I went in today originally to retouch my roots, as my hair was a dark brown. The student who was coloring it would leave for 20 min at a time, not checking on me or the dye in my hair. After rinsing the dye out, she tried blow drying my hair with a diffuser and kept burning my scalp. After my hair dried, not only was my hair greasy from all the product but I also told her it looks the exact same and she didn’t care to fix the problem. I spent $30 for my hair to look the exact same, so I will not be coming back.

I was very pleased after my first visit at Paul Mitchell the School Louisville! Madison was polite and extremely thorough. She asked a lot of questions to find out exactly what I was hoping to get out of my visit, and she explained the processes of the Tea Tree and Keratin Treatments before she started so I would know exactly what to expect. Before she trimmed my hair, she looked at the photos I had of what I wanted and she consulted with her instructor. Both instructors on the floor were helpful and friendly. I am a college instructor and really appreciated their training approach with Madison also; they were each patient and encouraging, and allowed her the opportunity to perform certain cuts so long as she was comfortable. One of them assisted with something Madison wasn't comfortable doing, and that instructor did so without any hesitation while continuing to show Madison how to do it. Overall a great experience and I will be back! I highly recommend this school's services!

Had a absolutely awful experience. Just spend your money elsewhere. You think that it would be worth it to go to Paul Mitchell because the students are under the care of professionals but basically you're a guinea pig for the students. My daughter got a color and it was a dark brown color, she previously had a lighter blondish brown color. When we got in to good lighting I could see a huge streak of her previous color across the back of her hair. So just to say the least I'm not impressed with what that student from Paul Mitchell provided.

This is a school!..for those who complain I would like to remind them this is a school! If you want perfection see a hairstylist with experience and pay the price $$$ for experience. Don't complain over a 5 or 10 dollar cut or how long it took...go somewhere else and pay a salon price. These are learning students. Have you ever had to learn anything? Have you ever furthered your own education? It takes time. Its really unfair to complain...and that is about as nice as I can be about it.

I've been going to Paul Mitchell for about a year every three to four weeks for a haircut. There was a discount for men where the hair cuts were $5 on Wednesdays. I went recently and was told the $5 was only supposed to be for the first hair cut but they have messed up all this time by charging $5 for every men's hair cut on Wednesdays. I have been going here because $5 was a great deal, all but one person who has cut my hair has been wonderful, the hair cuts themselves are usually good enough, I like the atmosphere, and I usually tip $5 to whoever cuts my hair - everyone seems happy this way. Sometimes I would go every couple of weeks instead of three or four since the included scalp massage/wash is a relaxing experience itself.Now, though, for someone like myself who doesn't care much about my hair as long as it is presentable, $10 for a hair cut isn't such a great deal to me anymore. $15 including the tip.I likely will still keep going, but I'm not going to be as happy about it. Would rate five stars if they bring back the $5 Wednesdays.
