I am a very experienced, local, and happy client of the Sassoon ACADEMY. I have been getting my hair serviced here for about 3 years now, I've never had a bad experience because I'm understanding that I'm being serviced by STUDENTS OVERSEEN BY A PROFESSIONAL. For those unhappy with their services at the Sassoon ACADEMY, please keep in mind before you get serviced you sign a waiver first line stating " I am fully aware that the Sassoon Academy is a school of cosmetology; that the operators/ students at the Academy are in the process of receiving instruction and training and are not yet skilled, trained persons; that the operators/students may not yet be licensed..." Mid way through the release of liability waiver, we also agree to “ Voluntarily and expressly elect to assume all risks ( including, but not limited to, the risk of personal injury, property damage, and emotional distress)..”
You are informed about the 15 minute grace period if you’re courteous enough to call ahead of time letting them know you will be late, as well as when you book the appointment. This is not a new phenomenon to any place you book an appointment, you’re given a 10-15 minute place hold, and after that the appointment is lost.
The service takes about 2 and a half to 3 hours because the students ( anywhere from 2 to 10) are overseen by an instructor from start to finish.
There is parking nearby; structure parking is an hour and a half free, then you're charged $1.85 for every 30 minutes after. For A DAY at the promenade you will pay $17.50, however, if you're being serviced the academy, you will be paying about $5.00 for parking. If you prefer free parking, that would be around California and 4th (North) or Pico and 4th (South).
What did you expect when you volunteer being serviced by an ACADEMY. If these services do not work with you guys, then try not booking with an ACADEMY.
