Does anyone have experience with getting color/highlights at Xenon with a master stylist (or even a student)?

Re: Xenon

  • In college, I had friends that had good experiences there, so I thought I'd try. I had dark brown hair with VERY subtle blonde highlights. I said I just wanted to renew the highlights and cut. The student was taking too long, so she had a fellow student do the other side of my head. In the end, I was COMPLETELY blonde, and they fried my hair. It took years to get fixed....we couldn't color it, as it was completely fried. Never again....never. Oh, and I asked for senior students.

  • I went to beauty schools a lot when I was in college in Des Moines, and went to Xenon a few tims after I moved to Omaha, and always had a good experience. The only reason I wasn't crazy about Xenon is that I thought they were kind of pricey for a beauty school (not sure what their prices are now), and for a little bit more, I could go somewhere else and be done in half the time.
  • I personally prefer Capitol over Xenon. My brother used to do hair and I had a cousin who went to Capitol and the staff were sooo nice and they did a perfect job. I went to Xenon once when I had a friend there who was almost done. She got the color approved by the instructor and still f'd up my hair. Like made it super more blonde then I wanted and then added toner to lighten it - which they charged me for. They also charged me extra b/c she had to mix the color twice. I didn't think that was fair since she should have made enough the first time since I have long hair!
