I received an all over color service. The student who did my hair did a fine job on the color, but could have saturated it a little more. One day later, I have faded areas where you can tell that color was not applied thoroughly. It still looks fine enough where I don't want to make a fuss to get it redone, but for a senior student, I would expect more. Which, brings me to my biggest issue- the disparity in the school's pricing model. The website states that color starts at $35. It fails to state that the student may charge more based on their seniority status. In addition to the unclear rates, they charge for product- $10 a bowl for hair color. I was quoted $40 for my "Senior" stylist plus an extra $30 for three bowls. Mind you, I have shoulder length hair. $70 total for all over color....at a beauty school when some salons don't even charge that. I would much more understand the time commitment to longer processes (highlights, balayage, thick/long, hair) and would much more respect paying a higher flat fee that includes product rather than sign off on a quote that is out of the client's control.
Overall, I realize this is a school, and may try out some other services down the road. I will just make sure I have a loose expectation of what I may pay for said service.
