Agree with El D on the legit career path possibility. Like everything in NY, it's pretty competitive, but if you're good you'll move up. AFAIK, salons don't generally run background checks (actually I'd be shocked given the number of clearly insane stylists I've encountered ("Hey, Nina, thanks for taking me on such short notice. How's everything going?"--"Oh, it's going alright except my BF took out a restraining order on me.")) so much as they just relentlessly gossip about people once they are there and see how they fit in. Salon owners, however, needing a bank loan to open a shop in a clear high risk endeavor will most certainly be vetted and have every orifice examined and measured for future comparison, IYKWIM.

Reason: paranthetical flow
so i read the last 500 or so posts (since wvu came in) straight through, and i obviously had about 20+ comments or questions along the way, but i think i can get them down to 2:
--do white trash realize they're white trash? b/c i mean, salons, huffing, dui's, cheating while in jail....that ****'s white trash. so like basically, besides the 'i'm white trash and i'm proud!' types, white trash don't realize that to regular people they're white trash?
--in a vacuum, say like there's no way she can get your phone number, or you're from out of town, at a bar and will never see her again, it's gotta be like 99% of the men who read this thread that would **** her right?
question 2a: how many men who read this thread all the way through would still sleep with her if she DID get your number and you worked at the same mall? that number is harder to figure i think.
gl OP. you have issues that you're not ready to confront yet, i hope eventually you figure them out and end up happy.
To White Trash, there are always trashier. The fact she is actually in beauty school gives her a leg up over white trash that's just getting arrested doing nothing. Or that she doesn't have any kids. It's like how people always view rich people as someone who makes 2x as much as them, even if they make a ton of cash.
Michelle, this is not cool. Your life is not troll bait for internet pontifications and hilarity. We all, well most of us, post stuff on the internet wrongly for whatever reason; to vent, to seek approval, whathaveyou... but the idea that because of some minor legal trouble and a choice to be a stylist, you should put up with ridicule is beyond, well, ridiculous. Go forth and prosper.
El Diablo - I also want to add that Aveda schools are slightly above Paul Mitchell. Paul Mitchell still isn't bad, and I have definitely gotten my hair cut by students there once or twice. Aveda is more in line with Redken education.
At least coming from a consumer perspective, when I hear someone has Aveda training, I immediately trust them to cut my hair more.
