Glenn cut my hair about three weeks ago, but I scheduled a consultation with him two weeks before the cut. Glenn is very patient and actually listens. He gives suggestions, but isn't pushy about giving you a style you're not comfortable with. I felt very comfortable.
When I went to Glenn, my hair was a mess. I used a chemical straightener at home, and I left it on too long so my hair was really kinky and looked like over processed straightened hair. I have naturally dense, coarse, 3b/c hair and on a bad day, it easily looks like a huge mushroom. Glenn showed no fear.
He cut my hair dry. As my hair is slowly getting back too normal after the damage I caused, I can really see that Glenn's cut has helped my hair lay better and the layers look as if they belong together instead of like frizzy shelves.
I definitely recommend Glenn whether you have fine, barely there waves or kinky, massively huge type 4 hair. He is very patient and tries to figure out what is best for both you and your hair. I also like that he didn't push the Deva products, which my hair hates. And he is the only stylist that ever noticed that my hair strands are coarse so loading them down with protein-rich products never works.
My experience with Glenn was fantastic! He spent time in the beginning of our visit asking me questions about my hair, the products I used and what I wanted out of my appointment with him; he also took time to "get to know my hair" by looking through the layers and seeing how it fell naturally. He did an excellent job of explaining why he cut my curls the way he did and teaching me how to utilize my current products in a more effective way. I left my appointment with a very natural looking color that compliments my fair skin, as well as an awesome curly cut overall.
Beyond the salon service, Glenn is a blast to chat with - I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a curly cut or color. I can't wait to go back!
Glenn is awesome!!
I’ve gone to Glenn twice; the first time was back in May during the early phase of my natural hair grow out. I was really frustrated with the bulk of hair on the crown of my head; I requested that he cut my hair because I thought it would be more manageable to style. He asked me what my hair goals where, I answered “I want to grow it out”, he then told me that he would not cut my hair, he did something better, he provided education on how to style my hair at current length. He went through my daily routine and reviewed the products I was using. He washed my hair, educated me on how to apply my products, how to style and how to defuse my hair for my desired look. I left feeling more confident about my hair and about my ability to style my hair through the growth process. The second time I came in to see Glenn was after I experienced heat damage from a single straightening, YES STRAIGHTENING MY HAIR ONCE DAMAGED 8 MONTHS OF NATURAL HAIR GROWTH. I tried everything to reverse the damage (you name it, I tried it), but I knew the only way to get my curls back was to cut my heat damaged ends.
Glenn was amazing, he again sat with me and providing undivided attention. I described a tampered cut to him (allowing me to keep some of my length while still getting rid of the damaged hair), showed him a few pictures and let him do his thing. Glenn walked me through his cut and allowed me to see all angles as he went through the process. When Glenn was done I had my healthy hair back, I LOVED MY CUT and most of all I love the Glenn Charles experience. I can't wait to go back for my trim!!
I am an African-American woman with 4A curly hair. I've been natural about 4 years and just relocated to Dallas. Unfortunately, I had a bad experience with color at another salon and had to have 6 inches cut. Yeah, ouch! I was leery about trying Glenn as he is male, and not African American - I didn't know whether he would understand my dilemma and how traumatic the experience was. BOY, WAS I WRONG. Glenn TOTALLY understood, and gave me a great trim which shaped my hair beautifully utilizing the Deva cut method. Glenn was very patient and is proficient at his craft. My hair is now in his very capable hands. Thanks Glenn!!!
Love Glenn! He's really a curly hair expert.
He cuts my curly hair dry, curl by curl, and really takes his time. He then washes my hair and applies Deva products (which I also use and highly recommend). Then you spend some time under his crazy Deva bonnet dryer - hard to explain but you look a bit like a Martian and it works awesome to dry hair without frizz. He then cuts a bit more (even had me stand up to see how my curls did then) and finishes styling. Round trip it's about two hours because of Glenn's precision.
I always enjoy the time, too, because Glenn has great stories and we are able to strike up a good conversation. I drive about 45 minutes to see Glenn, but it's well worth it for his haircuts. Lots of people say they can cut curly hair, but Glenn really can!
Glenn is absolutely great, and getting your haircut by Glenn is an awesome experience.
I've had my hair cut by him twice and I've loved it. On both occasions Glenn took the time to look at my hair, feel it, see how the curls flowed, he asked me about what I wanted to do with my hair, and listened to what I said. Glenn has also made sure to teach me how and which products I should use to style my hair.
On this my last haircut appointment I went from having mid back length to above the shoulder, and I freaking love it! Glenn did an awesome, awesome job, he took his time, constantly checked in with my thoughts on how it looked, and always invites me to come back if there's anything I don't like once I style it myself. In the days following the appointment I've felt so free with bouncy curls!
If you are looking for someone to cut your hair, I absolutely recommend Glenn.
Glenn Charles is awesome! He did a great job taming and shaping my (3C ish) hair. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced with African-American curls. Don't hesitate to book with him; regardless of the curl type your hair, is in good hands
Glenn spent so much time with me and obviously cared about making me happy. When I left the salon, I had the hair I had always dreamed of. I never thought my hair could look like that, but Glenn showed me how. I am so appreciative.
Amazing!!! His Diva Cut was on POINT! He knew exactly how to get my hair to look like the pictures I brought in for him. For once in my life I left the salon with hair that was actually wearable for the rest of the day instead of rushing home to do it myself. This guy is my new go-to for my curly locks.
Glenn has been taking care of my hair since November, 2014. I found his name from the DEVA site and followed up to find out more about his experience with curly hair. It's no easy task to find someone who can take on my kind of hair (4A by this site's definition), but you can gauge someone's comfort with it when you meet them and they don't look like a deer in headlights. Glenn has cut and colored my hair, bringing me from a deep brown to a golden blonde in stages so as not to damage my hair. He took the extra step of adding conditioners into process, which is exactly what my hair needed to maintain my curl through three rounds of color. I get nothing but compliments every day and I've had people ask who does it. Always glad to refer someone to Glenn, curly or not.
Glenn is the absolute best!! He knows how to cut curly/wavy hair like no one else! He has saved my hair.
I originally heard about the DEVA cut from a friend who lives in New York and knew about their salon. She even bought me some products to try out in my hair and I saw a difference in just using the shampoo and conditioner and tried to save it only for special occasions. Recently I took a trip to New York and went to the salon there to go get more product. I am originally from San Antonio, TX but am currently living in Valdosta, GA. I happened to be coming home and knew there were no DEVA stylist in San Antonio. My brother lives in Dallas and happened to be coming to see him here. It turned out not only to be a great trip because I got to see him, but because I meet Glenn. The Michael Flores Salon was recommened to me by the New York stylist. I originally called to make and appointment with Angela who seemed highly recommened by her reviews. She in turn recommeneded Glenn, who also happens to cut her hair. He did what no other stylist has EVER been able to do with my hair, and that is to make it look AMAZING!! Glenn is very personable and friendly. He made me fall in LOVE with my curls and appreciate them. I have a lot of hair and curl, in the process I learned that all my curls start at a level 3 but are all DIFFERENT throughout. I even brought my Mom with me who has curly hair and she will be coming back to Dallas to see Glenn. She also feel in love with the whole DEVA process. The best thing about Glenn is that he really cares about his clients. The next weekend of my cut Glenn was so nice as to text and ask how I was liking my new cut. Also was willing to answer any questions or concerns that I had. It made me feel good that he takes pride in what he does. I will definitely be coming back the next time I am in Texas to see Glenn.
I am absolutely in LOVE with my haircut! I waited a few days to see how things went when I did it myself and the new cut weathered the humidity and I am still in LOVE! I am a multi-ethnic 3B curl-gurl with dark brown hair. Shine & frizz are definitely issues especially since I am new to Dallas. My other curly friends aren't faithful and committed to the DEVA method and I have been for almost a year so I was at a loss for stylists. After searching the naturally curly site, I found Glenn & Angela listed with great reviews. Since Angela had more reviews I tried to get an appointment with her, but she couldn't schedule me in my desired time-frame and recommended Glenn (who by the way is who cuts HER hair!). I'm so glad!!! Glenn was extremely attentive and responsive to me from the VERY beginning - I mean from the moment we talked on the phone to schedule the appointment. He's extremely professional AND extremely personable. He took the time to help me understand how I might have to change up the amount and type of products I've been using now that I'm in Dallas (rather than Detroit, MI) due to weather and such. He was efficient with the cutting process and careful to refer back to my pictures/desires AND styling routine as he went through the various textures and types of curls throughout my entire head! I have a TON of hair! His process is AWESOME and I had the most amazing cut AND a fantastic looking head of defined, shiny, sexy curls when I left - and throughout the day! I'm in LOVE with Glenn and I believe you should definitely go see him at the Michael Flores Salon.
Glenn works magic. He saved my hair. It was dry, dull and frizzy but after working with him the frizz is gone and my hair is healthy and shinny. Glenn worked with me to find the right styling products and taught me how to use them properly. His cutting technique has transformed my hair and made me proud to be a curly girl. He is a great colorist also. I get compliments on my hair all the time.
I want to thank Glenn for showing me very patiently how to care for and have great curly hair. I didn't even know curly hair was an option for me, until Glen got his curly hair fingers going. He has shown me more ways to do and care for my hair. I esp liked the last time I went to Glenn. He used hair clips to add volume to my hair, it wast romantic and not a frizzy hair in sight. A special thank you to Glenn for making me look great at 57, my hair is gorgeous. Cynthia Hackney
I was recommended to Glenn Charles by a friend with even curlier hair than mine. For years I've had the same shoulder length boring haircut that just lays flat on my head (I have very fine curly hair). Glenn met with me and told me about the Curly Girl method and we scheduled an appointment. The haircut itself was a very different experience since he free form cut my hair dry. He then spent lots of time explaining to me how to wash (or not wash), how to put product in and how to dry. It looked great leaving the salon and great the next day when I tried it out myself. I'm still experimenting but overall I love the haircut and Glenn was great. Highly recommended!
Glenn is awesome! He gave me a fabulous cut and has taken so much time to teach me how to style it so that I can make it look great at home. I am used to loving my hair when I leave the salon, but this is the first time I've been able to style it at home and really love it just as much. I would recommend Glenn to everyone with curly hair - he is the best!
