I am always pleased with and impressed by the Insitute. I had one odd experience last time, but that's too be expected with the unbeatable price and the premise of the business. This time, however, I was blown away with the quality, acumen, and enjoyment of my experiences.
Legend delivered such a tremendous experience that it surpassed services I've received at uber high-end salons. In spite of her youth, she clearly has substantial expertise and skill. Her meticulousness and fastidiousness was her quality that I appreciated the most, evidenced by her standards for my hair being perfect surpassing my own standards.
Even though she wouldn't cut corners, rush, or settle for imperfection, she wasn't slow or dragging. In essence, she wanted to spend the most time it would take to achieve perfection (again, defined in greater standards than my own for myself), but simultaneously cared about my wait time and comfort.
I've never memorized a stylist's name to request her or him again, but in this case, I will ask for Legend until she graduates in December; and I wish her the best of luck beyond then!
