Just graduated today on hair design. At 50 + years of age, this is my very best decision I have ever made. I am so excited to cut and color I cant not stand myself! A lot of work, well worth it you all!!!Was this review helpful?

BACK IN THE 1960's MY MOTHER WOULD ALWAYS GET HER HAIR DONE AT THE BEAUTY COLLEGE IN PORTLAND, OREGON. WHEN WE RETIRED TO LAS VEGAS 3 YEARS AGO FROM PORTLAND I FOUND WHAT I THOUGH WAS A GREAT BEAUTY SALON WITH A WONDERFUL STYLIST. BUT AFTER GOING THERE 3 OR 4 TIMES I FOUND THAT THE PRICE FOR CUTTING AND COLORING MY HAIR WAS GETTING MORE AND MORE EXPENSIVE. ONCE THE PRICE REACHED CLOSE TO $175.00 I HAD ENOUGH!! I REMEMBERED THAT MY MOTHER USE TO GO TO THE BEAUTY COLLEGES SO I LOOKED-UP THIS ONE IN LAS VEGAS AND OFF I WENT. I WAS A LITTLE SKEPTICAL, AS I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE BEST CARE GIVEN TO MY HAIR..BUT, SINCE WE ARE ON A FIXED INCOME I DECIDED TO GIVE THE ACADEMY OF HAIR DESIGN A TRY. I DID NOT NEED AN APPOINTMENT. UPON ENTERING THE BUILDING I WAS SO IMPRESSED BY ALL OF THE HAIR CUTTING AND CHATTERING GOING ON. IT WAS AN UP-BEAT PLACE. I WAS GREETED BY A FRIENDLY RECEPTIONIST AND IN NO TIME AT ALL I WAS PLACED WITH A STUDENT HAIR STYLIST THAT WAS MATCHED WITH ME ACCORDING TO WHAT I TOLD THE RECEPTIONIST I WANTED DONE TO MY HAIR. THE YOUNG MAN THAT THEY PLACED ME WITH WAS A HOOT!! HE MADE ME LAUGH THE WHOLE TIME..HE GAVE ME A WONDERFUL HEAD AND NECK MASSAGE WHEN HE RINSED MY HAIR..BUT THE BEST WAS YET TO COME...HE HAD FOILED-WRAPPED MY HAIR ( I AM A BLONDE) AND HE SHAPED MY LONG HAIR INTO A FULL, MESSY, FUN LAYERED CUT..IT WAS BETTER THAN ANY $100 CUT THAT I HAD EVER HAD!! AND THE COLOR WAS PERFECT!! NOT TO MENTION THE LAUGHTER!! WITH THE CUT, COLOR AND TIP..I SPENT LESS THAN $40.00!! I SAVED SO MUCH ON MY HAIR THAT I TREATED MYSELF TO A MANICURE..IT TOOK LONGER THAN MOST MANICURES BUT THE GIRL TOOK HER TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT I WAS HAPPY. I HAD A GREAT DAY AT THE ACADEMY AND FOR NOW ON I THINK I WILL ALWAYS GO THERE..UNLESS THE YOUNG MAN THAT DID MY HAIR LET'S ME KNOW WHERE HE WILL BE STARTING WORK AT ONCE HE GRADUATES!! I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE THAT WANTS TO PAMPER THEMSELVES TO A DAY OF BEAUTY AND R&R FOR A VERY LOW COST!!Was this review helpful?

Where do I start? Ladies at the front desk were very nice. I had hair when I got there but all shaved off when I left. We talked about how short the sides were going but never got asked about the top. So the top now looks like the sides, 1/8 long. WOW!!! And this was one of their good students .Was this review helpful?
