My granddaughters, ages 12 & 15, went to get acrylic nails last Friday. The nails looked horrible! Nails were clipped & filed crooked, polish had already chipped & polish on their fingers where they missed the nail! Glue used was the same stuff you buy at Walmart & the next day 2 nails fell off!! Hardly worth $67.00. And this mess was okayed by a supervisor! Never again!!

I had a scheduled apointment with a requested stylist, but when I got there 15 minutes early I had to wait an hour for some stylist I didn't request. I then was switched to the one I requested and she did my hair nothing like the picture. She took about 4 hours to finish dying my hair and when I got home I realized the entire back of my shirt was bleached and I had bleach spots on my shorts.

The students do a good job cutting hair, some better than others. The nice thing is, an instructor checks on each cut, and if there's something wrong, they either have the student fix it, or the expert will fix it themselves. So you will get a good cut at a very good price. (just be sure to tip the kids a couple bucks; they won't ask for tips, but that's how they pay for school...) Mark
