i cleaned all the water before the teacher comes in she came in 30 mins later i was in the process of doing someones hair this is when the second girl starts to wash another students hair for practice we all watched a movie on sanitation the student ambassador had said we make our own spills we cleaned our own mess. Im OCD ms sheila comes in automatically saying get this mess up to me u got water in the chair the girl hair i was working on said she didn't get any water in the chair i didn't feel it. Looked at her back side and said i don't have any wet spots on me she said im not hearing it i said ms ward i didn't make the spill bc u said clean up your own mess but ill clean it up it was another girl over there 20 mins ago she was washing another girls hair who had dye i. Went and got clean towls i wiped the salon bowl she said u missed a big spot on the floor i got it. I took the towles to the bin dropped them in the dirty towl bin mrs Sheila ward came storming saying na uh come on were going to the manager i said mrs ward what have i done wrong i went to the manager she made us both sit down and work things out things were calm for a 3 minutes the manager said i don't feel like i should make a student teacher complaint i said ive been going here for 5 consecutive days i dont have a problem or complaint with the teacher she has never called my name in class besides one thing i had book work but it was for tonight homwork i did it during lunch bc i have 15 mins spare time and i normally the 4 person to show up and punch in on time.

I went to get my hair cut today and was feeling nervous because I'd been disappointed in the past at a different school -- but my visit with Hannah could not have gone better! She was extremely thorough, and did everything exactly like I wanted! I love my hair, and the deep conditioner she used makes it feel so soft. She gave me some great tips on styling and was so easy to talk to. I will definitely be back.In the future, if the school is making any changes, I would love to be able to tip with a card -- but now I know to bring extra cash next time. I was so disappointed to leave Hannah empty handed because she truly did a fantastic job. I can't wait to come back and have her work her magic again!

I have had a problem with my hair dying out wearing my hair natural. The young lady Jimesh convinced me to let her do a roller set. She did a wonderful job. My hair lasted over two weeks, still soft and silky. I've been going back to her every since.
