Its nice to be a hair model, you get a free haircut and free hair products. But when you have to sacrifice a few months to grow out a badly layered cut that was done with a razor you have to consider whether or not "free" was really worth it.
I have gone to several hair modeling schools to get a hair cut from other companies such as Aveda, Loreal, Vidal Sassoon, etc.
You can pass on Bumble and Bumble and go to these other places. These days most schools do offer these hair model opportunities and you need not settle on B&B.
Not only did I have a bad experience but most of my friends, who have volunteered their hair within the past years, also experienced a bad cut. This leads me to believe they have consistently been practicing bad cutting techniques or have not properly trained their trainees.
Hair cutting techniques change every year so its evident when my friends return from B&B's trainee program with a strange looking bob, a shaggy dog layered hair cut or even a short pixie cut that has been razored too high in the back.
I just shake my head and tell my friends that I rather pay out of my own pocket for their next haircut if the Free factor of B&B is too hard to refuse.
