Very unprofessional and uncoordinated place.i waited 2 hours to get placed with a student that had no knowledge of the simple style I wanted and the teacher was unwilling to assist her until she attempted to do my hair first. Nasty attitude and very unwelcoming ghetto environment. Needs major improvement there!

Fr! Like they have this price list on the wall for braids its $40 for short 35 for med and 30 for long. They charged me 40 for my daughter's hair which is med. Smh.. then they had a sign in the window for 3$ deep conditioner but told me it was five. These people got me all the way pissed. I will never come in this place again.

A year ago I went to this school because the one I normally went to a bardstown Rd closed the student they gave me didn't know how to wash or comb hair I was getting a thermal flat iron the girl was told several times by a fellow student she needs to apply heat protection she got smart & never used the heat protector and she didn't even part my hair to flat iron it just took chunks of hair I ended up leaving without getting my full service to not compromise the Health of my hair any further ... Here we are a year later I decided to give this site another shot this time I specifically asked for a graduating student the girl was really pleasant but she didn't put any conditioner in my hair are shampooing and she didn't detangle my hair before flat ironing it which made the flat iron clumpy at ends my hair was dry due to no conditioning and looked 4 days old fresh out the chair I think I've given them a fair shot but at the expense of my hair healthy I won't be returning to the Dixie site
