Default Anyone familiar with Paul Mitchell School?

Just wondering if anyone was familiar with Paul Mitchell cosmetology school or has had their hair done at one?

I was wondering because there's one here (Columbia, SC) and its only $10 for a trim (verses the $50 at others). I called the salon and asked how they trained their students to work with curly hair the person on the phone assured me that their students "are trained to work with all hair types." And when I pressed for more information on what that would look like she said they are trained to cut curly hair dry.
So, I was wondering if anyone else has been brave enough to try this or if maybe I should just splurge and go for the $50 deva cut elsewhere

If money is tight for you and $50 means a lot, I think I'd try it. I haven't been to a Paul Mitchell school for services but I've gotten pedis at the local beauty school. Of course a pedicure is much more temporary than a haircut. But the good thing about these schools is the students are supervised so they won't get too aggressive on you and I would think the teachers would get involved esp if you're asking for something unusual (dry cut). As long as you are just getting trim and not letting them cut a lot off, I think it would be worth a try.

I have been to the Paul Mitchell School in Provo, UT and I have always gotten the cheaper haircuts/services from the more beginner students. There's a name for it but I can't remember it right now. Anyway, they do a good job if you have straight hair. If you have straight hair, I feel like you can go anywhere. In terms of curly hair, they don't have a clue. They certainly have never cut my hair dry, and the one time they did style it curly, they did not use enough product and made my hair big and with not very much definition. Additionally, they always take 2 hours to cut hair, a very long time for not the best results. Also, the manicure was the most horrible one I have ever received, even worse than ones I have ever given myself and I am not very good at nails. Trust me, though it is cheap, it is a waste of time and money better spent elsewhere.
