This was my first visit to Paul Mitchell School referred by my daughter. First let me tell you, I have thick, coarse, gray hair and have difficulty finding someone who could tame the mane. I have actually been turned away by a stylist once she took a look at my hair. I keep the general attitude.....it’s hair, if anything goes wrong it will grow back, plus the price .....phenominal. My appointment was with Sydney, a friend of my daughter. She looked at a pic of what I was looking for and was “warned” of my hair. She was up for the challenge. And a challenge it was. The style was a bob with a dramatic angle to length in the front. Sydney NAILED IT! Not only was I impressed, but her teachers/instructors were as well. Understand, this is a school of cosmetology so spend time letting a student learn! I have rebooked already and plan on following Sydney once she graduates in December.

************WARNING YOU************ BEFORE YOU THINK THAT BECAUSE IS A PAUL MICHELLE SALON YOU GOING TO BE TREATED RIGHT, THIS WAS THE WORST SALON EXPERIENCE EVER, of my life entire life , by far! I got to the salon at 9:30 AM for color and haircut and END up leaving the salon at 8 PM, after been threatened by receptionist on calling the police on me because I refused to pay the $200+ they wanted me to pay for FRYING MY HAIR. Very unprofessional....TOTALLY CARE LESS...This nightmare experience took 10 hours ! The place is totally unprofessional. The teachers have no idea of what they are doing. And of course Now I have to go pay someone else to correct the damages done to me hair. And is not going to be cheap . This is the same thing that happened to someone else in here, who wrote a review and I ignored , so I am warning you ....AVOID THIS PLACE NOT PROFESSIONAL AT ALL.
If you are seeking to go to cosmetology school here, DO NOT GO HERE! In my student career, I've experienced nothing but trouble. The staff are ABSOLUTELY disorganized, unstable and they show favoritism to different students. When you try to graduate, things concerning finances, are mentioned to you at the last minute and you are not released until you pay THE SCHOOL. There are two different payments. One payment to who financed your loan for your contracted hours and then to the school for when you go over your contracted hours. It is nearly impossible to graduate on time because it is up to you to bring people in. If you were a student like me, I did not have family supporting me to get me through school. I only had myself. So Stay away from here. You are better off going to Sherril's, Miller mont, or wake tech for a cosmetology school. Its amazing how the teachers got certified because even though these teachers can do excellent art in hair, they are terrible educators. The two teachers "Chloe and Sara", are not of any help what so ever. So if you decide to go here, you better know somebody who can help you or say a prayer everyday because its absolutely a test of your patience.
Stopped by to see about applying to become a student here and was greeted with stares. There seemed there was not anyone knowledgeable about the program. The friendliest people in the school were the teenagers behind the front desk. If I had to sum this place up in a few words it would be Ghetto and Unprofessional. It's a shame because the space has so much potential. Don't waste your time!!!
WORST HAIRCUT AND EXPERIENCE of my life by far! I purchased a Groupon for a treatment and haircut and I went in for a simple long bob cut with a few layers at the end. The girl butchered my hair! Ended up with a long, stacked shag on one side, chunks missing on the other side and short layers on top! A second girl attempted to fix it but it was basically beyond repair. The so called "instructor" acted like it wasn't a big deal and never even apologized for what this student did to my hair! I could've done a better job myself blind folded! Very unprofessional and did not even attempt to compensate in any manner! This nightmare experience took 4 hours as well! The place is totally unprofessional with music blaring and young girls running around chatting around you like it is a slumber party. I could've tolerated that had I gotten at least a decent cut. Now I have to go pay someone else to correct what's left of my hair. AVOID THIS PLACE.
NEVER EVER GET YOUR HAIR DONE HERE, You think of the name Paul Mitchell and you think wow, Let me try this out. I hate giving this place 1 star. I was there to get color/cut, just a simple brown color and cut. The student and the instructors turned my hair bright orange and yellow and my hair was so uneven, I had to end up going the next day to someone and pay $200 to fix the damage. DONT FOOL YOURSELF, I won't get fooled again.
DO NOT GO! CHARMAINE the OWNER IS SMOKING CIGARETTES INSIDE!!!!!!! I scheduled an appointment for my daughter & I to have a nice day out together. My daughter was getting a manicure & myselft a pedicure. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean & sanitary the students were during the services. The student was very gentle & patient with my 3 year old and even brought out a sparkle polish for her. They were great. During the service I noticed a strong smell of smoke. At first I just figured it was from the door opening/closing and smoke was wafting inside. But the smell had become stronger & stronger and continued to for a few minutes. Now the smell of smoke was so strong it had started to give me a headache and made my stomach turn (and i grew up with both parents smoking) so I knew the smell. I had reached my limit when my 3 year old daughter commented on the 'Yucky' smell. I asked the student if someone was smoking inside the building and she shrugged and pointed towards the other room. I LOUDLY Commented to my 3yo on how RUDE it was for someone to SMOKE INSIDE. And then a few seconds later I heard a vent or fan turn on. I asked the student if that was the owner/teacher who was smoking and she shyly nodded and I asked if she does this often and rolled her eyes. She was very careful not to say too much but the point was made. After I picked my jaw off the floor in complete shock that the INSTRUCTOR/Owner of a Manicuring college was smoking INSIDE THE BUILDING while THREE YEAR OLD was present , I tried to keep a happy face for the sake of having a nice time with my daughter. After the services I went to tip the students and thanked them for being so great with my daughter. Charmaine had turned from her computer and said 'Hope you can come back soon!' And I just couldn't bite my tongue any longer. I told her that I was in shock that the owner of a Manicuring college with students using such sanitary practices would be smoking cigarettes indoors while clients were present, including a 3 year old! Her first reaction was to try to ignore me by turning back to the computer and hope I would leave. But I put my foot down & told her it was unacceptable to be smoking indoors in 2013 and how unprofessional it was to do so in front of clients, including a young child. She then had the nerve to deny it!!!! Saying she didn't smoke (your hoarse throaty voice can't lie, you smoke lady. ALOT!) and she didn't know anything about the smell. Now there were only 4 people in the college when I first came. The girl answering phones left during my services, so that only leaves 3 people, and the 2 students were with us the entire time, so that only leaves ONE PERSON. CHARMAINE! She tried to blame the smell on Dominos across the hall but I said; 'It doesn't smell like burning pizza, its smells like a burning cigarette!!!!! AND you have the audacity to light up with a young child in the building!!' She continued to deny it and acted shocked over the thought. So I asked 'Since you weren't smoking inside then wouldn't mind if i would just pop into your office to have a look around??? Surprise, surprise, She denied me access to the office. I told her repeatedly that smoking indoors was a MAJOR health code violation and I will be following up with a complaint, both online & to the board of health. She tried to BS the wrong person today! I am just shocked that a 'Manicuring College' 5 mins from the state board can be ran & operated by such a lowlife trashy person who smokes cigarettes indoors and then tries to deny it to the clients face! Listen Charmaine, you may get by lying to other folks daily, but I will not stand for it. If my daughter wasn't with me I would've got much more off my mind. Charmaine you are a SHAME to the ENTIRE Manicuring industry and shouldn't be teaching ANYONE how to handle a business when that is how you handles yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!
