On a personal note, I have never been more disgusted with myself than when I walked into a local Hair Club. A used car salesman was less fake with me than those blithering idiots. The woman actually tried so desperately to wrangle me into 4k worth of 'laser combs and head massages' that she went on to tell me a female co-worker had the procedure. She drug the poor woman in there (who had a massive full head of hair), and she looked so incredibly guilty about lying to me..... I politely told them I would buy a weave (sarcastically) before they ever got a penny out of me. Honestly, one of my low points in all of this.
Now that I've said all of that, overall it's a good buy. Although they have a pretty bad press (Bosley-esque), they make a good portion of Regis' profits considering their overall small presence within the company. Tie that in with 'knowledgeable' staff and several key locations across the U.S., and I see a good investment strategy.
