- Michael A
Jul 06, 2010 - I went to this salon solely based on reviews from this site. Unfortunately, my expectations were not met. I gave Michael a picture of me from a previous haircut as an example of what to avoid. I clearly stated that I didn't want my hair to be much shorter, just shaped because it was not layered at all. Upon seeing the picture, he said, "Oh, that's too short. I'll just do a trim and shape it a bit." I thought we were on the same page. Although he didn't cut it as short as the previous stylist had, it was still shorter than I wanted it. He put crunchy gel in my hair, rather than something with a more natural finish, which I told him I preferred. It's a few days later since the cut and I am not happy with it. It's really not as nicely layered as I'd hope and is looking more like pyramid with small pieces sticking out from the back of my head. I'm hoping it will grow enough in time for my October wedding and I'll be going elsewhere to get it styled for that day. Finally, although Michael is personable, he cursed into my ear loudly several times. I have a pottymouth and am far from a prude but seeing as though this was our first meeting, I found the frat boy attitude unprofessional and it took away from the relaxing experience I like to have at a salon. I would never get my haircut here again and can't recommend it for women with 3C-type, tighter curls. I don't think that curly type is his forte despite his claims of being a curly expert.
