After going to the James Albert school in Orange County, I couldn't wait for these people to open their doors in my area! I was not disappointed. The young woman who did my hair colored and cut it perfectly and was very pleasant during the whole process. They gave me a good discount because I think it was a slow day. The salon itself is clean and well kept, which adds to the personal treatment. The people at the front desk are always pleasant and helpful. The only issue I have is their pricing is not uniform. The cost for a manicure or pedicure are almost the same (within a couple of dollars) as going to a regular salon. They quoted me $13.50 yesterday and when I called to double check the price they said $12.00 so I cancelled the appointment. My friend in the Orange County school said they charge only $3.50. I think they do too much based on how much they think they can get from you which does not lead to a feeling of confidence. We are not at a flea market, bidding for lower prices for services, are we? Other than that, if you think you can get a reasonable price, give them a try.
