Got my hair done by Elena today! She was amazing and up to the challenge of chopping all my hair off for me :) loved the final result and can't wait to go back to her with any other hair experiments I might want to try in the future

WOW. I had the most amazing experience. I got the opportunity to work with Katie and Maddy, and they were thorough in their work and getting my hair to what I wanted it to be, so kind and continuously checking to see if I was alright, accommodating to my sensitive scalp, so reassuring when it was taking long than expected, and SO sociable and FUN. To the point where it just felt like I was hanging out with friends I've known my whole life. They made the whole atmosphere of the place homey and I left feeling so pampered and cared for. I love my hair (I got a root touch up) and it's silky and smooth and they did in all around impeccable job, just as all my Paul Mitchell experiences have been. You will never not have an amazing time there and I would recommend it over any other salon. THESE GIRLS ARE INCREDIBLE.

My first ever appointment yesterday and I was very pleased. Felt so pampered and everyone was so friendly. My haircut, color and style went so well. I love the way it turned out. Will definitely be back for future cuts and touch ups.Make sure to make appointments. They are a very busy place. The students/instructors work very hard and it shows

Incomplete, two hour long men's haircuts. I do not recommend! Cut up my neck.My friend recommended Paul Mitchell so I decided to give it a try. Knowing I was with a student, I was very patient with her and I was pleased that the instructor came by every 10 minutes or so to check on the student. After about an hour and a half, every angle of my hair was incomplete even after the instructor came to attempt to fix the student's mistakes. Towards the end, after my neck was chopped up from the blade, I decided I have had enough and I made an excuse that I had somewhere to be.I left Paul Mitchell and went to Great Clips to get my hair fixed (where this picture was taken).Very dissatisfied and I felt very uncomfortable with this experience at Paul Mitchell.
