Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

My wife has been getting her hair cut here for few years. She just got it cut last week but found out her usual student will be graduating. The instructor found another student to watch and share how my wife likes her hair cut so there will not be issues next time she comes in for cut and style. Happy wife makes stress free husband.

Overall Rating:

The worst hatchet job I've ever had in my life. I even went in with pictures and told them how to do it. The girl fried my hair with the hair dryer and didn't even know how to use a flat iron. I made them stop and left after I gave them the 12.50 they didn't even deserve. It was obvious the stylist did not enjoy her job or want to be there and the instructor cared very little either.

I go to La James for different services and have always loved what they've done. I know they are learning and I like to give them the opportunity to learn. Took my daughter the last time and she loved it, Everytime we drive by she asks to go in and get her hair cut. She had her birthday party there and loved being pampered
