i went here today for the first time for a facial because i have driven by so many times and finally decided to go in. anyways the facial was so great and really relaxing. and the student was really knowledgeable and recommended that i return for microdermabrasion and i totally will. my skin feels so great after such a dry winter. i am going to tell my friends.

A neighbor had recommended that I try this place for a cheap trim. I walked out--two hours later--with my hair absolutely hacked to bits and seriously p-oed. I can't imagine that they would allow a stylist who couldn't even handle a TRIM to cut clients' hair. The stylist obviously had no idea what she was doing. Somehow my "trim" ended up with a huge, unexplained 3-inch chunk out of the side in the name of "layers." Her instructor needed to finish the cut, which is HORRENDOUS. Believe me, you won't save any money here. But you will pay a price. I'm going to be growing out this atrocity all summer.

Pros: you may think price but you'd be wrong

Cons: inexperienced stylists, horrible service, awful atmosphere

I can agree with the other reviewers by saying that I would not go here for hair services. They really are not supervised and do not pay much attention to what you want done (I went for an up-do). I would however, recommend this to people who are looking for cheap spa services. They do a great job with facials. My favorite service here is the combined face and back facial. They use lots of product on you, put a mask on your back, get rid of as much congestion as they can - and leave you feeling fabulous. I would definitely recommend this as it is a fraction of the price you would pay at a real spa.

PROS: Great for facials
CONS: Unsupervised stylists, poor decor

I had been impressed with the Pivot-Point Evanston campus so I tried this school in Chicago and boy was that a mistake. The student had basically no supervision - I saw one teacher, but she didn't try to give any pointers to the student. I told the student I was pregnant but she did not warn me that my perm might not take right, and she put way to many rollers on my head and took a VERY LONG TIME. I will not go back here ever again.
