Ask for wash, blow dry and flatiron no curls, hair was blown dry like I had straight hair instead of with the comb attachment, so when finished hair was all tangled, student couldn't comb through so instead she got some wet solution and sprayed hair she parted to comb so it was wet and then applied the flatiron which had wet solution popping onto my scalp now have burn blisters and hair still nappy gave her a tip anyway paid my bill and left. Now need neosporin to put on the many places that have burn spots. Son called them back and told them about the burn scalp places they tried to blame it on perm solution, don't have a perm and then said maybe it was the medication I was taking, they have got be be kidding! Don't want to take responsibility for inadequate training. Never going back been there before but this time horrible experience!

I asked for my sides to be faded...for my faux hawk...very simple clipper cut....and for the hair on top to be given a rounder shape as opposed to the boxy style I had. I walked out with only a small patch of uneven hair on top. Even though it was shaved with a guard, it was still patchy and uneven. The instructor even came over to help several times and it still looked like blah. I understand these are students learning the ropes, but my lady said she was graduating in a few weeks. Eep!
