The Advanced Training Salon is a great value for the services. Here you know the sylists have been through extensive training at the Academy, and screened based on their skills for the Advanced Training Salon. The common misconception is that they take everyone who graduates the Academy. The take the best of the best. They are going through the advavced training to become GJ stylists and work for the salons. Timing is not what this salon is about. They are perfecting an art. That can take time. This is why their stylists at the GJ salons are so good. If you want your appointments cheap and fast, try Best Cuts or Great Clips. This salon is a step down to a luxury salon. They will give you what you want, but allow yourself the time to spend. Overall a very good value!
