    Possibly the best $16 I’ve ever spent. I called in the morning and asked for a trim, first available. They got me in that evening. Yes - it is a school - they are not yet licensed individually. However, the instructors are circling and I could see them watching from a comfortable distance.After I arrived, the student stylist promptly greeted me and we discussed what I wanted. Then the instructor came over while I was still dry/“natural” (the way I looked when I came in) and the two of them discussed what I had asked for and what the plan was. Then the stylist washed me and trimmed me, gave me a blowout, and then the instructor came over again. They checked the full review

    It takes longer than a typical hair excursions but it is worth the money and the experience. The students are very nice and the educators have a ton of experience. Keep in mind real hair expectations. Some do's cannot be did without a redo! And that's that! I'm the pink one!

    So I do want to say the girl who did my hair was very personable, professional, and super nice. I would definitely come back. But, what I wanted vs. what I received, is not close. It did turn out somewhat cute, but there’s chunks of my hair that don’t have color in it, where color should be. And there’s like full sections in the front where it was even touch at all. I have to hide darker parts that they didn’t dye because it makes me embarrassed, like literal chunks of dark hair in the front and the rest blonde. ?But my stylist personality wise was very nice.
