    Except you are paying to be trained properly. That should include customer
    service, not ruining a shirt, and treating people with respect. There are
    students in the school and they are probably wondering what they are paying

    yea i’ve had some awful experiences, and i paid hundreds of dollars, the
    bullshit salon owners say, the lighting, it looks good, and so forth, may
    we never have to go through crap light that again p.s. i lost a shirt in

    instructor or not she is still a cheap idiot. ever heard of “you get what
    you pay for” and as a hairstylist i know from experience that schools only
    teach you the basics so its her fault and you need to stfu

    randy, a “cosmetology instructor” key word “INSTRUCTOR” is a dual licensed
    professional that should be qualified to perform whatever service they
    agree to along with their client following a thorough consultation. If that
    instructor had any sense in the matter she would have let the client know
    that the services requested are not realistic NO MATTER WHAT the reasons
    may be( i.e. The clients hair being too damaged, lack of experience on how
    to acheive the look.etc) NOT A MATTER OF HER BEING CHEAP

    A bad hairstylist is a bad hairstylist. Understandably, a student can make
    lots a mistakes, and having your hair done by a student would definitely be
    at your own risk. However, wouldn’t you expect the INSTRUCTOR to be a
    professional? They would have years of experience and know more than the
    basics in order to be able to teach.

    When you bleach dark hair it brings out orange-gold. That’s very obvious to
    anyone who works with hair. I’m not saying the bleach job wasn’t bad, or
    what you wanted. However, you need more than a bleach job to get the
    specific brown in your desired photo. Also ombre isn’t about what color the
    fade is, it’s just about dark roots that fade to a lighter shade/hue. I
    think that’s all the manager was saying, but I agree with your issues with
    the job, and how you were treated after is crazy.

    There are plenty of ways he could have defended his student and still
    corrected the hair or refunded the cost. That’s what being a teaching
    organization is all about.

    yikes! im currently going through a bad ombre emperience. I got it done at
    an Aveda salon just north or Toronto. Total crap!

    Moral of the story: Go the DIY hair way.

    It’s very rewarding once you get good at it and people compliment your hair

    This sounds exactly like my old school Oceanside College of Beauty. Thank
    GOODNESS, I transferred!!

    wow this is bad! and such bad service. you don’t have to teas the hair to
    make it blend really, its all about taking small sections and little
    product on the tinting brush, and using very light strokes to begin with
    and then Appling more on the ends. you hair looks lovely now :)

    I want to say that I respect you so much for going back and attempting to
    salvage the situation. EXACTLY the same thing happened to my hair. I had
    had ombre hair for about 9 months and my salon unfortunately closed down. I
    had not had it re-done since the first time it was ombred, so I was letting
    it grow out. I started getting my hair cut by my friend who was training at
    the local college, since my salon had closed down; she cut my hair nicely,
    so I had always assumed the training at the college was adequate, but I
    still approached with caution. A few months down the line when my ombre was
    nearly grown out, that same friend asked me if I would be her hair-model
    for an assessment, for which she was required to lighten the hair as a
    colouring process. It was a few weeks before the assessment and I thought I
    had to go to work on the day she proposed, so said I wasn’t sure. She ended
    up finding someone else as a guarantee that she would have a model
    Closer to the assessment day, a couple of days before, she asked me if I
    would be able to sit for a friend. I was unsure, being that I didn’t know
    the person – but my friend assured me she would have had the same training,
    so I agreed to it, as a favour, despite the fact that my ombre had near
    enough grown out…
    The girl who did my hair had been training for 3 years, but the result was
    AWFUL. There was no graduated fade between my natural colour and the
    bleached tones, just a very stark line. I had recommended the back-combing
    technique my old stylist had used when first ombre-ing my ‘virgin hair’ but
    she did not oblige. It was quite literally dark brown meeting bright
    blonde. Awful. Her tutor attempted to fix it, but made it worse, creating a
    brassy orange colour between my natural brown and the now white-blonde.
    They attempted to fix it again, damaging it further. In total they bleached
    my hair three times that day.
    I ended up paying, as I was so mortified, luckily it was only £10. I wish I
    had said something, but I was in shock and had to attend a meeting that day
    (which they had made me late for given the time spent attempting to rescue
    my hair!) I had to attend a music festival that weekend and couldn’t get it
    repaired by my new stylist until a week later. Safe to say trying to hide
    my rectify my destroyed hair that weekend required some creative styling.
    Moral: be cautious and don’t tolerate slack service even if it is a favour.
    Most importantly, don’t pay if you’re not satisfied and stand-up for
    yourself if it’s not right. That’s something I wish I had done.

    wow youre gorgeous and so brave! how could someone be so rude to you? Youre
    so sweet. your new hair looks great!!!

  14. Risa Isa Fox February 11, 2014 at 10:22 pm #

    I dont mean to sound rude or anything, but just because they are teachers,
    doesnt mean they dont have real life experience in salons and/or arent
    actually working in salons in their spare time. My cosmetology teacher I
    currently have is amazing, knows completely what she is doing, and has 50+
    years of working in salons because she started when she was 16 and STILL
    does hair cuts/dye jobs and styling on the side when she has the time too,
    which is actually quite often. AND has owned her own salons. Just because
    they are teaching or are teachers does not mean they arent working in a
    salo part time.
    The teachers at most(not all sadly some beauty schools hire people who have
    no actual experience in salons) beauty schools have to have atleast 10 yrs
    of experience in salons.
    I have no idea where you went. But that place sounds horrible. 

  15. Amber Lilly February 13, 2014 at 4:34 pm #

    and this is exactly why you do it yourself 

  16. Kelsie LeCrone February 15, 2014 at 9:45 am #

    She just made it look like you hadn’t dyed your hair in a few months. Like
    it had massive dark roots.
    How could she think that looked good?

    And he was being a smart ass. I can’t stand people like that.
    You do everything humanly possible to be polite to them, and they still
    treat you like dirt.

    Mad respect for not popping off and staying calm. Ooo I’d be in a frenzy if
    I was treated like that. That boss man probably beats his wife. Image all
    the screaming he does to her at home! 

  18. n0ty0urfault February 21, 2014 at 9:57 pm #

    Let me tell you, my hair is my EVERYTHING. Mad respect for you being so
    sweet! I would have HONEST TO GOD told everyone that gave me an attitude
    like that. That lady, would’ve smacked her across the face and make her
    feel like shit, that owner, would have.. I don’t even wanna explain omg.
