Went for highlights and it took 5 hours! Yes this is a teaching school but this was ridiculous and the end result wasn't worth it. When I arrived it was sunny out and by the time I left it was a winter storm that took me 2 hours to drive home in because I got stuck in rush hour traffic because it took so long there. When my stylist said she had a long way to drive home and was given the choice by her instructor to go home, she did. I couldn't believe it. Another stylist finished my hair and I was finished with them.
