Thought it was time to bring this forum back
I went to JDH in October to get my hair done. It was the best cut I've ever had.
The hairdresser listened properly to what I do to my hair - wash and leave the heck alone and leave the house 5 mins later - and made sure I wouldn't have to spend ages on it. Ended up with a nice short in back long in front cut.
They do try to sell the Aveda products while you're there but are not too pushy.
I'm going back this weekend to get my hair done by the same guy - Keith. Will post if anything drastically bad or good happens to the curls!
