This is a great place for me to come get my hair done. I’ve had nothing but great service here. The students are supervised every step of the way by the teachers so I always get what I came in for. And they’re all super friendly!

Went twice. Once for a perm that they argued with me about blonde being my natural color, saying that I was a liar. The second time I went to get a design for my undercut. Sat in the waiting room for over two hours and no one gave me a reason why. When I threatened to leave they finally got someone for a trim the rest of my hair. At 3.5hrs I finally got my under cut done and the guy speed through it and it looked bad. P.s. I waited because I had someone else with me who was also getting their hair cut during the first hour

I went to school there. it's not sanitary at all. the owners are awful to the students. The teacher talk behind your back. They don't pay the staff enough. They use the students for profit and they add on services so it cost more for the client. we get into trouble for leaving bad reviews. They work us too hard and sometimes we won't have lunch. We pay so much to go to school but we don't know where the money goes because we never had enough product. they dont teach us how to clean up blood properly. :( just be careful if you go there to get a service done or want to go to school there.

I've been getting haircuts @ Northwest College for almost 4 years and I'm always amazed at the talent they receive with the barbering department. Sure, not every student is gifted with cutting hair from the get go, but each one of them holds a element of passion. "LB" is one of those barbers that makes sure you leave happy and feeling great in your own skin.I highly recommend this place for anyone with an open mind that is willing to listen to the students stories.

I have had my hair colored here several times and it has always turned out great. My problem is that the service has been declining. The students are great but the last two times I went for a color they didn't have any color. The first time it happened was weather related and that I get. The second time though had nothing to do with weather. I was also upset that they knew they didn't have any color but didn't bother to call and tell me not to come. I took off work early and fought major traffic to get there on time only to be told they were out of color. The student was awesome and tried to help me find somewhere else. The other problem I have is that the students are always not showing up. I have had 3 appointments cancelled because the students just don't show up. It is very frustrating!
