- New York, New York, United States
Jul 12, 2009 - I started going to Carlos in 2002. He really understands curly hair and I could always count on great a haircut, but ever since he switched to Mario Diab the quality has gone downhill. My cuts have been sloppy and visibly uneven, probably because he only spends about 15-20 min cutting my very long 3C/4A hair. That includes him walking away in the middle of my cut to deal with other customers.
I'm also not impressed with the salon as a whole. I think the receptionist is rude, as if she's doing me a favor for allowing me in the salon. And the lady who washed and styled my hair the last two times, while meaning well, was extremely slow (took her 40 min just to wash my hair; I timed her) and had no idea what she was doing. I was told it's because she's a trainee. After 6-7 months in a curly hair salon she should know the right why to defuse curly hair, and if my hair is too complicated, they should give me someone else.
All in all, you probably will get an okay cut, but for around $130, I expect a whole lot more.
