Very disappointed. Paid $40 for my grandson to get twist and the girl (Celeste) freaking cut all his hair off. I didnt understand that at all. And she cut it before she twisted it. And it was a bad cut at that. He was only suppose to get twist. Now he walking around with this mess sitting right on the top of his head. I won't be back. I was very upset when I seen it. Then gonna charge me for a cut on top of the freaking $40. Naw, we won't be back. Now he got to grow his hair out all over again. And she talked like she really knew what she was doing. And the twist are already coming undone. I know she is a student, but she assured me she knew what she was doing.

You get what you pay for here because these are students and even some of the supervision is still at a student level. I applaud them for adding cosmetology to their resume but I'll stay with what I know

Overall Rating:

The holiday hours are a joke, because no one is actually there to cut hair. I'll post a better review when someone is there the next time I come.
