I was a student of la James several years ago. Due to an unfortunate incident causing my mother to break her back, I had to return to our hometown to care for her. Hair Tech school was actively running at the time in my home town but they did not accept grants of any sort. So, I was unable to complete my schooling. I have since had my hair done at LA James by other students and I have always been satisfied :) Good Job to all you beautiful ladies working so hard to keep the rest of us feeling beautiful :)
