First I want to start by saying the overall building is amazing ! I came in about two weeks ago, My husband and I came to Vanguard College of Cosmetology In Slidell to get his hair cut. It was our first time visiting the school. I had an amazing time talking to the service desk, the student that cut my husbands hair, Natalie Leblanc, was so sweet she talked to him like she wanted him to be comfortable and happy. My husband, being a cancer survivor and dealing with a lot Of other things hadn't had his hair cut in 12 years. She made a very good impression, but I cannot forget her AMAZING teacher, Ms. Paris. Ms. Paris was so thorough and polite. She offered us water, coffee and candy. She came over multiple times to make sure her student was doing just fine and also to make sure my husband was okay. She checked his cut and asssisted Natalie with a smile and beautiful orange hair! I was so happy with the service and even more so the experience for my husband we even took pictures of him with them. Thank you so much for making our experience amazing. We will definitely be returning!

My stylist, Mary is awesome. She asks a lot of questions to get to know you and she makes the time go by so fast with her personality. The staff here is so friendly and they don't push products on you, they make some good suggestions to help maintain your look.
