I went recently to get my hair cut and dyed back to brown and while the people who worked with me were very kind I could hear students talking negatively about my hair and saying things like I should just leave, asking why I was still there. I know there is a chance they were talking about another patron at the salon but regardless it made me uncomfortable for my entire experience knowing that they students are so harsh about their clients and couldn’t shake the feeling that I wasn’t wanted there. It was to the point I heard Gail (very sweet lady!) tell them to “be nice” and stop. Unfortunately as well my hair is quite orange and not very brown, but I do understand I was a special case and that is why it didn’t quite work out! I will say they take a long time so prepare for that when planning a visit here. I very much appreciate the people who helped me out and tried to make me feel more comfortable!!

Sky is awesome, and so helpful. I had so much trouble in the past with school and figuring out financial aid & he walked me through it and made it so much easier for me.
