TACOMA, WASHINGTON -- I went to this hair school for a trim because last year the male who was a master at my hair left the business. Ever since I have not found a stylist who I clicked with. Since I usually pay high prices for my hair I also want to enjoy talking to the person. I do not mind paying top notch prices for my hair, so the reason why I went to this hair school was not because I needed to save the money. I went to this school for a trim because I don't have a hairstylist and I felt that there was not much risk in getting a trim.
I realize that students perform the work and are supervised. However, I felt confident that a student that is advanced enough to be working with clients could successfully complete a trim. I was dead wrong! I sat in the chair and explained to the student who was going to “trim” my hair that I was growing out my hair and that at this time my hair was the longest it has been in two years. At this time my hair was a little past my chin.
I explained to the girl that I was really excited to grow out my hair. In the middle of my haircut the girl stopped and said she was going to get her supervisor. At first I didn't think much of it because I expected at a hair school that the student's work has to be checked. While waiting for them to come back I ran my fingers through my hair. I was shocked and wanted to cry. My hair was still a little past my chin. BUT I had a layer cut in the middle of the back of my head. Then I had the bottom of my hair layered close to my neck. The only way the supervisor was able to fix my hair to make it look like a decent hair style was to cut it into an inverted bob.
I don't understand how a “trim” could end up into an inverted bob. This company calls themselves The Salon Professional Academy but their students are not professional at all! Not even close. I recommend that their students be required to take a listening skills class. My advice to you when going to The Salon Professional Academy in Tacoma, WA is to enter at your own risk.
