I went in with pretty awful hair to begin with, but I left with even worse hair. To begin with, my appointment was at 9:00am and the hairdresser didn't even come up to greet me until 9:15. She was so rough with my hair to the point where it hurt. Se did such an awful job at trimming my hair that at one point I had a 90 degree angle cut, which the instructor tried to fix, but she could not do much without taking off a lot of length. I can get over the cut but I cant over the fact that my hair is so damaged and fried from her straightening it. I would do anything to go back in time and cancel this appointment. I left the salon with an uneven cut (even after the instructor "fixed" it) and damaged hair. I understand she was a student but if Marvel College is letting these girls work with real people when they don't know what they are doing, that is very disappointing and I won't take the risk of going to MC ever again.
Great place, good loacation in downtown red deer, doesnt smell bad like bleaching hair or anything, nice reception, and pleasent hair dressers in training. I have never been dissipointed going here,and have been going here for over a year now. My hair is difficult, long, curly, very thick, and they are always accomidating, sometimes give me deals because I use so much product, great prices! the ladies show their personalities, and are chatty and can keep up a good conversation up. I would suggest bring maybe a magazine or something to read, as they are learning and might take alittle longer then a full priced salon. Even if you do get the odd "dud" nothing can go wrong as the teacher supervises and watches over and has to approve of what they are doing. Very personal and ask what you like and dont like about your hair and keep a record of what colours they used the last feww times so it makes it easier and I dont have to explain what I would like. I am a dark brown naturally and they always pull a brilliant blonde that I am ALWAYS happy with!
The atmosphere is hip and inviting, a very nice modern salon, lots of mirrors, so you can always look at something interesting. (I am a people watcher myself)
After hair is washed, they style and trim for free! The lasies always show me the products that would benefit my hair, and would re construct after colouring. And their salon products are cheaper then in the salons, and same brand! A I will always go here for my hair, very pleasant experience
