- Newbury Park, California, United States
Apr 28, 2012 - So, this is a re-review for Jessica and CA Styles, and my experience this time was a complete turnaround from last time. My older review is down below. Jessica and I talked about my last experience and why I wasn't happy, and we went from there.
Jessica did a very good job with my cut, and shaped my curls nicely around my face. She also trimmed off just enough from the ends to make my curls look healthy again, without taking off very much from the length, which is very important to me because I don't want short hair. We also pretty much stayed away from the Deva products, because she understood I don't like them, and didn't try to force them on me like other salons would. That's something I really appreciate; many places will use what they want regardless. I find the Deva stuff drying and my hair doesn't like that much protein - Deva just uses too much, and my hair doesn't like wheat protein in particular, which is what they use. She used a cream by Enjoy that I really liked, and I would probably buy except it was priced a little too high for my budget. But Jessica is very knowledgeable about natural remedies and homemade stylers and that's pretty cool; other salons might look down on someone who makes their own gel, but Jessica gets it.
She also waxes, and I had her do my eyebrows; they came out very nice and she has a gentle touch with the waxing as well. Her prices for both cuts and waxing are so reasonable that I would definitely be able to afford a revisit. Glad I gave CA Styles another try, and glad Jessica had the right attitude about moving forward from a less-than-positive customer experience and review: make it right for everyone without playing the "blame the customer" game. Thanks, Jessica!
