I would give the School a big fat ZERO if I could . Hair Masters is such a joke and an true embarrassment to the beauty industry! Seriously folks ! Very unprofessional school all around with a TON of DRAMA and HATE. The STAFF creates more drama than the students!! Shame on you all!! You are messing with people’s careers! All you care about is how many students you can get and taking their hard earned money!!!! I hope more people will come out and voice their opinions !! THIS HAS TO STOP!! 👎

I brought in a picture of the haircut that was my hair - just needed a trim/cut/shape. The student was nice enough - but not very confident. I did not see much of 'finished' cut until I had my glasses on. Way too short on the sides - it looks like my son's haircut - nothing like the feminine picture I brought in or the hair on my head that should have been the guide. Yes, it is a pixie cut - but in the picture she had hair on the sides. Mine looks 'buzzed' and it was cut with only scissors! I am rarely critical of someone else's job - but this hair cut is not a good look for me. I keep looking at the picture and wondering what part of the picture looks like the hair ( or lack thereof) on my head. My hair will grow back - but I will never go back.
