I went in for a trim and highlights, and though it took a while, the work was good for a reasonable price - $45. I have long hair, and two girls worked on my highlights. Highlights plus wash and blow-dry took almost 4 hours. Then the teacher pointed out there was a "bleed" in the back of my hair, which looked like a couple of blonde blobs. Other than that, the highlights looked really good. She offered to fix it herself, or said I could come back another time to get it fixed. I opted to have it fixed then, so she put on some more color, I waited until the color took, and then someone else washed out just that part of my hair and blow-dried it. Start to finish, it was 5 hours. But everybody was nice, and they were very apologetic about the mistake. This is the risk you take by going to a student, and I knew that. They had quoted me $65 up front, but dropped that down to $45 after the mistake. So I agree with the review that said if you have more time than money, this is a good place to go. You don't get the normal salon experience, with the hair wash massage, cup of tea, and those little touches. But if you just want a decent haircut and highlights for a good price, it's a good choice.

Terrible. This sad, corporate replacement for the CTA cards represents everything wrong with the world right now. First of all, when you call to activate your card, you get this elaborate debt slave song and dance enticing you to set your card up as a debit/credit card. You're given the flat and sad-sounding alternative option 2 if you want to bypass this option, and the instruction is foggy at best. I guess they're hoping people will be confused and press 1. The card readers are slow, and you often have to tap, re-tap, and re-tap your card to get the reader to read it. It's also a much less pleasant and much more digital-sounding, synthetic, machine-like tone than the old one. The web site is a clunky, poorly organized mess. When I needed to reset my password, I had to request an e-mail with reset instructions 3 or 4 times before it finally went through. I lost my card and ordered a replacement. It was slow to arrive, and though I followed all the activation instructions, my balance from the lost card didn't automatically transfer over to the new card (this worked automatically with the old CTA cards), so the new card didn't work when I tried to use it. I logged on to the site and tried to activate the new card, but it kept saying the numbers were invalid and would not let me move forward. So I called customer service. The wait was mercifully short, but the poor guy who answered sounded like a robot on pharmaceuticals who hated his job. I can't imagine anybody would blame him. I'm told my issue will take 48 hours to resolve, due to "high call volume". A quick search on Wikipedia reveals that Ventra is owned by Cubic Corporation, "an American public corporation providing military defense equipment and automated fare collection equipment... headquartered in San Diego, California, with offices in North America, Europe, India, and Australia." Why am I not surprised that a military defense equipment corporation that made more than a billion dollars last year can't get this right? I'm sad that the CTA system that worked quite well before was bought out by this monstrosity. What is the world coming to?
