Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

This school only cares about money, not the students.

I understand this is a school and the students are learning but I left pretty disappointed. I came in hoping for a balayage and left with patches of yellow in my hair even though the student and teacher ensured me multiple times all the yellow was out. The instructor okay’ed everything and I was then sent away with half of my hair soaking wet because they didn’t have time to dry it. On top of this, when I got home, I realized the entire back of my shirt was bleached. I had to go to an actual salon to get my hair fixed and get the yellow out because they didn’t lift it enough. Definitely won’t be coming back here and wish I could get my money, time, and favorite shirt back.

I am so happy with my color and cut! And the price was great. Update 6/21/18 Just had my fourth visit here and it was great. I've never left unhappy. I have had a different person every time and they always do a great job with color and cut.
