An Eye-Opening Experience. I never used to care very much about my haircuts. It just didn't seem like there was that much of a difference between a good and mediocre cut. Then an acquaintance of mine, Kasey Vieu, began going to school at MetroOasis. The first time I went in, it was with a sense of bemusement. I'm wasn't sure what to expect, but, in all honesty, I was astonished at the result. After only a few layman descriptions at what I wanted, I walked out with such a great feeling of pleased confidence I knew I'd probably never go anywhere else again. The atmosphere of the shop is great. The teachers are nearby in case their advice is needed, but definitely do not hover; a clear sign of trust. Anything you could want is available, whether it be a cut, a dye, a style, or even esthetician work such as waxing. And for such a low price! There's also a cafe right next door, in case you'd like to linger over a coffee after your service. Go see for yourself, you'll definitely leave delighted. My advice: ask for Kasey. She's incredibly talented, hard-working, and a fun person to converse with. I've sent a lot of friends her way over the eight months, and have never gotten anything but rave reviews. I myself see her every three weeks like clock-work, and always leave with a cocky spring in my step. A Google User - Review - June 2012

Alaska is located northwest of Canada and is the largest but most sparsely populated U.S. state. This makes Alaska one of the best values for beauty school training in the entire United States. Alaska is known for its diverse terrain and open spaces, full of mountains and forests and abundant wildlife. This makes Alaska one of the most fun places to live. There about 738,432 people living in Alaska (2015) and about 301,010 (2014) live in Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska. This means we have all the essential requirements to have a great live but not such a huge population so that we have the problems associated with larger cities in the "lower 48". We also have the Alaska Student Loan program here in Alaska.
