WHAT’S NEW in Studio 102

Getting ready for the Spring weather and need a new look? Level 2 students are now ready to offer client days!

My regular hairdresser was a St. Louis Hairstyling graduate from years ago and now she left the city to work elsewhere. She was FANTASTIC! I’m sure you would echo my despair, when I couldn’t wait any longer… NOW WHAT?! I hesitated at first, having a student do my hair, but I trusted the instructors would oversee and check in. She took a ‘little’ longer (40 minutes vs. 30 minutes) to do the cut, but I walked away very pleased. Exceeded my expectations! ~ Michelle

I am a St. Louis staff member and I’ll take my lunch break to have a variety of salon treatments done.  I’ve been going to St. Louis’ Salon Client Days for YEARS, and even though it’s a different student every time, the results are the wonderful… a testament to the quality and consistency of instruction. ~ Nancy
