I have always come to the school for my hair needs. Been coloring hair by them and it’s always a good experience (new owner). So the school is under new ownership! Give it another chance- so much has changed!

I came here looking for an affordable, decent haircut I left here with a stunning haircut and my day and spirits unexpectedly uplifted by some of the awesomest future "hair therapists." In all, I met three gals, "Moriah" my main girl (who can light up a room with her dimpled smile) and her fellow classmate -- an adorable curly-haired blonde young lady, along with their teacher. I came looking for a drastic change late into the afternoon when most of us are looking forward to go home. We learned alot about each other through friendly dialogue and somewhere along the line, these girls felt like family. They could have rushed me through, but instead they took extra care of me, gave me a high end haircut with heartwarming hospitality that I will not soon forget. I am grateful for the opportunity to have met some of the girls at this downtown Portsmouth school; they are going to go on to do what we are all in search of everyday -- to make us feel better about ourselves when we needed it the most. Thank you to the gals of Paul Mitchell school of Portsmouth!

If I could give 0 stars I would. I went in to get my roots done. They changed the plan on me to even up the color. Long story short my hair got so burned off that I now have to spray my hair down until it grows back. I ended up having to dye my hair back to my natural color because I was too scared to put any more bleach in it. They tried blaming me because I had done my hair at home for years and years. I never had this problem doing it myself. They burned my hair off at the new growth after having bleach on it for 3 hours!!! If you want your hair done correctly and not ruined then go to a professional. Definitely not worth the $130 they charged me and refused to refund!!!! Worst. Place. Ever!!!!!

I've been here a couple times and both have been good! Prepare to spend longer than you would at a regular salon, but the future professionals do a great job (and are checked by a licensed person).
