Additional Notes

Complaint: I started school on 9/10/2013. My school funds were disbursed on 8/25/2013. I am scheduled to go on the clinic floor, but I don't have my full kit to perform services such as a Vidsl Sassoon color book and my entire sheer kit (approximately$1600 in value). It has bern months and several conversations of different excuses. I'm expected to perform client services with " lenders". My kit was paid for in full on 8/25/2013.

Desired Settlement: I want the rest of my kit at a discounted price. I want an honest explanation as well.

Re:       Brillare Hairdressing Academy: Response to Complaint from Ms. ***** ***
Better Business Bureau Complaint Management 1D# 9806054

Dear Mr. Doss,

I am writing in response to the Bureau's November 17, 2013 communication regarding the about
referenced complaint from Ms. ***** ***, a student enrolled at our Scottsdale campus.

We are adjusting Ms. ***'s account, per her request for resolution: She will receive the entire kit at no

Regarding the shears, Ms. *** should have her sheers by the time she reads this response, or within a day
or two thereafter. We have been assured of that by the supplier.

Regarding Ms. ***'s scheduled move to the Clinic Floor and the need for her to have the Sassoon Colour
book, we are working to make that happen too. To be honest, we do not have a definitive date on the
latter, and would ask that Ms. *** bear with us on this issue. She should know, however, that she will
get her book. In the meantime, please know that the absence of the Sassoon book does not in any way
affect her work on the Clinic Floor. She will have access to the instructor, demonstrations, invited
artist/stylists, tools and supplies, and supervised on-hands experience with clients, none of which is
dependent on having the book.

I believe that we have addressed all of Ms. ***'s concerns, and honestly responded to each, as she asked.
Thank you for bringing them to our attention, and for your assistance in resolving this matter.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I started at Brillare Hairdressing Academy on June 3rd 2013. I was told upon enrollment that we would receive our cosmetology kits the first day of school. Myself and another student was told that they have not received them yet and it would be the following week. The 2nd week passed and still no kits and no books. I continued to ask and I was eventually told that they were on back order and it would be about 3 weeks. The day class that started prior to our class is going on the 8th week with no books or kits. They broke my contract. They charged my financial aid 3,200 for kit that we did not receive. I am no told that if I wish to withdraw myself I would be charged. I feel that it is unjust, since they originally broke the contract with straight up lies. They should of never started students knowing that the kits and books are on back order. I felt I was played. How am I suppose to learn how to do hair with no tools or books. I know have to find another school to go to, so I can proceed with my dreams and goals on becoming a cosmetologist.

Desired Settlement: I do not want to be charged for anything, since they wasted my time and breaking the contract on their end. I feel they should apologize to myself and other students, that they lied too. They need to get things together before having students start school. Be honest with everyone

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
