What a scam. I thought I was buying a makeup course. I ended up buying a get together with a few girls and practice your own makeup. I learned absolutely nothing. There was no teaching involved at all, the "instructor" was useless! Then they made you do a photo shoot and charged for the photos. Which were the worst photos I have ever seen of myself. What a waste of time and money. Do not go here!
We didnt even make it to the studio. After 2 weeks of trying to cancel the booking, and lots of promised call backs from managers that didnt happen. i was then told i would be charged a cancellation and no show fee of £250!! After cancelling the card and many snotty emails to double take i received a call this evening. Finally got the message through that they will not be charging my card after all we had been trying to cancel this for 2 weeks! The guy i spoke to was rude, wanted me to go to london from huddersfield to listen to the call recordings where Kevin had said that i would be fully refunded providing we cancelled before the day. When i asked him to pay for my train fayre and accomodation, he declined. Wouldnt play the call down the phone and wouldnt send in an email. The outcome was, 'we wont charge your card but you wont receive the £50 booking fee back', i said thats all ive asked from day 1!!!! he then advised that if i wanted to go ahead with the experience on a different day, i could book this with no charge and the £50 will be refunded once attended......
Excuse me but why would i book again with you when ive received such appauling service?!!!!
Dont book it guys, all just a con if you ask me.
Well I can tell you that Double Take certainly does what it says on the tin! I have never done so many double takes in my life.
I did a double take when I saw the studio that was disorganized and a total mess. I did another double take after I had my hair done, it was dreadful and despite 45 minutes of them styling it it looked less attractive than it did when I waked in on a particularly blustery day. I did another double take when I looked in the mirror at my so called professional make up that looked more like my 4 year old daughter had done it with her crayons and I did yet another double take when I saw the pictures that were frankly rubbish. The biggest double take of all was when I saw the price of the pictures! Daylight robbery! The four hour experience turned into 6 hours because they seemed to be short staffed and we had an endless wait in between treatments, we were not offered any refreshments at all and we had to go out to get food and drinks ourselves because we were going to fall over from thirst and hunger.
My friend and I had spent weeks looking forward to our makeover and it turned out to be one of the worst days of my life.
The staff were rude, all bar the make up lady who was very friendly despite her incompetence, no attention was paid what so ever to what we wanted and how we wanted to look, and no attempt was made to apologize for the totally unacceptable waiting around time either.
The photographer seemed to know what he was doing but we only got to have photographs taken in two of the four outfits we had chosen to take along for the pictures, he said he had got enough material from the first two outfits which in my opinion is completely besides the point.
The viewing session was a total joke and we did not have the opportunity to spent time choosing the shots we wanted and to make matters even worse they pushed us so hard into buying all of them I was half expecting them to put guns to our heads.
In the end I walked out, without any of the pictures and went to the nearest department store, brought some make up remover and removed the comic relief type make up they had put all over my face.
Don’t use Double Take; you would get a better makeover in the chimpanzee section of the zoo!
