Need to express my awesome experience..
The only reason I did not rate the Fayette Beauty Academy a five star establishment is because it could use new furnishings but everything else definitively is a 5 star rating. I was totally pleased with my tin foil highlights, the great care that was given to my damaged hair, (not sitting me under the dryer to speed up the bleach, taking the extra step of massaging the conditioner into the hair itself. The cooperation of the students with their fellow class mates, and the instructors made the time warm, comfortable and welcoming. The haircut was exactly what I ask for. I was there for most of the day, I did see alot of smiles from many satisfied customers about the service they received. Will definitely go many times more and will definitely recommend the academy to everyone.
Well, I thought if I could do my own highlights, surely a beauty student under supervision could do 'em better. I was dead wrong. The girl was sweet as can be and took her time trying to do her best. Unfortunately, she didn't have great technique and I walked out with stripes at my ROOTS and blotches of orange all over. That was after three hours and a "fix".
The worst part of the whole experience was that I never saw her teacher in that whole three hours - not ONCE, even when she went to the back to get advice on how to fix it.
So, I ended up with a cheap highlight that fried my hair and looked horrid. I went back to my regular salon and will never make that mistake again.
