When I come here I get skin treatment. Usually I get different girls each time (not by choice). You know these guys are students and are still learning. So it can be a little nerve wracking. Yet I have never had a bad experience. Whenever I come into the labby to the front desk; it is calm, soothing, professional, and honest. I always feel like I am in good hands, and I am! I am impressed with the teachers for knowing when the students are ready to handle the customers. I am impressed with the students for knowing the limits, expectations, needs, and guidelines, and how they execute the tasks they are given with fine detail and a soft touch. I am always looking forward to making an appointment here. If you found this helpful please click the "thumbs up."

So far every time I have been there, they've done a wonderful job. The teachers are very attentive and helpful, they are nice and talkative. I have been happy with my hair cut and color each time. The only "problem " is the length of time it takes,but for the price your paying, it's worth it. 👍👍👍

They do a great job on my boyfriend's hair, BUT I went in to get a regular manicure, and I can not endorse that side of the salon. The girl (almost graduated, so not new) was really nice after I started talking to her, but she literally swiped the file twice over each nail, dug at a little of the dried out, clear Polish for a few minutes until she realized she needed a new bottle, and then made even me nervous from her shaking putting on my polish, which (not to be rude but....) looked like one of the kids I nanny for did it. I know it's only $10, but come on. I probably will be going to the place down the street for $3 extra. I'm a very honest reviewer, because I rely on reviews when trying something new out. I hope this college continues to grow, and maybe in a few years I'll try again.
