- Dawn Farrell
Oct 04, 2012 - I travel to DC for business every week so I decided to find a place there to do my hair. It had been 7 years since I had let anyone touch my hair - since I had my husband shave it all off after it started falling out due to my chemo treatments. Needless to say I was a bit nervous. I had read the reviews that gave it high praise and it was just down the street from my office so I decided to give it a try. When I stopped in to make my appointment I asked to talk to the hair stylist about what I wanted done. I asked for Dawn, She had received high praise for knowing how to cut naturally curly hair. She and I sat and talked for about 10 minutes on what I wanted - hair cut, color, eye brows done, etc. When I came in for my appointment she took me over to the color bar and we talked a bit more about the color. I was currently a boring brown (home coloring job) and I wanted more of a reddish color. I also wanted something extra - a bit of flash. I told her I wanted something to match my personality. She said she would give me some highlights. She proceeded to cut my hair, then did the coloring. I sat under the heater thing for a bit then I had a wash out. She took me over to her chair and I saw the end result. At first I was surprised - I could see the red color (which I liked) but I couldn't really see the highlights. She started blow drying and styling my hair. We talked about my typical hair routine - wash, towel dry and go. She showed me how to do some things with it that didn't take a lot of time and gave great results. When she was finished drying and styling my hair I was almost in tears - it was PERFECT!!!! It was ME. The highlights were a very light red/blond in the curls that frame my face. The cut was perfect. It didn't look like she took much off but my hair has a wonderful shape now and it feels lighter. I would 110% recommend Dawn to anyone that has curly hair and wants someone that KNOWS how to cut it and style it. She isn't much for small talk but I wasn't much in the mood for any so that was good with me. I had a lady named Yvette do my eyebrows and upper lip and she was great. Very outgoing and very good at what she does. I had a cut, full color with highlights, blow dry and style, eyebrow and upper lip wax and bought shampoo, conditioner and a styling mousse that Dawn recommended for a total of $260. It was worth it!! I couldn't be happier with my hair - the cut, color and the style she gave me. In fact, I was so happy with the style I went out and bought my FIRST hair dryer right after I flew home to WI.
