After 11 weeks without a haircut, I went to the Eric Fisher Academy on Saturday. Several friends had recommended it and spoke highly of it, so I decided to try it out. When I had made the appointment I had thought of coloring my hair, but decided on just a cut. Once I got there, I decided I wanted color, so they were able to work that in. There were plenty of supervisors on the floor constantly walking around helping the students when they needed it, so I never felt nervous at all until it came time to pick the hair color. Eric Fisher himself was there and recommended red, so I picked a deep red color. They only colored sections of my hair more towards the top, but next time I color, I want the red highlights all over. At first, Roger thought the color looked like a magenta like the character in the movie Sky High, but now he says it looks red. I like it. I always said I would wait until I was 40 to color, but I just couldn't resist (I'm close enough to 40 now anyways). Everything cost me $35. It would cost $45 but I had a $10 off coupon from their website. If I had done this at my salon I've been going to for years, it would have cost me about $90. Besides the color, the cut was very well done, also--it's my same style, but the student did a good job. I think I want to go back.
