Salon review. This was my first ever visit and my last. I went to get a hair cut and an ombre. My hair was long and naturally spiral curly. Before hand, I called and asked if someone there had experience with cutting curly hair. The answer was yes, so i made an appointment. The woman that cut my hair applied dye directly to my scalp. That's not the kind of ombré I was wanting. Then, Because my hair is curly I was expecting her to straighten my hair with a flat iron and then cut it dry. She said she can cut it with out doing that. So I trusted her. I came out looking like a two year old got ahold of a pair of scissors and cut their own hair. My "ombré" looked like a 3 month old hair style that needed mayor attention! When I got home I straighten my hair to see what it really looked like and the results were horrifing. I went to Walmart and bought a do-it-yourselfer die kit and died it back dark brown (which is my natural color). While at Walmart I stopped by the smart style salon and stold them my store and showed them the damage. They told me to go get my money back. So i Did! Or tried to.. By the time I went back to JCPenneys I had already died my hair with the self kit, so they only refunded me for my hair cut and half of the color treatment. Which I think it's not fair enough because eventhough I died my hair back brown, you could still see where the woman at JCPenneys tried to ombré my hair by applying the color to the roots of my temples. I got ripped off. I paid $105 for this visit and only got refunded $68. That's better than nothing but i should have gotten the full amount back! I had to have someone at Walmart fix my hair and I'm not putting anymore dye in it because of the damage. So now I have to live with ugly roots! It's not like I can grow new hair in a couple of months! My hair takes years to grown out! DO NOT GO HERE! They are horrible with curly hair and then on top of them screwing my hair up they wouldn't even refund me my hole amount. Cheap, bad service, and bad business! Stay away.

City of New Bern Electric
do NOT get city of new bern power if you can help it! in july they started charging the usual late fees for late payments, and now they also charge you a DEPOSIT!!!! then, they say they will make a payment plan for you to pay the outrageous deposit, (which they get by adding you two HIGHEST bill in 24 months) and they break it down to 10% for each month. and you also have to go there to the office every month to ask for a payment agreement to keep this plan, which is going to make it look like you can't pay your bill all of a sudden. looking for the city managers office e-mail now to complain. he makes 140,000 a year, most of us work 11 hours a day, and pay our bills as soon as we get payed. so all we can do is call attorny general in NC. and file a complain, cause charging a late fee AND deposit at the same time sounds illegal. it should be anyway

Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
