After reading such good reviews I decided to give this place a shot since I was in need of a trim and went ahead and asked for a curly consultation to see if I could get some personalized advice. First the negatives: I was not really impressed with the products that they carry. While waiting for my appointment I started reading the labels of some of the products specifically for curly hair and they all had various types of silicone. Even the Paul Mitchell sulfate-free shampoo had silicone in it! Talk about missing the point. The consultation wasn't exactly what I was hoping for either, mostly just reinforcing some things that I'd already heard elsewhere. She was extremely nice and friendly, though, and put emphasis on a couple of things I had been neglecting like using deep conditioning treatments and how I dry my hair. The best part of my visit was the trim I got. I have very very thick hair and a lot of stylists recommend getting layers to cut down on the bulk, but it never fails to give a weird shape to my hair no matter who does it. Jacquie didn't even suggest layers, in fact she knew immediately to avoid it. Instead she did something I honestly had never seen a stylist do by pulling out random individual curls to thin my hair rather than just going in sections. The result is so much more natural looking! She finished off with the twist method to emphasize my curls, which I absolutely love but never have the patience to do myself and I got amazing second-day hair out of it too. Definitely worth the trip in my opinion.
Joseph Miller is the best stylist I have ever had! He understands my strange course thick wavy straight hair and always makes me look amazing. I would also trust the other stylists in this salon they are all amazing but Joseph will always be my guy. Great decor, easy to find, chic yet homey. LOVE this place!
So my sister comes out and visits me once a year from Virginia and going to have Jacquie cut her hair has become part of the trip. She wrote a previous review (on my account) after her first visit to J. Scordato Salon. Jacquie is uncommonly knowledgeable when it comes to cutting curly hair and also very aware all curly hair is NOT the same! I took a daughters friend with me on this trip and Jacquie gave her a wonderful cut. I was next and we both left very pleased with Jacquie's expertise with curly hair. I am a 2 C, 3A and my friends daughter is a 3B and Jacquie approached our different curl patterns individually! I am very grateful to have found Jacquie after a long search for someone who actually does know how to treat my hair! Cindy McCracken
Jacquie is very professional and highly-skilled. She did a fantastic job with my thick, tightly-curled hair, which I had wanted cut into a very short pixie cut. I'm really pleased with the amount of attention to detail and her skill-level is top-notch. The whole atmosphere is very positive; the stylists interact with each other and engage the clients; it is evident that they are very passionate about their trade. I've already ready recommended this place to co-workers, which is the first time I've felt compelled to do so. Just a note that this salon is located at Ft Lowell and Alvernon and is a small, free-standing building. If you are driving North on Alvernon, just before the intersection turn right into the Circle K lot which will allow you easier passage into the parking area for the salon located in the back. This is easier then just making a left turn at the intersection and then trying to enter in from the Ft Lowell side.
My curls are unusual - I obtained them after running a very high fever during a thyroid storm. The back is VERY curly, while the sides and top need more encouragement - they do get there, though. I only recently discovered the whole sulfate and simethicone/dimethicone issues with hair products - I rid myself of those chemicals and my curls were on their way back! But it was after my cut with Joseph that my hair started looking like it's old self again - all curly. :) Last Friday, I went to J Scordato Salon and met Joseph for the first time. He's a really nice person and KNOWS his way around curly hair. I walked out of there with really awesome looking curls as well as some good hints and ideas for styling! I have waited a few days, however, to post my review because I think one needs a couple of shampoo/styles on their own after a cut to get to know just how good a cut is. Joseph, are you ready? You've got a new tail, baby... LOL :) I know I won't be looking anywhere else for my cuts any more. THANK YOU, JOSEPH! If I could give you 10 curls, I would. My daughter is a curly girly too and she is looking forward to having Joseph cut her hair after her grows out a little.
I walked in a mess and walked out a cute hottie. Jaquie did a wonderful job. Now is when I decided to go natural and let my "curl power" shine through and Jaquie was my initiator into this world and I would have chosen no other. My only sadness is that I live on the other side of the U.S. and will not be able to return. However, not all hope is lost, I got my curly headed sister a gift certificate so she will be able to experience the magic that Jaquie can do.
I'm not kidding when I say I have a nervous break down every time I think of going to a new stylist. I have very kinky curly hair that has been ruined by many stylists. Danielle was very understanding and took really good care of me. She encouraged me to try something different and I love it! I won't be going anywhere else!
After having Danielle cut my hair I NEVER want anyone else to cut it again!! I have naturally wavy hair, and it's tough for me to style to my liking. Each time Danielle cut my hair I've noticed it's MUCH easier to style, and requires much less effort. That's always a sign of a great cut. Danielle listened to what I liked and disliked and was able to give me the exact cut I wanted without me having to show her a photo. She was so fantastic I even brought my 2 year old to see her. I was pretty apprehensive about taking my child to a salon for a haircut. She's pretty wiggly and definitely has her share of terrible two moments. I was thrilled to see how patient Danielle was with her. My child loves her, AND she got a great hair cut. My husband and I have taken our daughter back to Danielle several times. After seeing how fantastic she is, he refuses to let anyone else cut our daughter's hair. The price for a child's cut is extremely reasonable as well!! I highly recommend Danielle to anyone in search of a great stylist. She's friendly, professional and extremely talented.
I am a Tucson native and have struggled with dry curly frizzy hair for my whole life... I've tried numerous products, stylists, treatments; you name it and I've tried it. I've tried a few stylists that were recommended on here but it never seemed to be a good fit. I decided to try Jacqueline Scordato, I called to make an appointment however she was busy so I tried Danielle. First this salon is no longer Designing Heads I walked into Jacqueline's salon which would explain how busy she is. I was greeted by a very friendly and outgoing staff, offered several drink options. They had snacks and fruit in the waiting room and fresh flowers all over the salon. The decor was cute and simple. I had a great shampoo with a wonderful massage (all the products smelled delicious) Danielle gave me a great cut and actually recommended products for me that were not only affordable they worked too! I have referred several co-workers and friends into the salon and the few that have made it in really loved it. This salon has great energy and was a lot of fun; I scheduled conditioning treatments just so I have an excuse to go back in
