Empire Beauty School
United States
I went for a modeling, so they ask for something you would like to do. Every one knows that it is a school and they practice with dolls and then with people. well i request highlights and even show a picture. the thing is that the women that supose to do said i know how to do it. But then she start asking others and others and i just triying to be calm i let her do it and at the end my hair was a big mess, i ask them to tint my hair with only one color because of the results, they said that they ca not give more stuff free, and I said a have been nice, i'm not getting or being rude with you after the results, so i expect the same from you. the only thing they did was put tint just to color the yellows and oranges, and thats it. they said if a want something else a have to comeback later and pay for it. i expect the wrong way, as a profetional school they should be responsables with their students mistakes and not just because you were a model make a big mess in your hair and send you home.

its a beauty school honey... there still learning! Also for your information, 9 times out ot 10, highlights do come out funky colors untill they are toned(not tinted). Once they are toned, you will see the results you expected.

You must of been what they call a "360 Client" where you let a student practice on your hair before they go on the floor to service paying coustomers.
I go to Empire Beauty, and although it may be diffrent from school to school, I find it hard to believe this happend. A girl I know who was just a student in 360 messed up on two peoples hair, and the teachers fixed it, and it was all free of charge. They will try and give you what you want, but if they aren't able to, the will put the color back to what it was before. As far as perms and what not, it is kinda hard to fix them. What's done is done, but from the sounds of it you didn't have a perm or relaxer.
Another thing that could of happend is if you had box color in your hair, they are only allowed to match that color or go darker. So if you lied about having box color in your hair, and the new color came out spotty that is why. Every Empire School uses the same line, and that line isn't compatable with box dye, and will mess up the color, and can often times make it spotty or splotchy. If that is the case, that is why they wouldn't give you what you wanted, just fixed the mess, and told you if you wanted something different that you would have to come back and be a paying coustomer.
If none of what I said happend, and you still feel like you were treated unfairly, I'd suggest contacting the main office and placing a complaint, from what I hear they take things very seriously.
Good luck.

I always get my hair done at Empire and I never have that kind of experience. You seem to be kind of dumb for a model. Your sentences don't make sense and your words are spelled wrong big time. Anyways if you are scared for mess ups then ask for students who are close to graduating to do your hair for you instead of students who just got on the floor. Eventually, it is a beauty school for starters. What do you expect, professional to go there? The prices are very reasonable and if you know students that goes to Empire you even get a 50% of discounts. Students are supposed to be practicing on people... how are they gonna learn how to do hair if they don't get any practice at on on real people. Also everyone that thinks about getting their hair done at any schools should not expect that all result will come out the way they like it... If you want nice hair then pay more and go to a professional salon and pay over$200 just to get your hair color and cut the way you wanted. But it's a gurantee that 3 out of 10 people still aren't satified with their results even when it's professionaly done. Hair will always grow back and if you don't like that color you can always change it. So suck it up.

Wow Micai, sounds like you have a serious problem. I suggest you get a hair implant. Perhaps they can take hair from your anus. It might be a little curlier but hey...at least you'll have hair. Oh ya...don't forget to have them remove any T.P. cling ons that might have gotten caught before plugging the folicles. Good luck.

I am a student at this school and it has been the worst experience of my life. I now have 6 weeks until graduation, love the field, hate the school, strongly dislike the staff. They are uncaring, they like to favor and blame every issue on the students. Front desk teacher or staff member has no idea what she is doing, over books and does not give clients the satisfaction they need. This place is an absolute joke, they have no idea on how to run a business. I have never felt so down graded in my life. They forget we are students. I wish state boards or any one higher would fix this school. Who ever has hired these people are clueless. I hate it and I would never recommend this school to anyone, even someone that I loathe. Biggest joke ever.
