Wow. I had to create an account just to review Mindy after reading the horrible review written on 3/2013. That's so not my experience with her; in fact she's been AMAZING - she's by far the best stylist I've ever had for my 3b hair. I've been going to Mindy for around eight years at least, following her to Watertown from Cambridge, even when I didn't have a car. She "carves and slices" like a master, and has a great ability to debulk my extremely thick hair, all while having an instinctive sense of how to flatter my long face. I'd drive a whole lot farther than this just to get her to handle my hair. Honestly, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone with curly hair. Every single darn time she cuts my hair, it's outrageously flattering - and I had many horrifying haircuts prior to her, all by stylists who said "yes, I cut curly hair" and then left me looking awful. Anyone who has doubts, TRY HER - she's really, really worth it. Absolutely brilliant.
It took me 43 years to find Mindy and I'm not letting her go. She makes my curls look amazing (even when it is my turn to style them) and she makes my grays look downright hip. I am glad my daughter started at 5 with Mindy who loves her hair and knows just how to bring out its beauty. Mindy rocks with curly hair.
Hi lrichie, I am so sorry for your upsetting experience. If you contact me at Freestyle Hair Studio, I will gladly fix your hair or refund your money. In the future, you may want to contact your stylists personally and promptly to air out your concerns with their work so that they can fix your hair immediately. I don't believe that I am advertised as a salon owner. I own a business that rents space in a salon. I am a registered booth renter but I am the proprietor of Freestyle Hair Studio. If you were misled, I am sorry about that. I will remedy the situation immediately if you would be kind enough to let me know where I am listed as a "salon owner". Once again, please contact me so that I can put to rest any concerns that you have about your hair or my business. Mrs. Mindy Cooper
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS MINDY COOPER. Do not allow her to touch your hair. I am very upset right now and this review is necessary. I was referred to this website by a co-worker a few days ago. All I can say is I should’ve checked out this site and the reviews on it before going to a salon, especially whatever salon Mindy Cooper is working in. I went to Freestyle Hair Studio or JC Hair Studio, I can’t figure it out. From the two reviews below, it is the same person, on the same day (yeah probably Mindy Cooper herself). Red flag people!! When you have curly hair, do your homework so you know who is going to potentially hack their way through your appointment. Like Mindy Cooper hacked my hair. I am now on this site to hopefully find a real hairstylist who actually knows what they are doing. I went to a Mindy Cooper who advertises that she is a salon owner, yet the outside of the salon has a different name. I think it is more like she has a chair in this salon, according to the real hair stylist that had to fix Miss Coopers mess on my do. All I have to say to this is: poor business practice to have false advertising and have clients book with you thinking you might have more experience than you actually do. Obviously this woman is NOT a business owner, nor does she conduct herself as one.
Mindy Cooper is awesome. What she has done to my curly hair, no other hairdresser has done. First time I went to see Mindy (who was highly recommended by a great friend of mine)in Sept 2010 and she has worked a miracle. I was definetely stuck in the 80's/90's hair do, with bangs blown out and left my back/sides all curly... Mindy sat with me and went thru all the specific on curly hair. That i would only need to see her about every 3 months (which she is correct), Mindy give a wonderful cut. I recommend Mindy highly.
Have been going to Freestyle salon for over 1 year. Mindy has transformed by hair to my natural curl. I have learned so much from Mindy and her suggestions, I have received so many compliments since I went curly. I am very happy with Mindy. If you have curly hair and you just do not know what to do, my suggestions is to visit Mindy. She will do a wonderful job on your hair. Joanne
