I love this place! I always go as a walk-in and get my hair done. I've only ever been refused once due to how crowded it was. I, personally, prefer going during the morning classes. The night shift is decent, but first is always better! I love that there are teachers there that they consult with before they do anything and that most of the students are not afraid to ask for help!
