I discovered Paul Mitchell School about a year ago. I have been going every 4-6 weeks ever since. I have naturally curly hair and the fact that I can get it washed, cut and blown straight for $15 is a steal. I’m not real adventurous, I usually just get a trim with my square long layers, since my hair curls it’s difficult to mess that up, not sure I would trust a student if I wanted a drastic change but I feel like my trim is good practice for them and a deal for me, the major bonus for me is getting my hair blown straight! They are always super friendly. I warn you to prepare for a long day, especially of you are getting color! I don't mind this at all. However, if you are in a hurry and looking for a 15 minute cut or have a high strung personality you should go elsewhere, these are students. Realistically expect 2.5 hours for cut/style and 5 hours for cut/color/style. I feel the experience is pampering, I look at it as me time. The students are brimming with knowledge so they always talk about your hair/products/habits extensively before proceeding. Then they discuss with the learning leader (Cameron is amazing). Throughout the haircut and dry the teacher will stop by to check and often help. Many times I have had two people working on me at the same time and it just makes me feel even more pampered. I feel like it is a great value for the money and it is a great experience. NOT recommended for impatient or type “A ”personality people but if you have a few hours to kill and have patience I definitely recommend Paul Mitchell School.
