Friday was my first time getting service here. I arrived to a 12:30 consult, I left to get hair when I return it was 1:22 pm. Ashley washed and started molding my hair. She told me that someone else would complete my service, I sat under the dryer for 2 and a half hours without anyone checking on me. By 4:00 the evening instructor was there he asked who was doing my hair I told him I didn't know because Ashley left. He explain to me that no one was there yet to complete my hair. I told him I would pay for my wash and leave. He talked me into staying ensuring me that his students would start arriving in 30 minutes. After waiting the evening students started my hair. It had to be wet and remolded. Mr. Clark told me my services would be $40 I paid using my debit card. Around 7-7:15 pm the students finished gluing in the hair Mr. Clark came to razor my hair down. Mr. Clark got upset with the students. He started yelling at the which I think was very unprofessional. After he finished I told him I didn't want my hair razor like that and I wanted some more hair remove. He told me because I brought that cheap hair it couldn't go in the style that I wanted. I was explaining to him that it was the same hair I always bought for a quick weave, he told me that he was the professional and I didn't need to bring negative to him, I told him I wasn't being negative I was just explaining the hair I bought then Mr. Clark told me I needed to leave. My reply was "I'm not leaving because this isn't the service I paid for. Mr. Clark then told me he would call the cops to have me to leave. I told him he could because I paid for service. The students continue to perform my services. Mr. Jerry Clark was very rude and unprofessional. The students were very nice and polite they were my Real MVP's. It was 8:35 pm when I left there. I spent 7 hours and paid in full for a service that should've taken 2 hours if that. I was left unattended and treated very unfair.
My first date of services was horrible! I barley had any change in my hair. A professor said it was no problem to get what I wanted. And when I left I had no where near that!!
Second appointment we lifted my hair again but for some reason the color was very splotchy and not the same blonde all over. Again the professor said it will look fine once we put the color on it.
Well we washed it out and about an inch of my hair is fried Donbas it looks like ramen noondles.
We put the color on and the student realized there were spots missing color and orange showed throw. When she asked for more color the professor said "oh it will be ok". Well now I have damaged ends and a horrible color contrast.
The student was very nice. And compationate bit the professor never should have said a specific color would work if it wouldn't. I had two ideas that I liked.
They really need to work on having better products and making sure. They evaluate the clients hair properly before starting with chemicals!
Stylist are very friendly and makes your with them enjoyable. I like the weekend night appointment, atmosphere is calm and not as busy. Weekends are more so, so you can choose what kind of time better suits you. But no matter when you have your appointment, the stylist are great. How can you leave not feeling your beaty showing. Thus is my fourth visit and I hope they never change.
