With a haircut only like $13 or something, you can't beat it. Remember, it is an academy, so you need to have patience. They put the students out on the floor to cut hair right before they graduate. I prefer them, although they sometimes take a bit longer, aren't as confident in themselves and ask advice of the teacher - I love them because they are just beginning, they are young and they love what they are doing. They are creative and if you're wiling to spend a couple extra minutes, I think you will really like them.
